Hour 3. Planning and Defining Your Project > Considering Site Organization

Considering Site Organization

There are many opinions on the proper way to organize a Web site. Some people like to compartmentalize all the files into directories and subdirectories. Some people like to have a very shallow structure, with many files in a single directory. As you get more experienced at Web development, you'll find your ideal organization. It's nice to exchange ideas with other Web developers or hobbyists so you can learn from the successes and failures of others and they can learn from yours.

I have a directory on my hard drive called Projects, shown in Figure 3.14. The Projects directory contains a directory for each project I'm working on. Within each project directory there is a directory called Web, set as the root directory for the project. This is the directory where I keep all the development files for the site and the directory that I set as the root in Dreamweaver.
