What they content types, why they are important, and how they can be used?

Like a lego set, content types are building blocks that you can use to easily put together your websites content.

When you create a new page on your website, the purpose of that page, how it will be displayed, and what features will be available for that page are determined by the content type. This allows for a streamlined content creation process.


What content types are available?

There are many different types of content types on the whitelabel. News pages for topical content, products and services pages, basic pages for general content, and many more.

How they can be used

To create a page using a content type, go to content, add content, and select your desired content type to suit the requirements of the page that you would like to make.

You can use the filter to find your desired page, edit using the edit button, or delete a page.
