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 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:

  1. 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 02.mypage.
  2. 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.
  3. Save this file in the user/pages/02.mypage/ folder as This will tell Grav to render the page using the default template.
  4. 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.
