How folders are structured to keep images, documents, includes, and other files separate from page files


This video will briefly go over the structure of most Site Executive subsites. Please note, that although we cover some information on folder and page processes in this video, more details on folder and page actions can be found in the "Folders, Folder Actions, Folder Tabs and Creating Folders" and "Pages, Page Actions, Page Tabs, Creating Pages" videos.

In the video, "Logging in, the Site Tree, and Navigating the Site Tree," we showed you how to navigate to your project folder. 

Our working folder for this demo is called "underscore beta slash site executive dash training."

When you're logged in under your account, you'll see a limited number of folders in this site tree based on the permissions you have.

For the purposes of this training, we'll stay inside this particular training folder right here.

Keep image assets and other documents adequately organized inside their respective folders based on their file types.

In the case of this demo site, we have video training images and includes. Included is empty at the moment, but we will cover the purpose of this folder in a separate video.

We're going to add another folder, docs. Enter the folder name, then click save.

You can upload any supporting documents for your site here including PDFs and Microsoft Word documents.

Images to be used on your pages will be added to the images folder.

Each page is assigned its own folder to ensure the functionality of the navigation system in SiteExecutive. This is especially useful when a page has child pages.

For example, if you have a page called "about us", a folder named "about-us" would have to be created.

Inside this folder will be a page called index dot HTML, which you will be able to edit with content.

In brief, this is the structure of a site executive subsite.

You have the root folder where there will be an index.html file.

You have folders that start with underscores which will be used to host the different file types that will be used on the pages of the site.

For example, if there are images to be used on the "about us" page, there must be a folder that contains them. These images will be located inside the main images folder, which corresponds with the about us folder in the site tree.

This structure makes it easier to organize your assets into specific sections.
