Display type determines how the lab interface displays to a user in a Security Labs lesson. These are the display types and how they change lab interfaces:

Display Type Lab Interface Change
site Shows the terminal, GUI editor, the web application of the lab in an iframe, and automatically boots the web application.
site (no iframe) Automatically boots the application of the lab, but does not show an iframe. Your user must click the URL to open the application in a new tab.
terminal Shows only the terminal interface and the GUI file editor. This is good for topics that are not application security; for example, a forensics lab.
terminal (no editor) Shows only the terminal, but not the file editor. This is good for topics that are not application security and do not involve modifying files.
external This is CTF-style (Capture the flag). It shows no terminal or application interface, and only shows an input box. This is good for open-research-type labs or quizzes.
