But what is a chapter? Is that a page on the root level?
Yeah - at least that’s what I call it (maybe it’s wrong?).
I always think of a site in these terms;
And those items stand for;
- Root-level page (mostly visible in the main menu)
- Sub-pages of every root-level page
- Page elements (DOM level)
I know this is not 100% correct, because a chapter is a page and can contains pages (which are chapters as well…).
But to keep an eye on the basic set-up I always think in these terms
So a chapter contains at least one page (the page that powers the chapter) and can contain sub-pages.
When you have 9 chapters, you will always have 9 pages.
But when 2 chapters also have sub-pages, the total amount of pages is… 9 + 2 = 11
I hope this makes sense
There was an error in the widget; the images were counted as chapters. I fixed it, but please do download the newest version.
Lol - I created my own (flat file based) CMS in the late '90’s, and I did use the same concept;
That way I could manage “complex” site with a lot of content easy; I always knew which page belonged to a certain chapter
It looks like rubbish… all iFrames and inline scripting
But it also worked with plain textfiles for the content and did have dynamic (sub-) modules.
You could also schedule posts and add comments to it, in case you were collaborating in an online team…
