    Basically my professor is worthless and didn't explain to us how to use UML. I understand that there's nine different types of UML Diagrams that I can use, but I was only told to use UML for my 'design details'. Yep, that's all the instruction I was given. I googled UML and I didn't get much help as to how it deals with the design part of the website. Would design details just be the layout of the website or would that include the actual coding backend as well?

    This is my site:

    I'm building a simple e-commerce website with a template I found for my assignment.

    An example as how I would go about doing this would be much appreciated.

    I hope I posted this in the right section. :hs:

    I would think you'll be concerned with functionality, and use sequence diagrams for logging it, a cart etc, not use it for designing CSS etc.

    Use case diagrams might also be helpful....

    I would also focus more on the usability/flow of action vs trying to model the code via UML. I don't think I've ever seen someone really model website code (well, non-dynamic application stuff anyways) via UML.
