In this example, we are going to create a sample About Us page. Write some text and save it as about_us.ctp. Static pages must be saved with a ".ctp" file extension, and rather than spaces, use underscores.

To set a page title, add the following line to your file:

$this->pageTitle = 'About Us';

To view the page, go to the following URL:

If you would like to shorten the URL to exclude "pages", add the following line to app/config/routes.php:
Router::connect('/about_us', array('controller' => 'pages', 
'action' => 'display', 'about_us'));
