Create your first content type

A content type in Spinal is a collection of content, like blog posts, documentation or a changelog. Each content type can hold many content items.

Your first content type #

You can add your first content type from two places: from the onboarding or by selecting Set up content from the sidebar. Both will open a modal that will ask you for some details:

Screen of the modal to add a content type

  1. Name, the name of the content type, eg. Posts, Documentation or Changelog;
  2. Repo name, the repo that holds your marketing site;
  3. Framework, the static site generator your site is built with;
  4. Source path, the parent folder where your content is stored, eg. src/_posts.

The Source path can have many sub-folders. It’s also the folder where all your new content will be stored too.

When you click Add, Spinal will fetch all content currently available. Depending on the number of files this may take awhile.

In the mean time, let’s invite your first team member.
