Re: [NH] (Semi-OT) Storyboard site planner?
- Hi Mike,
I use a notebook. I just sit and scratch around on it for a bit. It
looks a lot like chicken scratches at first.
During this phase I'm trying to organize what I think the content is
going to be.
I draw a couple of organizational charts (these too looking like hen
The hard sites to design (not that I am SUCH a veteran) seem to be those
I'm not quite sure what the content is going to be, or who it is
After a bit, the ideas kind of jell and links and content start lining

For planning a website, work out the main broad areas rather like a directory for the first level of
buttons or links, and then each of those has the next level, and then another level, so a website
is like an inverted tree. There should always be a way back to the top level, or the top buttons
stay visible, and sometimes there are cross links. For example, a top level link for galleries goes
next level down to the choice of galleries, but obviously those galleries will relate to topics
covered by other top level links, and so going deeper each gallery is accessed from the subject
as well, and thus is a way to the choice of galleries. With an inverted tree the website has clear
channels of development over time - where to place things - although as one account fills up the
complication for the author is to name the folders the same and keep the tree of links but which in
fact go across ISPs.
