Chapter 2. Developing Site Structure

Chapter 2. Developing Site Structure

The underlying structure of a site often develops organically. As the developer creates the various pages and subsections of the site, files are stored in a variety of folders; as more sections are needed, any new folders created are placed wherever it seems appropriate at the time. Often, the site organization reflects the designer's own preferences (which is fine if the designer is the only one who ever modifies the site).

Macromedia Contribute, of course, changes the playing field. A site intended for use in Contribute is potentially modified by many people. More importantly, it's often vital that content contributors be restricted to their own area of interest: You don't typically want administrative assistants in human resources updating press release announcements. Contribute gives you the power to define who can edit which pages, but you need to structure the site with these requirements in mind. An organically organized site is no longer an option: The overall site must be laid out as carefully as any individual page. This lesson describes one structure that can be adapted to a variety of situations.
