Each page in Kentico is of a specific type – a page type. Each page consists of:
- fields (data structure)
- editing form layout
- transformations (design)
and other properties.
Note: Kentico also allows you to create container page types. Container page types are suitable for storing queries and transformations. They don't contain any custom fields as they are created without a coupled data table. Create container page types as you would a standard page type and select The page type is only a container without custom fields in step 2.
You can work with page types in the Page types application.
Page types are fully customizable – you can add, modify and delete any custom fields. The advantage of using custom page types is that you can define custom structure and store content (data) separately from design.
