How do I create a new content type?



You can create your own content types over and above the content types that pre-installed in your system. The default content types are:

  • Product categories
  • Blogs
  • Information pages
  • Buying guides

You can add any number of pages under each content type.

  1. To add a new content type from the Neto dashboard, navigate to Setup & Tools > All settings & tools.

  2. Click the Control Panel tab and click Content Types Manager.


  3. Click the Add New button on the top right hand side to add a new content type.


  4. Give your content type a name, unique code and select the fields that you want to be available for that content type. You can rename the fields to meet your requirements.

  5. Below are some examples of different content types other businesses have created:

  • Recipes
  • Support Articles
  • FAQ
  • Training Guides
  • Customer Testimonials
  • Additional product category trees

In this example, we've created a category type called Training Material. To create a page in this content type, navigate to Webstore > Information Page and click the Add New button.


Under the Type of Content dropdown menu, you will now see Training Material.
