Kentico CMS 5 Website Development: Managing Site Structure

by Thom Robbins | October 2010 | Beginner's Guides Microsoft Content Management Web Development

In this article, by Thom Robbins, author of Kentico CMS 5 Website Development, we will learn about managing the site structure.

Site organization is essential for any site. Site structure is the organization and navigation of a website for users and content managers. Websites are designed in a visual hierarchy. This visual hierarchy is the cues of content based on importance to help visitors process information, very similar to what is used in cartography. In a way, a site is just a map of information you need to help site visitor view and process the information they are presented based on importance.

Human visual perception is what we use in our everyday life to take cues and create a mental model or map to process information more efficiently. This is why visual hierarchy is so important in Web design, especially as people tend to have short attention spans. Some visual cues in life and web design that you may be familiar with.

  • Size
  • Color
  • Contrast
  • Shape
  • Position
  • Whitespace
