Reference - Page type properties

Display name

The name of the page type displayed in the administration and content editing interface.

Code name

Sets a namespace prefix and unique name that serves as an identifier for the page type, for example in selectors or the API.

Table name

Displays the name of the database table used to store coupled data for pages of this type, i.e. the content of its specific fields.

URL pattern

Determines the live site (presentation) URL where pages of the given type are displayed.

If a site uses the custom routing mode, the URL pattern must be set to allow editors to work with the pages correctly in the Pages application, including features such as Preview mode, widget editing on the Page tab, or adding of links into text via the editor on the Content tab.

The system builds the overall page presentation URL by adding the URL pattern to the Presentation URL of the site.

Inherits fields from pages type

If a page type is selected and saved, the definitions of its fields are loaded and added to the current page type. These fields can be viewed and modified on the Fields tab.

Page type icon

Allows you to upload custom icons that will be used to represent the page type in various parts of the system.

Include in module package

Allows you to assign the page type to a custom module (only modules that are in development mode are available). The system then includes the page type in installation packages that you create for the selected module in the Modules application.

If you select a module, you cannot specify on which Sites the page type is available. The page type automatically uses the site bindings of the given module, which you can edit in the Modules application.

Use publish from/publish to

Indicates if the Publish from and Publish to fields are offered on the Content tab for pages of this type. These may be used to schedule pages to be published on the live site on a specific date and time, or shown only during a limited time interval.
