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 Pages app.

  2. Create a new page by choosing Add page in the action bar.

    1. Give your page a name and choose one of the templates.

      You can edit Page properties at this point or Save changes and do it at a later point by clicking Edit page properties in the action bar.
  3. Edit your new page by clicking Edit page in the action bar or double-clicking the page.

  4. To add content to your page, click Add component in the action bar or the + sign in the area you want to add the content. Select the type of component and where you want it to appear.

    Pages app - Adding content

    After clicking the Add component action, 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.
  5. Preview your page by clicking Preview page.
