Chapter 18. Managing a Web > Web Site Management

Web Site Management

FrontPage makes designing Web sites and creating individual web documents easier than ever before. Creating webs, however, isn't the greater part of a Webmaster's work. Instead, that dubious honor falls to maintaining and updating webs. In fact, from start to finish, managing a Web site is every bit as important as creating one, even though the glory clearly goes to the people who make it look like something. Once a web is in place, however, it remains of interest to users only if it is frequently updated, with new information and new reasons for visiting constantly being built in. Your job as Webmaster is to make sure that everything gets done, and that the new and replacement elements are placed in the web so that they work right from the start.

Managing People

You might be in the position of using FrontPage 2000 to create and manage a web alone. In this case, the only person you need to manage is yourself. Assuming that you can be relied on to listen to yourself, FrontPage offers all you need to do the job. If you're creating and developing a Web site in conjunction with others, like a growing number of Webmasters, the management of people becomes quite probably the most difficult task of any you'll face. It's one thing to force a computer to do what you want it to do; it's quite another to get a group of people, no matter how small, to work together on a top-notch creative effort like a Web site. Workgroup dynamics, thankfully, are far beyond the scope of this book.
