Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Making a basic content inventory for the site, part of WordPress and Genesis DIY: Restaurant Website.
- Okay, we've looked at our goals and needs…and outlined the requirements to…give direction to the rest of our project.…The next step is to outline our site inventory,…or content inventory.…This inventory is a list of…every major item that will go on the site.…What is it, how is it organized…in relationship to other content,…what type of content does it contain,…and is there anything special about it?…That sort of thing.…All of this information goes into my inventory.…I'm using a Google spreadsheet here.…I like that it's easy to come back…and check items off along the way…or make notes about a particular bit of content.…
But, you can use whatever tool is most comfortable to you.…So, how do we get started mapping out content?…Well, I think the easiest place is to…start by thinking about the…navigation links you'd like to use.…So, right off the bat,…I know that I'm going to want a home page,…and an about page, and a contact page.…I also know that I want a page for a menu…and a place where people can make reservations.…
