I should have included this in the tutorial. Here is the current contents of my HTML Code page (excluding the notes).


Web Design Step 1: The Tools…

No matter which web site development application you use (I prefer RapidWeaver over Adobe GoLive or DreamWeaver), it is a great benefit to have an arsenal of tools including a text editor (with support for html, css, js, php, etc. files – I prefer TextMate), a css editor (I use CSSEdit), and a debugger.

The debugger is perhaps the most important, yet the most often skipped… and the best one is free! I know this because there are too many help requests in the RapidWeaver Forum that could have been answered in the time it took the author to ask the question, IF they had the right debugging tool!

The browser FireFox (free) supports a host of Add-ons (most, if not all free). The hands down winner for debugging is the add-on FireBug (free).


Page Locations

Every web page has a file (document) name and location. In RapidWeaver, this information is entered in the Page Inspector / General Settings in the fields Filename and Folder.

Up until recently, I kept my pages organized in folders. Most of the time I used a folder name pages to keep everything except the home page, which must be located in the root directory. This seemed like a logical way of organizing a site.

While looking through information about SEO (Search Engine Optimization), I found that using the folders may have not been the best thing. So, I now place almost all pages on the root directory by using just a slash ( / ) in the Folder field. While I still don’t like this, pages may do better with SEO results.
