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.

  3. Click "OK" on the warning that pops up if a new sitemap should be generated.

Exclude Page

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."
