How to Add a New Wagtail Page From Scratch
If videos aren't your cup of tea, the instructions to create a new app inside your Wagtail CMS site are below. Run these two commands in your terminal.
$ pipenv shell $ python3 manage.py startapp flex
Lastly you'll need to install the "flex" module into your Wagtail site. Open
base.py and add
'flex', to your installed apps. It'll look something like this:
INSTALLED_APPS = [ 'home', 'search', 'flex', # .... ]
Then you can run your server with
python3 manage.py runserver
Don't forget, when you create your new Page model, you'll need to run
python3 manage.py makemigrations and
python3 manage.py migrate
