Drupal Enterprise 7: Create a New Content Type

The following instructions are for websites using the default UMN Drupal Enterprise 7 configuration.

Content types are fundamental to how Drupal organizes content and controls how contributors add content to your site and how viewers experience that content. Add a new content type to your site only when you've identified a new category of content that will have multiple pages associated with it.

This is the first of ten tasks to Create a New Content Type.

Additionally, your role in Drupal may not have access to this tool. Contact your site administrator for additional information.
