Creating container page types

Container page types are suitable for storing queries and transformations. Container page types don't contain any custom fields as they are created without a coupled data table.

Due to their limited functionality, container page types do not have the Alternative forms, Fields, Layout, and Search fields tabs.

Creating container page types

  1. Open the Page types application.
  2. Click New page type. A New page type wizard opens.

Step 1

  1. Fill in the values:
    • Page type display name - the system displays this name to users in the administration interface
    • Namespace: namespace distinguishes your page types from the default system types that use the cms namespace. For example, you can use your site name as the namespace.
    • Name - page type identifier appended to its namespace
