I am going to integrate the following home and about page for the first time using SharePoint designer. As far as I know there are 3 types of pages.
Page layout that comes under master page?
Site page that comes under page layout?
So if I understand correctly we first need to make master page, then page layout and then finally site page!?
Here is how my home page will look like. This is simple page with main menu, header image and text.
My about page will follow same theme as home page except it won't have header image. Here's how it will look like.
So now I want to know where do I start? I know that I need to use already existing master page like v4.master (I know minimal master page is also available). I am not concerned about the quick launch bar and ribbon at the moment.
My question is......do I need to define MAIN MENU inside master page OR page layout because it will be repeating in every page?
