Forgive me if I seem a bit dopey but...

I have built a website (http://www.mishdesign.com/pharma) by hand using HTML and CSS. I am having difficulty finding information on the SS website on how to integrate this website into SS.

I have followed the instructions on downloading SS and WAMP and can run the SS example website without difficulty.

I need some assistance please in sorting out where I put my existing .htm files and .css files to run my site on SS. I assume that I will need to make some changes to my files in order to do this but just need a little help in getting started.

Many thanks in advance

I suggest you read the first tutorial to get your head round the ways to setup navigation, links and SS template files

http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tutorial:1-building-a-basic-site

the first third contains stuff not of much use to you as you have it installed! but further on it goes into the Silverstripe features such as <% control Menu(1) %> for the main navigation
