Your Control Panel
You can create as many pages as you wish, but in general most people have one main 'Home Page' which they use to display information about themselves - eg. contact details, CV's etc.
You can also use the Control Panel to upload files (eg. WORD docs, PDFs, audio and media files etc.) which are then linked to your webpages.
Your Web Pages
As mentioned above, you have your own home page, but you can create any number of other web pages as well. These other pages are classified as General, Blog Entry, News Item or Article. The system uses these classifications to organise your pages for you, keeping all the articles in one place, the Blog entries in another etc.
As well as creating web pages you can also upload resources. A resource is a Picture, Download File, Web links or a Video Link. Once created a resource can be attached to a web page.
Below is a description and explanation of the links on the control panel:
