Data Files

Data files are pieces of content that don’t belong to a specific page or piece of content. They are commonly used for managing content like social media handles and links, contact information, and branding (e.g, logo images and site colours).

Forestry allows you to edit existing data files. They can be found under Data in the sidebar.

Customizing Fields

You can also apply Front Matter Templates to your data files, allowing configuration of the fields that are displayed in the CMS. To do so, navigate to the Data File you want to customize:

  1. Click the settings button in the top right, next to the “Save” button
  2. Click “Change Template”
  3. Choose the Front Matter Template you want and click “Done”
