Opening or Adding Site Pages

Each site comes with one or more pages, such as the Home page. You can view existing site pages or add new ones. You can view and open site pages from the Site Pages page, which you can access from the Page tab or Site Contents. If you need a custom page, you can create your own. When you create a site page, a new blank page appears with a frame to add content. In the frame, you can create a text layout and then add and format text and insert elements, such as a table, picture, video and audio, links, App or Web parts, and embed code.
