2. Double Check Your Design

Check and double-check your site design! Send the preview link (you can generate a site preview link by clicking the ďonline previewĒ button in the upper right corner of the Showit application) to friends and have them test the site out. Click on all of your links and try scaling your browser to different sizes to see how the site looks in various situations.
