Content Page


Description

The Content Page content type is the starting point for building pages from scratch as opposed to using a Cloneable Template. The Content Page has the same sections available as the following Clonable Templates : About, Basic, Basic +, Contact, and List.

Most of the pages on your site will likely be Content Pages. The Content Page using the Header Default and Body 1 - General Content are the equivalent of the General Content content type in the previous CMS.

The Content Page is an appropriate content type for most of the "interior" pages of your site.
