Hi!

Ok, now I know how to code pages; but I am just sure there is some logical and best way to name and store the pages on a web site.  I'm sure it's quite simple -- something like create a directory for each kind of (but WHAT kind of) thing...  Please can you help -- where can I learn about how to best store pages and parts thereof for a site that could become quite large?

Thanks so very much!!!

This is all sujective, but here's what I do.

1)I make sure all file names are something logical that could be figured pout by my replacement.  (i.e. for a stevie wonder page - bio.html, collaborations.html, stevie.jpg)

2)if they're sequential, then number them in order (bio1.html, bio2.html.)

3)I create a subdirectory for all images called images. (<IMG SRC="images/pic.gif">)

4)I make subdirectories for sections that are likely to get bigger over time, or that hold a lot of related information (steviewonder.com/discography/song1.html, steviewonder.com/discography/song2.html)

5)I keep ALL file titles lowercase.  This doesn't matter for NT servers, but it does matter for Unix.  The exception could be java class files. (StevieWonderGame.class)

Thanks, Jello.  I appreciate your response.  I had already established directories in which things "in common" are stored -- such as all gifs/jpgs in one, all forms in another, etc.  I'd just thought there was some kind of "magic" or a certain way one was best advised to do things.  Appreciate the tip about Unix; though not on a Unix server, I will remember that for the future.
