Chapter 14. Rolling Out Contribute > Creating Style Guides

Creating Style Guides

Throughout this book, you looked for ways to help the Contribute user achieve a desired result. Templates expose only certain editable areas while locking others; settings in the role definition limit the size of images; and shared assets allow only specific resources to be included into pages. However, there comes a time when you have to expect that the content contributor will be on her own to create new pages with a great deal of information. Naturally, you want to support the user and continue to help her produce material that's appropriate.

One of the most helpful tools that you, the designer, can offer to a content contributor is a style guide. In the world of print, a style guide is a document that depicts and/or describes how the publisher wants an author to format content. The same style-guide concept translates very well to the Web. The user can see exactly what's expected, and the style guide can easily be printed through the browser if necessary.
