Page and Story Content Types


A page is the most basic Drupal content type. Characteristics of this content type include:

  • static content, and
  • infrequent updates.

A page may be (but isn't required to be) reflected in the main navigation system of the site. A page differs from a story in that, by default, a page doesn't post:

  • author information,
  • timestamps, or
  • comments.


A story is the content type used to post articles and is one of the two default content types in every Drupal installation. A story, unlike a page, does post author information, timestamps, or comments by default. The default settings can be changed so that a page is essentially the same as a story. A specialized form of the page content type is the book page.
