Before You Begin Using SiteBuilder
Congratulations on choosing Yahoo! SiteBuilder to create and update your web site! This
brief guide will help you evaluate, install, and familiarize yourself with SiteBuilder before
you get started creating your site.
Your Web Site Folder
Before you start working with SiteBuilder, it s important to understand how it works with
your computer. You ll use SiteBuilder just like any other desktop software. SiteBuilder runs
on your local computer, which means you can work with the tool even when you re not
connected to the Internet (you will need to connect only when you re ready to publish). Just
as you might open a word processing program to write a letter, you will open SiteBuilder
whenever you want to create or update pages of your site. And just as you might save
copies of your letters and other documents in folders on your hard drive, you ll save the files
that make up your web pages in a special SiteBuilder folder.
When you begin to create a web page or site with SiteBuilder s Site Creation
Wizard, we will ask you to name the folder in which your web site files will
A SiteBuilder folder
be stored, then choose a location for this site folder. The wizard will
suggest a location for you; unless you are an advanced user and need to store your site
elsewhere on your computer, we recommend choosing the default selection.
