How can I create a new content type?

To learn how to create a new content type, we suggest you watch section 9, Extending Content in the video Drupal 7 Essential Training.

Note: You will need to assign permission for the new content type to any roles you have created.

  1. From the People menu, click Permissions.

  2. Scroll to the Nodes section and locate the rows for the content type.

WARNING: Do not assign permissions for content creation and editing to ANONYMOUS USER.
