Sorry if I'm asking a question that has been answered over and over, but I can't seem to find a clear-cut answer.  I see the "Feature table" answers the "Static Pages question with a statement of "Yes. You can create pages not part of the blog chronology". 

Are there some sample of how to implement this?  Is this referring to editing the *.master page.

A few video or blog sample would be a big boost to a newbie like myself.

By the way, love the framework of blogengine.  Great job!  I'm just anxious to be able to my hands around grasping the full design.


Best Regards,

You can use the admin menu PAGES to create a "static page" that will reside at "/pages/pagename.aspx"

or you can build your own at the root, or in subfolders, by "inheriting" from BE:

Chris,

1. Go into settings and create a new page. Save it. Notice the URL it creates.
2. Go into the templates folder/find the template that you are using and open the master page file.
3. Find the section in the html where the menu is located. Add the link there.

Don't you just love those "ah-ha" moments.  I'm sure to seasoned blogengine folks these questions drive them crazy.  I appreciate the two responses.  I'm getting it now.

Much thanks!

Chris
