What is CMS?

Content Management System (CMS) is a feature that helps you to publish, manage, and organize content easily on Typedream. It connects to your database in Notion, and allows you to display your data beautifully on your Typedream site.

When do you need CMS?

CMS is perfect if you need to display a lot of content of the same type. A couple of examples:

  • Blog
  • Directory
  • Knowledge Base
  • Podcasts
  • Newsletter
  • Marketplace
  • Product List / Shop
  • NFT collection

Blog posts.

How does CMS work in Typedream

Typedream will grab data from a database that you chose, and display the data in a beautiful manner based on a template that you chose during the setup process.

On the template, you would be able to set some texts or images to take data from your database. For example, you can set it such that your Button text would take data from your Price column.

There are 2 places where your data would be displayed:

  • Collection View: this is the view that shows a list of your items. For a blog, this would be the list of blogs that you have posted
  • Item Page View: we also generate a page for each of your items. For a blog, this would be the blog post itself.

You would be able to set a template for the Collection View and the Item Page View separately.

What Database can I use?

Here are the list of currently supported databases that you can connect to Typedream:

Notion Database

- Typedream Database (coming soon)
