Sector Starter kit Sector Add-ons

Drupal allows sitebuilders to create structured content types for a wide variety of use cases - without code. The Sector Starter Kit includes four base content types, with additional content types available as Sector add-ons.

Each content type includes preconfigured templates, view modes, and menus for hierarchical content - as well as automated lists and filtered views for taxonomy-driven content. Sector sample content also makes it easy for you to get started quickly.
