Clicking on New Page yields the following menu where you can choose the format for your new page.
If you are using a template offered by Homestead, clicking About, Contact, Index, Services or Testimonials will open a new page that duplicates the original. Selecting Blank opens a new page with just the Header/Logo from the template.
White Page (start from scratch) - Use this option if you are designing your own pages and not using a  template.
Page Title - You can enter the title for the page here or wait until you save the page.
Add Page to Navigation - This option is checked by default and will only work if you are using the java-script navigation from the template.

Open - Click to open pages and files within your site

Open Recent - Shows pages you have recently opened.  Clicking on one will make that the active page.

Close - Closes the page you are working on - A box will open asking if you wish to save changes. This will only open if you have not saved changes.

Save As - Allows you to save the current page under another name.  It does not eliminate the original page. It copies the content.

Here you can customize the Error page to match your site.
The Error page comes up if  a page you have deleted or re-named is still in the Search Engine's cache.

Publish -Publishes your page to the Web.  Choosing Publish All will publish all pages you have open in SiteBuilder.

Switch Sites - If you have more than one site you can use this option to close out of the site you are currently working on and go to another.
