Content Configuration

This describes internal configuration of the selected content type.

This information is associated with all content items of the selected type and is accessed by selecting a type under the Content tab, on the Content Manager Dashboard.

Viewing

Require login to view
Does the user need to login in order to view these posts? Note this overrides the global per-site setting. Setting this to False, will allow non-logged-in users to view items even though the site requires login otherwise. (This may be desirable for Blogs.)
Maximum viewable in list
Maximum number of items shown in the list view. This number excludes sticky items. Note: 0 indicates no list, -1 indicates show all.
Truncate item in list view
When viewing items on the listing page, show a truncated version of the item or show the full item.
Use Teaser when truncated
If we're truncating items on a listing page (the previous option), and a particular item has a teaser, display the full teaser instead of the truncated original text.
Show Archive List
Include time-based Archive List to be displayed with these items. This is a way to show only a few items on the list, but still permit access to older items.
Show Titles List
Include an alphabetized list of all item titles to be displayed with these items. This is a way to show only a few items on the list, but still permit access to other items. Similarly, because the items are displayed based on published date, this list provides a sort of index to all items.
Show in Footer
Add a link to the list page for these items in the footer of all pages.

Editing

Anyone can create
Can anyone create a new item, or are items created only by administrators? Administrators can always create a new item and then set the Author field to another user, if this field is False. When True, all users will be able to create new items from their My Content dashboard.
Author can edit
In addition to administrators, can the author of a post edit their own post?
Author can publish
In addition to administrators, can the author of a post publish their own post? Turning this off is one way to allow Authors to write and review posts, but still require an administrator to make the post visible.

Features
