Naming web pages

by dorightok / June 4, 2008 1:35 PM PDT

Hi!

I am building a website and I know the home page is to be
index.html. What directory html names do I give my other pages like
my "contact" page or "link" page or "about us" page etc.?

Thank you for responding,

Philip - dorightok

You can organize it anyway you want.

/index.html
/about.html
/contact.html
/contact/jeff.html
/contact/brian.html
/links.html
/articles.html
/articles/hardware/how-to-install-a-hdd.html
/artciles/news/new-software.html

Just a simple structure like that would be sufficient.

Organize your site with growth in mind

Having built a few web pages myself I tend to organize my files in a way that's easy to manage regardless of how many pages/images/etc I add. That being said I tend to put images in a seperate folder, scripts in another, and organize my html files by topic. Organization may not matter for a 3 page website, but if you plan on adding content periodically you really want to be able to manage the data quickly and easily. The final organization will depend on your specific content but I like to do something like this:

/images/shared
/images/gallery1
/images/gallery2
/scripts
/css
/html/news
/html/store
...

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
