Most content in a Drupal site will come from instances of Content Types. It is important to read the handbook page on Content Types.

The Content Construction Kit allows you to add custom fields to any of the content types using a web interface. In Drupal 6.x, custom content types can be created in Drupal core, and the Content Construction Kit allows you to add custom fields to any content type.

Upgrade Limitations

You cannot directly upgrade Content Construction Kit version 4.7 to Content Construction Kit version 6.x! You should carefully read the upgrade directions prior to upgrading.
