How to create the first page? All options grayed out, and "new item" missing.


I could not find any tutorials, but I have tried following the "gettings sarted" documenation section, which has a "create starter project" guide. I cant link to it, as this forum page always crashes when I submit the page with the link.

I created a blank project, and now I need to create a page.  The above article says:

  1. In Visual Studio, go to the Models folder, and right-click on Pages.
  2. Select Add > New Item, then Episerver and Page Type. 

The problem is under add there is no "New Item". There is only:

  •   Controller (Greyed out)
  •   Existing Item (greyed out)
  •   New scaffolded item (greyed out)
  •   New folder (greyed out)
  •   Add folder
  •   REST api client
  •   Client side library
  •   New Azure wep project
  •   Existing project as Azure web job
  •   Class (greyed out).

Any idea how I create a new page?

NOTE: I cant access the /episerver CMS ui, as I dont know the login.

Hi, same problem, there is no "new item" under add.

I think because you have one item so it is not giving option of pages

Can you please share the screenshots

OK, I have found a solution. I created a new episerver empty project, the same as I did before, and this project does have the new item option. No idea why the last one I created in the same way was missing the option.  Both projects "run" an episerver site.
