'Wireframes' is the name for a simple technique to streamline the development. The technique basically assumes that your webpages are built from rectangles and it helps to create order in the development chaos.

A basic one looks like this:

Most geekLog pages do have this look-and-feel and the graphic is obvious and simple.

First thing is to drill down the BODY rectangle, which comes with a more precise naming of HEADER and FOOTER:

This is still a simple layout, but note that the position of the rectangles are already defined, though relative to each other.

Now add some functionality and fix their positions:

At this very moment the need for a clean design is seen. And some rectangles need specifications for width and height.

Window size is something to think about too.

All these rectangles can be given a proper name and used in communication in the development team.

Without such a wireframe comment on the content, hints etc. will loose its meaning.
