Changing page type icons

Xperience allows you to upload your own icons and associate them with page types. You can also use a font icon class as a page type representation. This can be useful if you create custom page types or if you want particular page types to be more easily recognizable in various parts of the system (for example in the website content tree or when selecting a page type for a new page).

To change a page type’s icon:

  1. Open the Page types application.
  2. Edit () the page type.
  3. On the General tab, you choose between two types of images: 
    • Image – upload a standard image file.


      • Page type icon files must be in the .PNG format.
      • The system automatically converts the image you upload to the appropriate size. However, we recommend at least 16x16 pixels for the small icon and 48x48 pixels for the large icon.
  4. Font icon class – select an icon class from the icon picker.

  5. Save the changes.

You have changed the page type icon.

Where does the system use page type icons?

Users can see the smaller page type icons in, for example, the content tree of the Pages application.
