Content type icons

The content type icon is used to help to visually identify a content type in the "create new content" window in the production view.

Icons are specified in the "register content type" window and you can choose one of our built-in icons or provide the URL to your own.

Choosing an icon for a content type

To add an icon to a content type when registering a content type, click the "+" in the "Content type icon" section. If you're updating a content type and that type already has an icon associated with it, click the pencil icon to edit the icon setting and then choose a new one.

The "Choose content type icon" window is displayed. From here you can choose from one of our built-in icons or specify the URL of your own. Several libraries of icons are available, each with different styles. In the example shown below the banner icon is chosen from the icon library called "Bond".

Choose an icon and click "Save".

Custom icons

For the carousel content type we want to use a custom icon- a grid of images. This will make the carousel content type easier to identify when we create new content.

To use a custom icon you need to specify the URL of a 256x256 pixel image in the "Add your own section". In this example the custom icon image has been uploaded to Content Hub.
