The Primary App

The Primary App is a special App in each Site which is automatically created whenever you start using 2sxc on a site. The core purpose is storing site-wide Settings and Metadata.


The content App has some special behavior and limitations by design. For example: It is not meant to be added to a page.

Since it is the primary App in a Site, some settings on this app affect other Apps in the site. Read more about Settings
