Dear all member!

I have migrated a theme that I created using bootstrap to silverstripe recently. I want to create another web page, for ex, "About Us". I saw this when I logged into the admin console, but when I clicked the link "localhost/silverstripe/about-us" it simply redirected me back to my main page. I assume it's because I haven't actually created the about-us page yet, so how would I go about creating another page with its own URL (for ex on my localhost: localhost/silverstripe/about-us) for silverstripe?

Do I just create another Page.SS somewhere and then start typing html again?

Also, I want to make certain areas of my website editable via the admin console. However, when I login to it and select Home, under the "Content" window the text is the text that comes with the default simple theme. How do I make it so that certain areas of my HTML will be editable for example an admin could modify images and text?

I tried to follow the silverstripe video tutorials. In lesson 4 "How to Work with Multiple Templates", I see the user creates a Home Page that relates to $Content. I'm not sure where to put $Content in my Page.SS and I just put it in my body, so when I tried to follow the steps and created HomePage.SS in mysites/code, I was met with a lot of red errors upon flushing with /dev/build. Is that the way to create a new home page, or am I doing it wrong?

Thank's a lot!
