  6. Scroll down until you locate your new Site Content Type, in our case "TestContentType".
  7. Select it by clicking on it and click the "Add" button in the middle to move it from the "Available Site Content Types" list to the "Content types to add" list.

  8. Click the "OK" button to complete the add the Site Content Type.
  9. The new Content Type should now show up in the Content Types section.

  10. Scroll back to the top of the page and click the "Pages" link in the breadcrumb.
