How content is structured in Kontent.ai
A content item is any piece of content in your project. It is made up of elements, such as texts, images, files, etc.Each content item is based on a single content type. A content type is a template that defines the structure of the content item – which elements it contains, their names, limitations, guidelines, and so on. Mix and match the available elements to define your own content types.
