Now that a Car node type has been defined, it's time to start filling it with the fields that were mapped out earlier.

Required Optional
 Cost - Number  Picture - File/Image
 Year - Date  Description - Long Text
 Make - Select List  Options - Select List
 Model - Text  
 Body Type - Select List  
 Color - Select List  

To do this we need to make use of the Field manager.  Locate the Car content type on the Content Type list and click on its manage fields list.

The Field manager will appear.  This screen can be a little intimidating for new users, so let's break it down a little bit before we start adding & configuring fields.

The top part of the Field manager is a list of all of the fields that are included in the node type.

The middle part of the Field manager is used to create new fields as well as to locate existing fields that could be of use.

The bottom part of the Field manager is used to create field groups.

Now it's time to actually start adding and configuring some fields...
