Useful tip: If you are starting with a blank site, first off add all the components, without configuring them. Then go back, and add in the configuration. This helps because sometimes you need to link components to other ones which appear later in the sequence, and if you haven't yet added them, you can't link to them.
Click on the boxes in the diagram below for details of how each component is configured.
