Content tab

In the Content tab, add the actual content to be displayed in your page by entering text and media to the fields.

The available fields and their structure in your page are defined by the settings of the selected page content type.

Here are some general tips on adding content to your page:

  • Add new content vs Add existing content:

    • Add new content - Select this option to create a new content block and add it to your Page. This content block can then be reused.

    • Add existing content - Select this option to use content that you previously created.

  • After a component is selected, new fields will appear in that section. Fill these fields with content as desired.

  • The required fields are marked if not filled out. The page can only be published after all required fields are properly filled out.

  • Changes are saved automatically by Compose app. As long as a page stays in Draft state, content is not live and cannot be viewed outside of Compose app.

Setting locales

In the page editor, you can switch between locales using the locales selector.

In Compose page editor, fields in only one locale are displayed at a time. However, the page will also display the fields that are not available in the currently selected locale.

NOTE: Locales settings are defined on the environment level in Contentful web app.

In Compose, there is no multiple locales view.

When switching to a different locale, the page will display fields both available in this locale and not.

Publishing a page

While you are adding or editing content in your page, the changes save automatically. Your page remains in draft mode.

To publish your page, in the page editor click DRAFT and select Publish.
