Created by Contensis product team, last modified by r.bromley on 20 Aug 2020

To define a new type of content in Contensis you'll need to create a new content type. The creation of content types is restricted to users in the Content Type Administrators security group. Follow these steps to create a content type:

  1. Press Content modelling in the sidebar. The Content modelling drawer will open, revealing a number of options.
  2. Select Content Types to open the Content Types Listing screen.
  3. Press New content type. A Create new content type window will be displayed.
  4. Give your content type a name, e.g. 'Films'.
  5. The API name will automatically be created and sanitised from the content type name you enter.
  6. You can add an optional description to distinguish the content type in the listing.
  7. Press the Create to create your new content type. The Content type builder will open so you can start adding fields to your content type.
