Update name

To update the name of your content type, simply retype the name in the Details panel of the content type.

Update description

The content type description provides summary information describing what the content type is used for. It is displayed in the Content type listing screen and during the entry creation process.

You can update the description in the Details panel of the content type. You will need to save and publish any changes for the content type to be updated.
