Contentful Content Model editing
October 26, 2020
Content modeling is a foundational task of any item-based CMS (as opposed to a “page based” CMS). The establishing of “atomic” units of content, their rules, and how they are related to each other is a starting block for any implementation.
In the case of Contentful, this task can be done via the web-based application interface (as well as via API). It provides an easy way to create fields, validation, content relationships and interface tweaks for the content entry task.
This screen is the view when you initially edit a content model, and gives an overview of the fields, what type and order they appear in. Additional functions appear under other button and link options.
