Now that the Content Type is complete, you should now go ahead and create one or more pages of Article content to use for testing throughout the remainder of this gude (they can just be fake/test pages for now). Go to Create Content > Article, fill in all of the fields, and "Save" the content.

After saving the Article, you'll notice that:

  1. As expected from the "Display fields" settings earlier in CCK, the Article Teaser does not display on the page, while the Article Subtitle does display.
  2. The URL path to the article is example.com/articles/name-of-article as you set up with the Pathauto module.
  3. Custom breadcrumbs have appeared near the top of the page: "Home › Articles" (and the Name of the Article is shown below as the page title/heading). For the moment, the "Articles" link in the breadcrumbs does not work - that will automatically begin working after completing the next section of this guide, Using Views module to create a "listing" of Articles.

Later in the guide you'll learn how to theme these Article pages to look exactly the way you want them to.

I set up “Display fields” as the following, but the article teaser still displays on the page even I did clear the caching data from Performance. When create a new Article, the Article Teaser is a required field. How to hidden it?

Thanks for your help!

I got no breadcrumbs and this error:
