I'm following the tutorial: http://docs.orchardproject.net/Documentation/Creating-lists and cannot go any further because there is not a "New List" option on the dashboard menu.   I downloaded Orchard through WebMatrix.  How can I remedy?  How do you create lists of content in 1.4.0?

Tutorial excerpt where I cannot proceed:

Creating a List of Books

To create the Book Review list, in the New menu of the dashboard, click List. Name the new list "Book Reviews" and in the Contains field, select "Book Review" from the drop-down list. Select the Show on main menu option, and enter "Book Reviews" in the Menu Text field. When you're finished, save the new list.
