This tag is used in conjunction with the [MM_Form] tag. It is used to identify sections of content that have a certain significance within the current form. Identifying the content allows MemberMouse to perform specific actions that enhance the user experience. For example, on a checkout form by using this tag to create a shipping info section, MemberMouse can dynamically show or hide the shipping information based on if the product being purchased is shippable. This ensures that the user will see only those fields which are necessary for them to fill out based on their unique situation.

In this example, I'm using the [MM_Form_Section] tag create a number of different sections which contain account info, billing info, shipping info, shipping address and coupon form content. Setting the form up in this way allows MemberMouse to dynamically show or hide these sections based on what the current user is purchasing.


IMPORTANT NOTE: When MemberMouse processes the MM_Form_Section tag it creates <div> tags and takes the content from inside the MM_Form_Section tag and places it within the <div> tags created. For example, this...


[MM_Form_Section type="accountInfo"]
This is my content.
[/MM_Form_Section]


Becomes this...


<div id="mm-account-information-section">
This is my content.
</div>


This is important to note because you'll want to make sure that the content you place within the MM_Form_Section tag doesn't conflict with the surrounding <div> tags. For example, these are valid...


[MM_Form_Section type="accountInfo"]
<div class="someStyle">
This is my content.
</div>
[/MM_Form_Section]

<div class="someStyle">
[MM_Form_Section type="accountInfo"]
This is my content.
[/MM_Form_Section]
</div>


These are not valid...


<div class="someStyle">
[MM_Form_Section type="accountInfo"]
This is my content.
</div>
[/MM_Form_Section]

[MM_Form_Section type="accountInfo"]
<div class="someStyle">
This is my content.
[/MM_Form_Section]
</div>
