Creation and development of an online forum today online forums – one of the most visited places by people. And it is not about attendance solely on the network, but about life in general. Until recently, such a phrase may seem odd or just be completely misunderstood, but the realities of present day such that it is mostly on the forums on the Web people can discuss any topic, ask for advice, to find like-minded people. How to make Online there were new visitors, so to speak, "from outside", that he attracted people, and they want to look here every day and chat with other forum users? First of all, before the creation of the forum should give clear answers to three key questions: 1) Do you have an internal readiness to work with him? 2) Why is your forum will be attractive, and it will call people? 3) How many online forums on topics you planned and if you will try to do my original, totally different from others? Only to identify with each of these items that only you will understand, first, whether it is necessary to undertake this business, and secondly, in what direction you need to move. If you do decide to create a forum, as a first step, very clear, not only with its thematic focus, but with the tone in which, according to your estimates, should communication will take place on it. After registration, the forum is not in a hurry to advertise it on other sites and entice people. Coming to you on the ground, they do not find anything interesting, will not register and leave, but you raised questions Forum has a reputation in the early stages of its development. So to start work with the design. There is no need to do something incredible and amazing, but the appearance of the forum should be pleasant, attracting to themselves and the spirit appropriately selected subjects.
Errors in the structuring of the site will only lead to the fact that wander on your site and not finding the right information, the user goes to your site, and may not return ever. Good structure means that visitors of the site easy to find and use the information they need. By the same should be clear site map and link between different pages. Amazing restaurateur has much to offer in this field. Information can be structured in a visual and logical levels. Logic level is: create and name entries; job at all levels of nesting sequence entries, configuring access to the headings in the menu and other ways of navigating, linking content to the sections, the binding of additional information resources to the site materials. Often it happens that one or the other section contains much more text than can fit standard page.
No one will be flipping page indefinitely size of the text should be a maximum of 2500 characters. You may need to provide an opportunity to create additional partitions. Visual level – this site design. Necessary to cut a clear concept of 'site structure' and 'site navigation'. System navigation is created based on already established structures. Menu – a visible projection of navigation. Who is involved in setting up the site structure? Of course, the future site owner knows best and its production can be properly and logically put information about yourself.
However, and he may have questions. For example, how to place information about products or services: on the same page or set for each product group your page? Do section with the operational information, what information can be put as a contact, how to make the site structure easy to understand? The answers to these questions suggest the professionals – developers, web designers and programmers. Perhaps, the proposed scheme also oprostit the process of creating the site structure. The entire process can be divided into three stages. First, task. For example, it can be not only corny attraction clients or inform, but also PR executives, positioning the company as a leader and industry experts. The second phase involves creating a list of sections and pages of the website. At the final stage, the association all sections in one menu – tree sections. The most important thing when designing the structure – not just to project a traditional standard structure for all commercial sites on their own, and make the structure, appropriate tasks and business objectives. And more. In a well-structured site, users are free to move within the site without thinking about the structure of the site. Concern about the structure of the site – a problem the developers, not users.
On this occasion, remembered another story … Not so long ago in our This conference was held with the participation of Oleg Bunin (it was very interesting). During the lunch break, representatives of our company were at the table with a web-studio (we will not point fingers), and conversation, of course, went on. A young, solid-looking man prophesied that the need to create a supervisory authority with jurisdiction will include screenings web studios that do not meet professional standards … We asked for more details tell the story of his company: that of the control system, the benefits, how long they are on the market, and of what it costs to build a website naturally. Engine – samopisny, and less than 50 thousand rubles. fifth point of the master chair leaves (for our city is a good fee.) And then I accidentally found out that the company where I once worked a manager, ordered the site at that same web-studio work they are unhappy, serious young man remember the bad word, a site plan change, only money is really a pity …
Morality? This is not a fable, but do not let unscrupulous executors to circle around your finger. Ask questions, carefully read portfolio, you can even call the company and get some advice. And keep in mind, good design does not mean a good site! A talented designer – it's not a web developer! I mentioned this to the fact that many design studios have begun to position itself as a web studio, but the results leave much to be desired, because everyone should mind his own business! There is a tendency, at least in our town (population more 1m. inhabitants). As mentioned above, the market for creating Web sites is becoming more competitive. But leaders still firmly holding their positions. So as not to fall for another trick.
