Edit an Entry

With Contentstack, editing an existing entry is an effortless task. You can change the site language to which an entry is mapped, choose to revert an entry to an earlier saved version, or simply edit the existing content.

Select a content type

To edit an entry, log in to your Contentstack account and perform the following steps:

  1. Go to your stack and click on the “Content Model” icon on the left navigation panel. 
  2. Select the content type that you want to edit from the list to which the entry belongs.
  3. Click the entry title to edit it. 
  4. Click on Save or Save and Close to save the changes.

Change language

To change the site language in which the entry needs to be published, choose an option from the dropdown list available under the language selector. Saving an entry in another language will localize it. See Localize an Entry for more info.

Switch versions

If you have created more than one version of the entry, you can load content from an earlier or later saved version by simply selecting the appropriate version from the link given on the top-right corner. The information in all the fields will change depending on what was saved in that version.

Edit text

You can edit the content of each field individually.

View entry URL

When you edit an existing entry, in the URL field, you will notice a tiny eyeball icon. Hovering on this icon displays the complete URL of the web page (for example, http//www.example-site.com/sample-page) where the entry is published. Click this hovered link to visit the web page and view the entry.
