Purpose

to be included in all the backround docs - and written to work for versions 1.5 and 1.6

There are four aspects to designing a new Joomla! web site. These also apply to planning to make alterations to an existing site or planning for transferring a site that already exists into Joomla!

  • The content hierarchy:
    • Sections, Categories and Articles for Joomla 1.5
    • Categories, Subcategories and Articles for Joomla 2.5
  • Who you expect to use the site and what you want them to be able to do
  • The layout of the menus and the position of some functionality on the page
  • The graphical design of the whole site

These should all be based on the purpose and expected content of the site, so you do need a clear idea of what you are trying to communicate and plan accordingly. Easier said than done!
