Property Editors

Learn more about the default property editors that ships with an Umbraco installation.

A Property Editor is the editor that a Data Type references. A Data Type is defined by a user in the Umbraco backoffice and references a Property Editor. In Umbraco a Property Editor is defined in a JSON manifest file and associated JavaScript files.

Are you looking for the Grid Layout or Nested Content?

The following Property Editors have been removed with the release of Umbraco 14:

  • Grid Layout

  • Nested content

We recommend using the Block Editor or the Rich Text Editor Blocks instead.

When creating a Data Type, specify the property editor for the Data Type to use by selecting from the "Property editor" list (as shown below).

Umbraco comes pre-installed with many useful property editors.
