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.

Words

Purpose

What job will this site have?

  • sell stuff?
  • build a community?
  • documentation?
  • record an event?


Audience

Who will visit the website?

  • Personas
  • Demographics
  • Language / Geography
  • Devices / Browsers


Content

Getting the information architecture right from the start is important.

  • Content Modelling
  • Navigation
  • Search
  • Taxonomy

This is the stuff your website is all about. Here's some resources on creating compelling content for the web.

Style / Design / Mockups / Wireframes

We're using D8 Outta the box, so we'll be using Bartik. Not doing a lot of design, but still, need to think about colour, images, logo.

Planning Tools

There's a range of tools out there to help you plan your site. (know any others? Add them here.)

Join the community

We'll be working with Drupal8. The training sites we're using were built against HEAD late last week. So they're a little bit behind the bleeding edge, and they're very much in BETA. So we're likely to hit some rough edges. If you do, report them. To do that, you'll need to have an account on Drupal.org


Go to https://www.drupal.org/user/register

It looks like this.

We get a few menus out of the box

But we can also add menus of our own

Views

Views. The single most popular module for previous versions of Drupal, is now in core. It's a powerhouse. But complex. We'll start simple. Views is a list maker, a query generator. It lets you slice and dice your content in all sorts of wonderful ways.
