In this post we wil discuss how to enable modern UI experience in Office 365 SharePoint online document libraries, as well as we will see how to bring back Site page link to create site pages in SharePoint online (Download PDF for FREE).

Recently we wanted to create a site page in Office 365 SharePoint online site to use Microsoft’s new Modern UI features. But when we open the new team site collection, we could not see an option to create a new Site Page (where we can use the modern UI feature). We can only see Wiki Page, Web Part Page and Link like below:

Also we can not see the Site Pages document library in Site Contents in SharePoint online.

Solution:
Here we wanted to have the Site Pages document library and also wanted to enable the New experience of the document library.

So first we need to activate the below features:
– Site Pages
– Wiki Page Home Page
