The CMS Page Type record gives you access to the NetSuite records for Site Management Tools page types.  The CMS Page Type record gives you access to only the page type, not to the SMT content associated with that page type. A new page type record is also created when a user registers an extension.

You create a new CMS Page using your desired CMS Page Type, then add any desired SMT content to your new page.

The 19.1 release has one standard page type, landing page, that you cannot delete.

You can set the following the CMS Page Type Record attributes in Netsuite:

Name

The page name is an internal identifier for the page. This name is not displayed to the visitor on the website, but it does identify the page in NetSuite and in SMT. This field is also populated when an extension is registered.

Display Name

The display name is the external identifier for the page. This the name displays on the dropdown list when the creating a new page. This field is also populated when an extension is registered.

Description

This is a user defined description of the page type.

Base URL Path

The base URL path lets you customize the URL for all the pages of that type. For example, if you a have a page type of blog and a base URL path of blog, all blog pages are accessed by mysite.com/blog/[page url].

Custom Record Type

This lets you create a Custom Content Type (CCT) and associate with a page type. You create the new CCT and choose your customizations, this can be fields, Javascript code, CSS elements, and other custom module resource. This must be implemented through SuiteCommerce. 

CMS Creatable

When CMS Creatable is set to yes, then the page type is available on the page type list when creating a new page.

When CMS Creatable is set to No, then the page type is not available as an available type when creating a new page.

Inactive

When a page type is checked Inactive, it cannot be used to create a new page. Existing pages using this page type continue to work. Inactive page types remain visible in SMT for use in sorting and filtering operations.
