Best Practice: Separate Directories
I've just watched http://www.affilorama.com/site-building ... usekeeping
and it is a useful video on good housekeeping practices for keeping your website directories in order. I have a question though.
The advice is to "Keep your images in an images directory, your CSS in a CSS directory, your articles in an appropriately named directory, and so on"
My question is this:
If I affect these changes by creating the relevant directories in filezilla will WP auto detect them when I work in WP or will I have to upload all my posts, images and CSS files via the FTP platform?
If the latter is the case then I can see myself getting in all kinds of trouble. Images and posts fine but even the term upload css file is frightening to me. If I do upload a css file via ftp for example will WP recognize it a implement those changes automatically? The Images I guess will go into the WP media library, the posts into the 'all posts' section (?) and then it just gets confusing.
Advice is welcome. I'd like to start implementing this straight off the bat with my new website.
