With Sitefinity CMS, content authors can create pages in a simplified and seamless manner. When creating a new page, you only need to provide the essential properties of a page. At any point in time, you can further configure the page behavior by defining additional page settings. Once you create your pages, you can easily reorder and manage them from the list of pages screen. Searching for a specific page is made easy with advanced filtering and sorting options.
To create a Sitefinity CMS page, perform the following:
Optionally, you can create a page as a child of another page by selecting the checkbox of the parent page and clicking Create a page.
NOTE: Be aware that URL names should be unique
NOTE: Sitefinity CMS uses a regular expression to create SEO-friendly URLs from the page name. For example, whitespace is replaced with a dash. If you need to modify the regular expression behavior, refer to the Replace special characters in Page URLs article from the Sitefinity Knowledge Base.
NOTE: This step is mandatory. If you want to start from scratch and define your page layout directly using the layout editor, select the default template for the corresponding framework. The default template contains one placeholder.
If you need to modify additional page properties, see the Modify page title and properties section below..
Sitefinity CMS pages expose additional properties that enable you to further control a page’s behavior.

Alternatively, you can select Title & properties from the Actions context menu available for every page in the list of pages screen.
