Website Naming Conventions


In order to streamline our processes and make everything as efficient as possible it's very important that we use effective communication. This page will attempt to set up standards as far as naming conventions are concerned for our site builds and processes and will try to cover all of the elements of a web page and our process. This should hopefully do away with or minimize discrepancies in our communications about these things. For example, what might be a button to one person might be a link to another. This may not seem to be of much importance but, when communicating it in a task without a visual aide, it will help to have a standard in place so we are all on the same page.
