Navigate between the content types of a module

Each module appears under the Content tab, together with all of its first level content types. If you have only one content type at first level, only the module name appears. You can use the module to create dynamic content items. To open a module, in the main menu in the upper part of the screen, click Content » <Module name> or Content » Content type.

EXAMPLE: If you have one module named HR that at first level has two content types – Applicants and Companies. Type Applicants has two child types – Resumes and Cover letters. Type Companies has one child type – Job positions. Under the Content tab, Sitefinity CMS displays a group section – HR, below it links to Applicants and Companies.

If you have another module, named Vacations that has one content type at first level – Countries and the Countries content type has two child types Cities and Resorts, then under the Content tab, only a link to Vacations is visible. When you click it, the system takes you to Countries page.

If you have hierarchical content types, you can navigate down the hierarchy by clicking the respective child types, listed below each content item of the parent type. Once you have opened the page of a content type, you can navigate its sibling types by using the selector in the page title.

EXAMPLE: You have module Vacations that has first level content type Countries. Countries content type has two child content types – Cities and Resorts. To create a particular resort, click Content » Vacations. The Countries page appears displaying a list of created countries. Below each country title, you can see all child content types. Under the country where you want to create a resort, click Resorts link. The Resorts page appears, listing all created resorts. On this page, you can create a new resort.

You manage the dynamic content items on a separate page dedicated to each content type of your module.
The page displays a list of all created content items of the selected content type together with actions you can perform on them. You can manage what columns and information the page displays. For more information, see Modify the backend screens of a dynamic module.
Use this page to create, edit, and manage dynamic content items.
