After you’ve spent some time becoming familiar with the Muse work environment, the next step is to create a new website from scratch. Thankfully, by utilizing the sitemap features available in Plan Mode, creating and planning a new website has never been easier.
With this chapter, you’ll learn how to use the New Site dialog box to specify the page size for your new site, as well as the placement of margin and column guides and the amount of padding to leave between the pages and the edges of the browser. After you create a new site document, you’ll learn how to add, rearrange, and delete pages—all by working with the sitemap page thumbnails in Plan Mode.
This chapter also shows you how to create and apply master pages. By utilizing master pages, you can ensure that any repeating page elements, such as nav bars and footers, maintain their position throughout your site. This is achieved by placing the repeating elements on a master page, and then applying the master page to site pages.
Additionally, you’ll learn how to fill the browser with a background color or image and set objects to display at 100% browser width. The final sections of the chapter explain how to save and close your website projects.
