A content type is a reusable set of data fields that are packaged into a "type" of content that can be used and displayed consistently throughout your site.
Most content types are used to create individual content items that will then display on a Content Type List Page. A list page is a single database page, displaying all items of a specific content type (e.g., the /news page displays a list of all News items). List pages may include 1-2 filters (e.g., checkboxes allowing you to filter all News items by Category).
