Content types overview

Created by Contensis product team, last modified by r.bromley on 22 Sep 2020

Content types allow you to describe a type of content broken down into smaller parts or chunks. A ‘film’ content type could contain the chunks such as title, film poster, length/run time, budget, overview, director and cast members.

You can create new types of content by using the content type builder. Each chunk in a content type is defined by a field. A field has a name, a data type and a set of additional properties such as validation, editor types and content guidelines.

Content types can be linked together using entry fields to aid the building of rich content models and relationships. For example, linking a film to a list of cast members located in a content type of people.
