When you add content to your site and publish it, the content is saved as a custom record of one of these types. You can view or edit the record, and any edits you make to the custom record are immediately visible on the site. An example of when you might want to edit the custom record is if you may notice a misspelled word in a piece of text content, you can edit the custom record and correct the misspelling in the text. This makes the correction available immediately.

For each content custom record, there is also a CMS Content record that defines information specific to how and when the content is displayed on the site. See CMS Content Record.

Note

If you create custom content types, a custom record is created for each custom content type. See Custom Content Type.
