Creating content

Depending on the type of asset you want to create (e.g. page, folder, document or image), you will add your content to a specific site in the CMS.

  • Other than files (documents and images), all page content is added on the particular website where you want your content to appear.
  • Files (documents and images) are uploaded to the Shared Assets website in the CMS. All users in the CMS have access to this global website. Then you can link to these files on your website.

Types of assets you can create

Note that the options available to you may vary depending on the site you are currently editing.
