Building Techniques
This section teaches you how to make your website files so that you can upload them to your server.

Follow this set of rules so that you will avoid confusion and complications in future.

1. Lower Case Always
Always use lower case characters in naming all your files (including all graphics and media).

2. Naming Structure
Use a hierachy structure so that when you look at all the html files, files that are on the same level are listed together.

For example, if you are making a games site, you may have online games, tips, screenshots etc. Without using a hierarchy structure, your files may be listed like the following:

cdman.html
cdmantips.html
cdmanscreenshot.html
gamelist.html
pacman.html
pacmantips.html
pacmanscreenshot.html
scrabble.html
scrabbletips.html
scrabblescreenshot.html

This can be be tedious for example if you need to update the screenshot files for every game. After they are updated, you again need to pick out all the updated screenshot files to upload to your server. This can get even worse when you update your site to include more games in future!

The solution is to name them from the beginning with something like

gamelist.html
game_cdman.html
game_pacman.html
game_scrabble.html
scrnshot_cdman.html
scrnshot_pacman.html
scrnshot_scrabble.html
tips_cdman.html
tips_pacman.html
tips_scrabble.html

3. Backup Archive
Do regular backups of all your files because you'll never know when you might change something that you want to change back later on. (or if you accidently deleted a whole paragraph in the last update) A good way is to select all the files and zip them up into a single zip file from time to time. That way they don't take up much space, they have a timestamp, and when you need a single file you could just extract it from the zipped archive.
