Content/Structure Questions

SInce the new templates use a top level navigation, many sites will need to be reorganized into a new navigation. This is a perfect time to remove outdated or unnecessary information and create a clean, effective site.

Sites generally should be only three levels of navigation deep, although there are exceptions (see the Navigation section of the Web Support site).

A recommended way to approach the structure is to write down each content topic on a sticky note and organize the notes into categories with the help of staff members who work closely with your audience.  Those categories become your top level navigation with deeper content as drop down links and third level navigation on the page itself.
