YOUR UTENSILS ON THE RACK
Folders, and what goes into them
Before you start creating, you first create a site and organize content in folders. Organizing files is an art and one that helps keep you sane in the long run. Also, if someone else cooks in your kitchen later, they will not spend endless time searching for ingredients.
CREATING THE BASE
Layout and navigation
Irrespective of the type of website you are trying to create, you need a layout that looks good and is highly functional. You add and arrange your items on top of HTML pages. You then link these pages in a way that your users find content that is most relevant to them.
SERVING YOUR DISH
Uploading your files to a website
After you are done creating with your website, you upload it to a server so that everyone who has access to the internet gets to see it. For a nominal fee, you can work with a hosting vendor to buy a domain name and space before you use Dreamweaver to upload your site to the server.
