Content WYSIWYG

The default content type is simply called Content but is more commonly referred to as a WYSIWYG, an acronym for "what you see is what you get." A WYSIWYG is an open content area for a variety of material such as text, images, media, and more.

A serving of Content WYSIWYG also comes with sides! Use the optional add-ons for even more ways to serve up your content. Sorry we don't have fries, but if we get enough feature requests...
