How to Create a New Publishing Page in SharePoint 2016

How to create a New Publishing Page in SharePoint 2016 and start collaboration with your team members.

Once a SharePoint site is published, you, as a member of a site, can add new pages to it. Go to Settings, select Add a page, and populate details for your page.

If the Add a page dialog says “checked out to you”, only you can be able to make changes to that page and the changes will be visible only to you. Once the page is done, check it in so that others can view and make edits to it. When all is done, publish the page to make it visible to visitors.

Templates allow you to save time on layout and design work. This allows users to focus more time on creating and formatting content for the site.

When features are disabled, options are greyed out. To have access to those options, communicate with your site administrator.
