Planning to build a website

We won't be going through this section in detail in the tutorial. We'll be building a sample site with a lot of this thinking already done. But if you want to use your own sample content, have a think about these things and come prepared!

Or if you want to choose your own dummy content, rather than use the samples provided... here's some fun sites to peruse.

We get a few menus out of the box

But we can also add menus of our own

Views
