Edit this Page
To edit this page, simply navigate to the folder you installed Grav into, and then browse to the
user/pages/01.home folder and open the
default.md file in your editor of choice. You will see the content of this page in Markdown format.
Create a New Page
Creating a new page is a simple affair in Grav. Simply follow these simple steps:
Navigate to your pages folder:
user/pages/and create a new folder. In this example, we will use explicit default ordering and call the folder
Launch your text editor and paste in the following sample code:
--- title: My New Page --- # My New Page! This is the body of **my new page** and I can easily use _Markdown_ syntax here.
Save this file in the
default.md. This will tell Grav to render the page using the default template.
That is it! Reload your browser to see your new page in the menu.
NOTE: The page will automatically show up in the Menu after the "Home" menu item. If you wish to change the name that shows up in the Menu, simple add:
menu: My Page between the dashes in the page content. This is called the YAML front matter, and it is where you configure page-specific options.
