Part: II Designing a Home Page > Designing Pages with the Layout Grid

Hour 7. Designing Pages with the Layout Grid

In Hour 5, “Using Graphics on a Web Page,” you were introduced to tables, and how to use them in GoLive to create complex page designs. Get ready to be amazed even more because you are about to enter grid territory. GoLive's layout grids give you the ability to drag and drop elements on your page, much like you would in a page layout application. What might take hours of trial and error to create using tables can often take only minutes to put together on a grid. By combining tables and grids, you can create virtually any design of your heart's desire without even breaking a sweat.

So what exactly is a grid? In essence, GoLive's layout grids are nothing more than elaborate tables, but you don't see the table or have to worry about cells, columns, rows, or spanning—GoLive does all the work for you! We'll introduce you to layout grids in this hour, and give you some suggestions on how to use them to their fullest potential.

In this hour, you will learn how to

  • Place a layout grid onto your Web page

  • Adjust the size of the grid and spacing of the gridlines

  • Use graphics or text on a grid

  • Align objects on a grid and distribute the space between them

  • Decide whether you should use a table or a grid
