When a Section is moved, all links to and from that Section are updated. Similarly, if the Section features in navigation or site maps generated with Navigation Objects, those will be updated too. However, if these links are renamed, the urls can be broken, so be careful when renaming sections so that you aren't breaking important links.

Adding sections
