XF 1.4 Create New Page - what's the URL portion?

#1
I created a test page using "Create New Page". Now I'd like to view it. Where can I see this new page? What's the URL to it? Here is a screenshot:

For completeness purposes... I did the following to create a Menu tab that points to the above test page:
  • In the Admin panel, I went to Templates and searched for "navigation"
  • I placed the following code between Forums and Members section and the new menu called "Test-Page" appeared visible to users who were logged in
HTML:
<xen:if is="{$visitor.user_id}">
   <li class="navTab PopupClosed"><a href="{xen:link pages/test}" class="navLink">{xen:phrase Test-Page}</a></li>
</xen:if>

It's up to you.

You can include it in the page template directly but if you plan to use the CSS on other pages, I would recommend adding it to a custom CSS template and then calling that in the page content.

To expand on this question, where can I type some simple text that will be shown when someone views the page? It is a tad unclear in Admin. Thanks!

First time Xenforo user. I'm unable to create a page node because I can't come up with a valid url. Get an error on the url every time.

This is the valid url for a category node at the same level
http://brazosinvestor.com/forum/index.php#who-we-are.1

What is the valid url for a page at the top level titled Page Example?

Getting errors for
http://brazosinvestor.com/forum/pages/page-example (with and without end /)
http://brazosinvestor.com/forum/page-example (with and without end /)
http://brazosinvestor.com/forum/index.php#page-example (with and without end /)

I've checked the help available at these links but still can't resolve.

https://xenforo.com/community/pages/example-page/
https://xenforo.com/community/threads/frequently-asked-questions.5183/

And once a page is created, where is the link that shows how to make a page into a navigation tab?

Thanks for the help.

What are you actually entering in the field?

It should be something similar to page-example.

That would require an add-on or you would have to edit the navigation template and add it manually.

I have tried all 3 of these, and tried them with and without a trailing slash /
I think what I really need is the entire url answer. That is, if "page-example" should actually be appended to the full url, the full url is what I need.

As you see above, I have used "page-example". Got that part. It's the rest of it that's catching the error, I assume.
