You create content types from the module’s detailed page.
NOTE: Each content type can have multiple child content types.
For example, in the FAQ module, the content items can have a short text field Question, a long text field Answer, and you can also classify the questions, using categories.
NOTE: You must create at least one field that is short text and required.
NOTE: If you have chosen to add Choices field, such as radio buttons or multiple choice, you must enter a value for each choice you create. The value must be unique of each choice. It is not visible by users in the interface. Keep values as short as possible. You can enter, for example, 1, 2, and 3. These numbers are used by developers to refer the choice in the code.
NOTE: If you are using multiple backend or frontend languages, you can automatically display the label in the respective language. This is valid for choice fields, such as radio buttons, dropdown boxes, and multiple choices. This way the choices of a radio button are displayed in the respective language automatically. To do this, create a new label using procedure Create labels. Remember the Key and the Type of the label. Then when you enter a choice, in the input field, enter the following: Resources:<Type of resource>, <Key of resource>.
For example, if you have entered a frequently asked question How to install a module, then in the list of content items this question will be listed as How to install a module and its URL will be how-to-install-a-module.
