Authoring content

The first step to authoring content is to create your first page in the Pages app. It is the first app in the Favorite apps section after logging in.

Pages app in Favorite apps


  1. Open the app and create a new page using the action bar on the right-hand side.

    Pages app - Add page

Edit your new page by clicking Edit Page in the action bar, and add content via the actions on the right-hand side after selecting a component on the page where you want to place content.

Pages app - Adding content

After clicking the Add component action (in the action bar or its icon in a green bar on the page), the list of components in the dialog is disabled if there are no other components to select. In this case, you’d add only the default one presented in the dialog.

Once you’ve added content, preview how the page would look on the web using the Preview page action.
