Edit Content Types

Once created, content types can be edited to add or delete data fields as necessary.
  1. Sign in as a content administrator in your browser and click Content under Administration in the left navigation menu.
  2. Select Content Types from the drop-down menu.
  3. Select the content type to edit and click Edit in the banner menu.
    A slide-out panel shows the content type definition, displays the data fields used in the definition, and lists additional data field options.
  4. Add additional data fields, edit settings for current data fields, or delete current data fields.
    1. To add an additional data field, drag the field from the list into the definition and supply the requested settings just as you would when creating a new content type.
    2. To edit settings for a current data field, click Edit next to the data field and change the settings.
    3. To delete a current data field, click the X next to the data field.

      Note:

      If a content type has published content items associated with it, then you cannot delete a data field from the content type until those content items are unpublished. If a content type has draft content items associated with it, deleting a data field from the content type also deletes the values of that data field in the associated content items.
