Either click the Login to the Backend link you see above or simply add /Sitefinity to the back of the URL to get to the administration login screen.
Enter your credentials and click Login.
If you’ve successfully logged in you’ll be redirected to the Sitefinity CMS administration dashboard. Click the Pages tab in the top navigation.
Since you haven’t created any pages yet, the first time you visit the Pages page you’ll be presented with the view below. Click ‘Create a page’.
In the create a page view for simplicity sake simply enter ‘Home’ for the name of the page, keep the rest of the default values that you are presented with and click ‘Create and go to add content’.
You’ll notice that when you entered ‘Home’ as the name of the page Sitefinity CMS automatically created the URL for the page and also used it as the Title which is used for SEO purposes.
In the page editor view, expand the Navigation panel on the right side of the screen. Drag the widget called Navigation into the content panel on the left side of the screen called Body. Click Publish when you have added the Navigation widget to the page.
Back on the Pages view you’ll now see the new home page that you’ve created. You can immediately view the page by clicking the view link in the page row as seen below. You’ll also notice that Sitefinity has automatically flagged this page as your home page depicted by the little ‘home and page’ icon in the status/page column.
It’s nothing spectacular, but it demonstrates how easy it is to setup and configure Sitefinity CMS 9.2 on Microsoft SQL Server 2016 and IIS 10 and create your the first page.
That’s it for this series. I’ll be covering more Sitefinity CMS topics in future blog posts.
