While the Scrivito Example App has multiple page types already defined, the power of Scrivito is it's ingrained flexibility. Eventually, there will be a time when you want to provide a unique page type for your editors to work with. Page types allow the developer to provide some consistency to the website and to make additional layers or ways to provide content available.
The Example App comes with the following page types already built in: Author, Blog, BlogPost, Event, Homepage, Job, LandingPage and a basic Page. In this tutorial, we are going to create an FAQ page to showcase how to create your own custom page type. While an FAQ page could easily use an existing page type, this tutorial will develop a very plain page type to keep it simple. But do note that the fewer page types you have the better, as it makes your editors’ job a bit easier.
