  • 0:12
    we're going to need to create a new basic content
  • 0:14
    type that is just for events.
  • 0:17
    And we're just going to need things like a title, a description,
  • 0:20
    and application just to get our basics in place.
  • 0:23
    So in this lesson, we're going to create the initial event
  • 0:27
    content type that we need to use.
  • 0:29
    And then we're also going to look at our permissions to make sure
  • 0:32
    that people can actually use the new content type.
