I am new to Silverstripe Framework / CMS. I see `./mysite/code/` as controller and `./themes/simple/...` as template directory. I logged into the admin panel and added new "test" page. The menu appears on the website with the URL `` and content is displayed.

So what I want to know is, how to access the new controller let say ``. I want to access the URL `` without adding the new page `download` in admin panel. Thank you.
