Site Outline

The Site Outline document should include an outline of your website’s organizational hierarchy.

First, create a rich text file named Site Outline. Save that file in a folder called Text.

Use Microsoft Word or any text editor that supports Rich Text Format (RTF) documents.

If you’re using Apple Pages, export your document as rich text as we’re unable to open .pages documents. To export an Apple Pages document, go to the File menu, select Export To, and then choose Rich Text Format.

Create your site outline in the Site Outline document.

Typical Outlines

These sample site outlines represent a typical website structure for photographer websites. Use one of these samples for guidance or create your own.

Pages that have subpages should not contain images. In other words, in Example Outline #3 there is a page called Weddings. Under that Weddings page are three subpages. Images would appear in the three subpage galleries. However, images shouldn’t be be assigned to the Weddings page.
