Roadmap: Setting up the site for the content author

To help content authors reach their goals, a team of developers, administrators, designers, and information architects work together behind the scenes to set up the site. Page creation is a common goal of content authors. The page templates that are included when you install the product are great for exploring site manager and for some scenarios. As content authors add content, new sections of your site might require custom pages. The roadmaps in this section group common tasks that various roles within a technical team complete to implement a design wire frame for a new landing page.

Who should use the roadmaps

Typically, a company or group consults with a design agency or design team to get an HTML prototype of the wire frame, CSS, and other design specifications when a new page template is required. From the design phase, an information architect takes the wire frame and determines what needs to be developed to turn the wire frame into an actual page template that is available from site manager. The information architect sends these design requirements to a team that develops and administers the site to implement the design.

The technical team includes a range of skill levels and focus areas. Your organization might merge these roles or have more roles than described in this section. As you review the requirements that are outlined for a sample landing page later in this section, you might relate to one or multiple tasks. Select the roadmaps that best fit your focus areas on your technical team.
