The Data Type determines what type of content you can provide. As many other functions within Nodinite Custom Meta Data fields are plugin-based which means that you can further extend and expand Nodinite. The list of available Data Types is expected to grow over time.

All content and values come from the Values list. Before the list can be managed you must first select a Data Type.

Repository Types

To keep the Repository Model clean and user-friendly Custom Meta Data fields can be associated with the context where they are intended to make sense. Nodinite is context-aware and will provide this information where it makes the end-users more aware and as a result, your documentation has more meaning.
