This guide describes setting up the Cascading collection section.
Use the section to display items (products) from a collection, arranged in a cascade layout. A cascade layout arranges items in columns. Inside a column, the items follow one after another to create a succession of items on a store page.
In the previous video, a Cascading collection section is displayed on a store's homepage. As the page scrolls up/down, the collection items (product tiles) are displayed one after another. This creates a succession of items inside the section's cascading content area.
For general guidance with modifying sections, refer to Sections overview and Shopify help: Sections and blocks
