Form2Content Content Types

What are 'content types'?

The first step in using any CCK (Content Construction Kit) is to determine what type of content you want to construct. In Form2Content we call these "Content Types". You can create as many as you like and this is done in the Content Type Manager.

Import & export of F2C Content types

From F2C Pro it is possible to export and import content types. Please note that when you want to transfer a content type to another website the Form2Content and Joomla version need to be the same. The reason is because of possible differences in settings and options.

Form2Content & multi-language websites

Thinking about the structure of a multi language website is essential. Joomla provides native multilingual support and there are extensions that can help. We like to "stick to the core" and recommend to use the Joomla native multi language support. Please do also remember. There is NO magic way in translating content. Each language version of a website is a website in it's own right.
