In SharePoint 2013, when I create a page from "Add a page", the content type is not what I want it to be for that page. How can I change that? How does SharePoint pick the content type?

Can anyone explain?

Thanks

In SharePoint , When we are adding any page in Pages Library it is associated with the Page Layout and this Page Layout is linked with the Content Type , we can understand this by creating new Page layout from Design Manager .

enter image description here

So , from here when you're creating a New Page layout you can assign any existing content type to the New Page Layout or you can create your own content type and assign that.

enter image description here

so , here we have the control to assign the content type to the particular Page Layout , and while creating the Page we can select our Page Layout from the list.

  • I found my issue, under master page gallery and page layouts, the page layouts had a blank value for associated content type. So I just fixed it there.
