Create a view, mine is index.html.erb for the test_it controller:
The only thing I have not completely resolved is the use of the simple_cms_item partial that sits in the plugin's app/views/shared directory. I tried forever to use append_view_path to share the partial over. That worked, as in it found the partial, but the application layout went away, so instead, you can just copy the partial to your RAILS_ROOT/app/views/shared directory for now.
Additionally, you can install it through github: script/plugin install git://github.com/pullmonkey/simple_cms.git
And of course, a lot of you have asked how to just plain download it, well you can do that here, find the download button and click
