Forestry allows editors and guests to manage their website in a variety of different ways. This enables developers to build powerful, static sites while empowering editors to take full control over their content.
For more information on guest and editor roles see user roles
The most basic type of content in Forestry is a page. Pages are any ungrouped content in your static site, such as an about page or contact page. They appear in the Pages collection under Content in the sidebar.
Collections are grouped content in your static site. These are feeds or hierarchies of content, such as blog posts or landing pages. They appear under Content in the sidebar.
Data files are special content files that aren’t rendered as HTML pages in your built site. They are used for adding rich metadata site-wide, like authors or company information. They appear under Data in the sidebar.
Pages, collections, and data files can all be searched by the
title field and by filename.
