Overview of content create/edit form

The Content form

When creating or editing any content in GovCMS, you’ll use the Content form.
Each of the different content types mentioned in the previous page can have different custom areas depending on how a site is configured.
At the same time, there are many areas common to all content creation forms.
An overview of the Standard page form is shown below to highlight these common areas.
