Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I would like to know what steps to take in beginning a website starting after the story board phase.
What do i do first the visual in fireworks then move it to dreamweaver and then the scripting (php is quality!) and css?
could someone spell it out for me
step 1 =
step 2 =
as i would like to be thorough and produce quality work from the get go.
Thanks guys and by the way these forums have helped me alot so far and it is wonderful to see professionals taking the time of day to steer beginners in the right directions.
Step 1: Browse through this site and absorb the wealth of knowledge available here.
Step 2: Browse through this site and absorb the wealth of knowledge available here.
Step 3: Browse through this site and absorb the wealth of knowledge available here.
Step 4: Implement that knowledge.
1: get the sketching/brain storming done on paper to get rough ideas
2: gather any photos etc that i may want to work with and take them into photoshop to produce a few roughs.
3: slice as neccassary and build a bare bones template with the css basics done - oftem switching back to photoshop to tweak and touch up.
4: when the templates done and im happy then i can paste my php in to get all working and make any final adjustments.
ideally the first thing to do is build content - as much as you possibly can. this may give ideas about how you need to structure the site and db , create the navigation etc.
(good idea to create a kind of sitemap at this point - on paper i mean)
p.s. welcome to webmasterworld. if you want to get into web dev then your definately in the right place
- Write loads of content.
- Select images, and write captions.
- Design navigation.
- Code site, taking care with title, meta description, headings, etc.
- Spellcheck everything, twice.
- Validate every HTML page and the CSS code.
- Tweak as necessary.
Remember that no site is ever finished.
