Generating a Sitemap
A sitemap can be generated for use with Google's indexing and more. The sitemap will generate an XML file, which can then be reused to create a site index, submitted to Google, or used in another fashion as determined by the site's designers and administrators.
A Level 10 administrator can generate a sitemap when ready. Regenerating a sitemap will overwrite an existing sitemap. The administrator should ensure that any pages that should not be included in the indexing, such as references to template and navigation files, be excluded from the sitemap generation prior to using the Export Sitemap function.
A Level 10 administrator can generate a sitemap.
- Navigate to Setup > Sites.
- Under Export, click on the "Generate Sitemap" icon.
- Click "OK" on the warning that pops up if a new sitemap should be generated.
- Click on the link in the success message to see the generated sitemap XML file.
The provided URL can then be submitted to Google, or used on the website.
It is possible for a Level 10 administrator to choose certain files, entire directories, and Assets that should be excluded from the sitemap creation.
Page Access Example
If all files within a directory should be excluded, use the recursive option and apply
the setting to "This folder and all existing items within." Make sure to check both
boxes that show up; one selecting that the option be included in the recursive selection,
and the other selecting to exclude the directories and pages.
