After a fresh django CMS installation, you’ll see the welcome screen, which allows you to create website pages with a simple click.

The “New page” field is already selected. Click "Next" and enter "Home" in the "Title" field and then click "Create." Next, we’ll add a second page for our blog. Click the "Create" button in the toolbar:

Click "Next" to create another page. Name it "Blog" and click "Create."

Click on the first menu entry right next to the django CMS logo (with the name you gave your project)  in the toolbar and choose "Pages…". This will open a frame containing the page tree. Here, you can order and change your navigation at any time. 

Now, click on the language circle next to “Blog” (currently marked as grey) and hit "Publish."

The first page you create is always published ("Home" in this case).

A published page is indicated with a green circle, grey signifies that the page is unpublished and the pulsating blue colour means there are changes that haven’t been published.

To proceed, click on the eye icon ("View") next to “Home” to view the Home page. Once you click on the "View" icon, the sidebar will close and you will see your newly created Home page, which simply displays a text so far.

Now, let’s learn how to manage files so we can start implementing our theme.
