Adding content with the content type

Now that we have built our content type, we can begin to use this type to add the specific Bread & Pastry item nodes to the site.

Build Bread & Pastry items using our new content type, for display on the website.


  1. We will start by clicking on the Add content link in the toolbar menu. Drupal will now open the same list of possible content types that we saw when we built our static pages in Chapter 2, Creating the Artisan Bakers Collective Website.
