Content Types

What is a Content Type?

A content type is any content element on your site that requires its own unique fields and display, based on its purpose and the kind of content it contains. 

Many websites have news items, blog posts, job listings, etc., as well as standard, informational pages—and each of these can be created using content types. Each one will have its own set of fields and place on the website, and will have one or more displays, such as a list (this may look like a filterable directory), map, calendar, or detail view.

Note: Each content type can also look very different depending on how it was developed and designed, and the unique content needs of a particular website.
