Reference - Page type properties
Due to their limited functionality, container page types do not have the Alternative forms, Fields, Layout, and Search fields tabs.
|Display name||The name of the page type displayed in the administration and content editing interface.|
|Code name||Sets a namespace prefix and unique name that serves as an identifier for the page type, for example in selectors or the API.|
|Table name||Displays the name of the database table used to store coupled data for pages of this type, i.e. the content of its specific fields.|
Only available for content-only page types.
Determines the live site (presentation) URL where pages of the given type are displayed. Must be set to allow editors to work with the pages correctly in the Pages application, including features such as Preview mode, widget editing on the Page tab, or adding of links into text via the editor on the Content tab.
The system builds the overall page presentation URL by adding the URL pattern to the Presentation URL of the content-only site.
|Inherits fields from pages type||If a page type is selected and saved, the definitions of its fields will be loaded and added to the current page type. These fields can be viewed and modified on the Fields tab.|
|Page type icon||Allows you to upload custom icons that will be used to represent the page type in various parts of the system.|
|Include in module package|
Allows you to assign the page type to a custom module (only modules that are in development mode are available). The system then includes the page type in installation packages that you create for the selected module in the Modules application.
If you select a module, you cannot specify on which Sites the page type is available. The page type automatically uses the site bindings of the given module, which you can edit in the Modules application.
|New page settings|
|New page||URL of the page that will be used when creating new pages of this type.|
|Show template selection|
Note: The template settings are not available for content-only page types.
Indicates if users will be required to select a page template when creating a new page of this type.
|Root page template category||May be used to limit the page template options available for pages of this type to a specific sub-section of the template catalog. When creating new pages of the given type, users can only choose from the templates located under the specified category or in its child categories.|
|Default page template||Sets the page template used by default when the page is created. If no page template is specified, new pages inherit the template of their parent by default.|

|Use Page tab|
Note: This setting is only available for content-only page types.
Indicates whether the Page tab is displayed for pages of the given type in the Pages application. Also sets the Page tab as the default tab after creating a page of this type.
