Chapter 4. Working with Sites > Site Diagramming

Site Diagramming

When starting a new Site, you could just start building pages one at a time; but a more structured alternative is to use Navigation view. First you lay out the site’s structure by creating empty pages in a hierarchy of unresolved pending links generated to and from the home page. Later, when the pages have content, these pending links can be resolved naturally by creating hyperlinks that reflect them. It’s the equivalent of drawing dotted lines so that you can trace the proper paths when the time comes.

Two types of generic pages are used for building within the Navigation view. Pages contain unresolved pending links, whereas scratch pages have no pending links of any kind. Pages are blank HTML pages that appear in the view with an empty-page alert to indicate that proper links are not yet in place. Scratch pages are added only as placeholders to facilitate linking pages to the hierarchy at a later time.
