Setting up Sites and Pages
Understanding site structure
The "structure" of a website has nothing to do with its physical layout, or
where pages are stored. Rather, it's a way of logically arranging the
content on the site so that visitors have an easier time navigating
through it. One of the most useful organizing principles—which
WebPlus strongly reinforces—is an "inverted tree" structure that starts
with the Home page and then branches out to other pages. To the visitor
navigating your site, this arrangement presents your content in a
familiar, hierarchical way, structured into sections and levels.
A section is a content category, each being a separate page, e.g.
"Home, "About Us", "Gallery", "Products", and "Contact".
The level is the number of steps (i.e., jumps) a given page is
removed from its "parent" page. The Home page will always reside
at Level 1, normally along with "section" pages. This allows
navigation bars to work easily and automatically. Pages one step
below the "section" pages reside at Level 2, and are considered to be
child pages of the "parent" page.
Viewing site structure
Two ways of viewing the site structure are possible: via the Site tab or via
the Site Structure View. The latter is ideal for viewing larger sites.
