Extra pages?

I've read a few posts about how to add a links page, and It's clear as mud to me. I'd like to add several pages - privacy, about us, etc. I'm assuming that I either create new templates for each page (which breaks the tags), or use the cptemplate.html code and import content, much like the CP content. But the explanations I've read make no sense to me. Can anybody clarify the situation?

Give this a whirl:

Try going to the store IDs section of cpadmin, and creating a new entry, but change the type from "Store ID Entry" to "Content File."

Give it a filename, and click "Edit File".  Put some text or HTML in there, and save it.

Then visit your store.

Did that, and got an error message on the site that the cpcontent was not found. I checked the 'hide from sidebar and home page' box and the home page loaded, but then what? Assuming this worked, what would the URL be?

I guess I should mention that this is tied to a basic shop with only 18 products. There's no 'sidebar', no 'sections'. Just a page with the 18 items.

Hmm, you may have to create another subdirectory called "cpcontent" and chmod it to 777.

I already have a "cpcontent" subdirectory, set to 755.

It may need to be 766 instead.  If it's 755, that means it's not writable.

I've got to take my father out to lunch, but if you're still having a problem getting this to work before I get back, email me the info for your site and I'll take a look at it.

Figured it out. Had to temporarily insert the sidebar code into my template, but then I was able to grab the URL and figure it out from there. Thanks.
