    Simplifying Page Design - Simplifying Pages


    (Page 3 of 4 )

    While it would be nice and simple to take the same basic layout and apply it to every single one of your pages, this idea isnít really viable. Itís also not really the best you can do for your site. There is a way to give your visitors more without creating too much more confusion for yourself or for your overall Web site design.

    Instead of looking at every page on your site and coming up with a unique design for each, focus instead on design layouts for different types of pages. No matter how extensive your site, itís likely that you really only have a few different types of Web pages to showcase. So, think about what youíve got and start simplifying design.

    Itís likely that your content pages create the bulk of your site, taking up the most space and providing the most diversion for your traffic. Content pages featuring a single article or blog post can all follow the same basic layout.

    Other content pages will include multiple listings for different pieces. For instance, in the layout above on a main content page, several different pieces of content will be displayed in the middle section. Each piece will have a link so that visitors can read further, but perhaps only one or two paragraphs of each piece are displayed. Your content pages could also lead into comments pages, forums, search results pages or other areas of your site.

    Your forums, comments pages and search results listings will no doubt have slightly different layouts from other pages of your site. The main page will also look different. When you have design ideas for each type of page, youíll have a good start on creating a look for your site as a whole.

    Think about the other types of pages you have on your site, such as the main page and content category pages. Come up with a few simple, broad layouts that will suit the different pages you want to display.

    Youíve got an idea of how the pages of your site will look. Do you have any idea how to actually make them look that way?
