Structuring Directories

  1. Plug in your flash drive and browse to it via windows explorer
  2. Create a Folder Named Personal Website. All of your files related to website must be in this folder!
  3. Open the Personal Website folder you created and inside it we are going to create a folder named assets.
  4. Inside the assets folder we are going to create the following folders
    • images – all images in your site should be in this folder
    • style – all of your Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) should be in this folder
    • scripts – any Javascript files we use
    • resources – Any files related to the site but are not uploaded
