- [Voiceover] Hi. I'm Morten Rand-Hendriksen, Staff Author at Lynda.com, and I'm delighted to welcome you to WordPress Developer Tips: IA and the Template Hierarchy. In this short developer tip, I'll show you how I combine information architecture and the WordPress template hierarchy to establish a leaner and more effective design and development process for my WordPress projects. First, I'll briefly explain what information architecture and the WordPress template hierarchy is. Then I'll walk you through the process of setting up information architecture for a WordPress project, mapping that architecture to the template hierarchy, creating a template map for your project, and finally, matching the template map to your starter theme.
Understanding and using information architecture and the WordPress template hierarchy in the planning and preparation of your WordPress project will make the design and development of that project quicker, more structured, and easier. And I'm here to show you how to do it right. So let's get crackin' with WordPress Developer Tips: IA and the Template Hierarchy.
