Design | site page | external links | white catalog | Add site

Designing the pages of the future site is best to start on a sheet of paper. Sketch on it first sketch of the main page. Specify everything schematically to the smallest detail - what, where will be located. At the same time, place all parts evenly over the page - without emptiness in one place and “cluttered” in another. It is not recommended to write inscriptions on the drawing itself; for this purpose, use numbered footnotes.

Make sure you don’t forget such important things as contact information , copyright information , a place for external links and a good location for internal site navigation .

If the plans intend to advertise , then the place under the banner is desirable to choose in prominent places and evenly across the page. Advantageous location will serve you in future work with advertisers in good stead.

When compiling the navigation menu , you should clearly and clearly represent the structure of the site being designed. To do this, make another drawing, but in the form of a map of the proposed site. It might look like this:


Add site

Be guided by the most important principle: the user must get to the page he needs in a maximum of two mouse clicks. Remember the greatest number of visitors to any site are inexperienced users and they really need to be given the opportunity to navigate the site in the easiest and fastest way. Do not surprise them with bizarre forms of navigation and try their patience in finding the right one. In the headings of the menu and links should be viewed their meaning and theme .

Now it is time to switch to other pages. Everything must be done on the same principle as with the main one. The remaining pages of the site should be the same in style and design . In addition, each of them had a separate topic . For optimal work with search engines, it is this layout of the site that you should strive for . Consider the possibility of returning to the main and previous page. As you finally think of everything, you can turn on the computer.

First, create a folder where the site will be located. In it create several folders - directories . The number of the latter depends on the complexity of the tasks facing the site. They will be placed separately: drawings, photos, documents, script files, etc. With a large number of pages (to avoid confusion), it is possible to decompose the pages themselves into directories, but only that part, which will be secondary (articles, books, documentation, etc.).

Anything that does not go into directories , and will be located in the original folder is called the top level of the site. It should contain important pages for the site that will be indexed by search engines. The solution to increase site traffic is the white directory to add a site. Categories can be both thematic and non-thematic.

Further, it is advisable to decompose all the available files into directories, guided by the outline of which was mentioned above. There is nothing to add, besides, the site was convenient for the user. By doing this in advance, you will not be distracted from the main work to search for the desired file in different places (HDD, CD, etc.).

When choosing names for all files, be sure to consider the fact that they must include only English lowercase (small) letters , Arabic numerals, and the characters "_" and "." (point).

When choosing a domain, i.e. The url should be considered to make the URL easy to remember. It should be added url was short and not too long, did not have hyphens, because the deac in url is recognized only by google. Url needs a close website theme, i.e. Name of the site. The URL is your name and description of the site.

Then you need to decide on the HTML editor . Using it, put on the page common elements (graphics, text, navigation menu, etc.) that will be found on each page of the site. Thus, you unify the page that you will be a template . If desired, it can be multiplied by the number of pages of the site, giving them different names.

With this form of design, you only need to adjust (add, remove, change) the necessary elements and change only the content (text) of each of the pages.

And the last . I would like to give very useful advice to those who do not like to "fiddle" with paper and other office when drawing up sketches. For this ideal editor "Web Page Maker" . Small, clear and convenient. Any beginner can handle it. With its help, any page can be easily modeled, and the built-in generation in the HTML code will save it to a file.
