About publishing-enabled content types

Modifying a content type enables you to customize all pages that use that content type. For example, if you want to add an additional image field to all Article pages, you can do this by modifying the Article Page content type, which makes the field available to use as a page-layout element. Any pages to which the content type is applied will be able to use the new field.

You can manage and customize content types that have the Publishing feature enabled by using the Content Type Gallery page of the top-level site in your site collection.

  1. On your top-level site, click Button image , point to Site Settings, and then click Modify All Site Settings.

  2. On the Site Settings page, under Galleries, click Site content types.

  3. Click the content type that you want to modify.

When you modify a content type, you can choose whether to have pages that inherit from that content type use the change or not.

There are six content types that have the Publishing feature enabled. The following table shows each type, where it is listed, and its description.
