The different content types

In the default settings, there are seven different content types:

each of which serves another purpose and will be described here.

The CMS content

The CMS content is the most basic for of content within the pulse application, Its main use is as an container for editorial contents, such as articles, essays, news, your imprint etc.
You can use it for many other purpose too, as you can enter here nearly everything you want, as long as it is valid HTML.

The store content

The store content is the simpler version of the two product contents availiable within the pulse application. The store content and the associated store bundle serve as a product catalogue, where you can display all your products and the related product information. These product contents are purely informatory.

The shop content

Shop contents do contain all those products you want to be featured within your online store. Altough very similar to the store contents, there are some important differences, namely do the store contents have the possibility to define a price, taxrate and other things that are important for an online-shop.

The filter content

The filter content is a special content, which has the sole purpose of serving as a container for a content filter, so that the filter can be linked to the sitemap.

The file content and the URL content

Similar to the filter content, these two core contents do also serve as containers only. With their help you can link a file (e.g a PDF) respectively an URL/Link directly to the sitemap. 

The content group

Content groups have no actual content of their own, they do only serve as a structural element. Content groups are used for displaying the summaries of different contents at the same time, e.g. several products of one product group like DVD’s or printer supplies. To see a content group in action, just navigate to the menu-item 'The content registry'. This overview list is the result of a content group linked to that sitemap node, showing the summaries of all its direct child-nodes.
