Getting Started with T4

Adding content to TerminalFour (T4) can be as simple as copying a piece of content from one location and pasting it into a content type in T4.

Make sure you have a plan for your website and have decided on the most appropriate content types that you would want to use based on your audiences and your site goals. When you are ready, navigate to the destination section in the Site Structure where your content should be placed. With two browser windows side-by-side, create new content types for each piece of the source content in the destination section and copy and paste your content piece by piece.

Alternately, you are welcome to compose in T4.

Format

Some content types incorporate a text editor that allows you to format your content. Refer to the text editor techniques and guidelines and editor buttons and check out our type hierarchy demonstration to learn the different options the editor provides for you.
