The content-type Resource

The content-type resource determines (among other things):

  • What kinds of content items a publication can contain

  • What fields each kind of content item contains

  • The type of each field

  • Constraints on what you can enter in fields (maximum length, maximum and minimum values and so on)

  • How the fields will be displayed in the CUE editor

  • What relations each kind of article can have

The following sections provide an introduction to the content-type resource, and some of the things it is used for. For a full, formal description of the content-type resource format and all the things you can do with it, see here.
