How to add a subfolder for the Public Website in Sharepoint

I have Office365 for Small Business. I have created many pages with articles of mine, but I would like to collect all these pages in a new folder. To my astonishment I read that it is only possible to make a new folder on the Team site, but then again I also read that it can be done under certain circumstances (with or without Sharepoint Designer OR Designer Manager). It is all very confusing to put it kindly. Can anyone shed some light how one can create a new folder on a Public Site?

You can add folders in document libraries like this:

1.

   Got to the document library where you want to create the folder

2.

   From the Library Tools ribbon select the Documents tab  

3.

   On the New panel select New Folder -> Name the folder -> Save
Unless I'm misunderstanding something , this should be simple.  It may therefore be something in your particular setup that is preventing this?   Have you used a document library?

Oops, you are right. I first thought that there was no documents Lib on the Public Site, only on the Web Site.  So thank you very much. But can I then ask another question?
I have created several new pages on the Public Site, how can I move them to the Documents folder so that they reside in a special folder?.

(Yeah I'm new, I have been working for 7 years with Drupal and thiss is a somewhat different environment).

SharePoint is all about lists and libraries, pages are created in a special list (usually "Site Pages") however its probably not a good idea to expose that to world.

Without any details I would recommend creating links to your pages in the "quick launch" (down the left) by going to site settings->navigation->quick launch.  

If you really want a list of links, then you could create a links list and put links to the pages in that.

Alternatively use the Content Editor Web Part to create a html web part, and build your links in that.

Thanks. I have found the Site Pages and created a folder in there and moved an article to it.  Then I went to my Homepage and created there a hyperlink to that piece. Easy.

However I have also used a used the Table of Contens Web Part thinking I could set the Start From point for it on the newly created folder. That seems impossible, I have tried all sorts of urls, short and long, but the table of contents keeps on starting from the Homepage. This means that I cannot set that Webpart to include the contents of the newly created folder.

BTW: In Site settings there is no option 'Navigation'

Thanks, but that doesnt apply to Office 365 SMALL BUSINESS (which I have, but which doesnt seem to be sold anymore). This is a relevant remark because for instance on the page you refer me to there is a mention of the possibility to remove links by clicking on the X behind the link.
In the menu in my version there is only such an X behind the 'Home' link, and neither the default links, nor the one I have added have such.
There is however in this menu an option to click on an eye-like icon, which then changes into a dash, which means the link will be hidden ( but not removed). This 'hide' option is NOT mentioned on the page you refer me to.

So unless you suggest something different I'll open a ticket at Microsoft.

Ah I see, I thought something "unusual" must be happening :)
Check your premission level - have you got full rights on your site?

Well on the Site Setttings under Colletion Administrator I am the only one, and supposed to have full control.

Collection admin should be fine.
Unfortunately I do not have an equivalent system to try this on so I am struggling to help you further.
I would suggest MS is your best option.
