Front End

A Standard Entry is always on its own. How can you recognize one? There are no breadcrumbs - the sign that indicates that an entry belongs to a section.

When creating a Multiple / Post (Entry) you'll notice in the upper left corner the posts' breadcrumbs, indicating their membership to a particular section. In the example below, the entry belongs to the Blog section.

Please notice also that, in the lower right corner of the page, there's always a link to the next and prior entries of the section.
