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.

Specifying 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, you will need to remove the current icon setting by clicking the trash can icon and then add a new one.

The "Choose content type icon" window is displayed. From here you can choose from one of our built-in icons or add the URL to your own. 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. The custom icon image has been uploaded to Content Hub and we'll enter the URL in the "Add your own…" section.

To choose one of the built-in icons, select one from the "choose one of ours" section.

When you've entered a custom URL or chosen a built-in icon, click the "Choose content type icon" button
