Delete content type

We can delete any content type but we must have several consideration before it. Ask the question before we delete - Did any impact when we delete the content type? Let's see what happen when we delete content type

  1. What happen to the content / node from the content type: The content remain in the database (but we cant use it anymore)
  2. What happen to the Field associated to the content type: Custom field will gone, but field that shared across multiple content types remained
  3. What happen to the content type if any Module link to it (eg: AddToAny, Webform ets..)


Taken the above question into consideration, so before we delete any content type, we must do this:

  1. Delete content / node that associated to that content type
  2. Consider disconnecting the content type from these other modules before you delete it
