  1. Thank you so much for this! I was stuggling with a sub-site trying to retrieve the content types and it was not pulling back the parent site content types. I was using get_contentTypes() rather than get_availableContentTypes().

    So in summary:
    get_contentTypes() – Only retrieves that sites content types
    get_availableContentTypes() – Retrieves current and parent sites’ content types
