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

I have built a website ( 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

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
