Construct a working draft
At this point, a draft version of the site is created. Work on the site draft proceeds
according to the work plan, with the Site Coordinator supervising construction and
keeping things on track.
To make pages in the site draft available for review, they can be posted to a test directory.
For instance, if the Web address for the live site is www.organization.com, the working
draft could be posted to www.organization.com/new.
Tip: Employ page templates
Using pre-fabricated page templates is an excellent way to keep sites consistent. Templates
save work, make adhering to standards easier, and minimize mistakes. All current site-
building programs allow the creation of templates, and most automatically update pages
created from the template when the template is changed.
Using the design models, create a template for each section of the site. Make the templates
available for use by the Web team in building the site draft.
