Create a Web site with FrontPage

Sketch of Web site structure

Sketching out a structure before creating a site in FrontPage can save you lots of work later.

Once your site's goal is defined, you'll probably be eager to start designing your site using FrontPage, right? Not so fast. We recommend sketching out the structure of your site beforehand, as shown here.

Use a pencil and paper (or a diagramming tool, like Microsoft® Visio®) to draw boxes for pages and arrows for links. Remember to keep your goal in mind as you do this.

This is essentially the process of creating a visual outline. And it will save you a lot of time to do this on paper before your site is constructed. Just think: It's easier to erase a few boxes and start over than it is to delete and rebuild pages in an already-built Web site.
