Design & Planning your Web site

Step 2 - Laying out your Website

Organizing the structure of your site carefully from the start will save you time. If you begin creating documents without thinking about where in your folder hierarchy they should go, you may end up with a huge mess of  folder & files, or  related file names & folders.

The usual way to set up a site is to create a project folder on your local hard disk that contains all the files for your local site, and to create and edit documents within that project folder. Publish or copy the files to a Web server when you are ready to publish your site for public viewing. This approach allows you to test changes in the local site before making them publicly viewable. Once finished, you can upload the local site files to the server and make updates as required.

Break down your site into categories and put related pages in the same folder. For example, your company portfolio, contact information, and products might all go in a folder, while your newsletter pages might go into a different folder. Using sub-folders by type will organize your site and make maintenance and navigation easier.

For example, it's convenient to place all your images in one location, so that when you want to insert an image into a page, you know where to find it. Designers place all the non-HTML items on a site in a folder called assets.
