Area in Controllers #top
For creating an area you need to create a sub-folder in controllers folder. If you need to divide your project for admin backend you need to follow the steps below.
- Create a sub-folder in 'Controller' folder.
- Your folder name must contain the Area suffix

Area in Views #top
It is not necessary to create a sub-view folder for every area but you can create folders under 'View' path. By this way you can divide the views and controllers for smaller units.
Redirect to Area #top
Redirecting to controllers in areas you need to use the following method; Assume that you need to redirect your user to admin panel's login page. Create a tag and in href attribute print the url by this method:
/** OTHER CODES **/ <a href=" <?= Ness\Url::RedirectToArea("areaName", "ControllerName", "ActionName", "optianl-Parameters for function"); ?>"> Link Name < /a> < a href=" <?= Ness\Url::RedirectToArea("admin", "user", "login"); ?>"> Admin Login < /a> /** OTHER CODES **/ the code above will return a string to href attribute: http://sitename.com/user/login/?p=admin
