The content of your site is organized in Reason by content type. Content types are exactly what they sound like—types, or kinds, of content.
Each instance of a content type is called an entity. For example, when you upload a new image into Reason you create a new image entity. An image entity will include the image, a title you give to the image, a short description of the image, and additional metadata. Your Reason site can have an unlimited number of entities for any content type.
Content Types Dashboard
All content types in Reason share a similar editing dashboard.
- + Add Link
Click + Add to create a new item.
List of Items
Shows the list of existing items of this type.
Clicking Preview will take you to a page that shows you all the information about the item.
Clicking Edit will take you to a form where you can edit the item.
Clicking Add child (pages content type only) adds a child page.
Select and Deselect (when associating items) will add or remove the item from the associating list.
Sort the list by clicking on the headers for each column of the table. The symbol indicates how the list is currently sorted; v indicates that they are ordered greatest to least and ^ indicates least to greatest.
- Current/Pending/Deleted Toggle
Switch between browsing current items, deleted items, or pending items.
- Sorting Items
Some types will have a link to sort items. This allows you to choose the order in which these items will be displayed on your public site.
Lists are usually accompanied by a filter box that allows you to search the list of items by attribute. Searches are case-insensitive, so you don't have to worry about capitalization matchin
The searches are currently exact phrase searches -- the words you enter will find items that contain that phrase exactly. For example, if there is an item with the words "I like cheese sandwiches" a search for "I like sandwiches" will not find that item, but a search for "cheese sandwiches" will.
