This chapter will explain the sitemap itself and its functions. Let’s look at some basic features first:

  • The sitemap represents the navigation structure as it will be shown on your website.
  • Each locale has its own sitemap 
  • Each sitemap has an auto generated root node.
  • Every node can have child nodes.
  • Every node can be linked with a CMS content page, a store content page, a shop content page, a filter content page, a URL content page, a file content page or a content group.
  • Content registry folders cannot be linked to sitemap nodes.
  • To create a new child-node use the ‘create’ icon new node button next to an existing node.
  • To delete a node use the delete icon delete node button next to the node you would like to delete.
  • If a sitemap node is deleted, all child nodes will be deleted too.
    Note: Caution is advised, as this cannot be made undone!
  • To remove content from a node use the ‘remove content’ icon remove content button next to that node. Please note, that the Content still remains in the content registry until it is also deleted here.
  • To toggle a sitemap node visible or invisible use the ‘toggle visibility’ button icon toggle visibility next to that sitemap node.
  • Each sitemap node can have its own theme, style and one or more sitemap tags. To apply or change them, use the edit button icon edit node next to the sitemap node you would like to edit and adjust the settings in the tab to the right according to your wishes and needs.
  • The same content can be linked to multiple sitemap nodes at the same time.
  • Sitemap nodes can be placed by drag and drop anywhere on the sitemap’s structure, with one exception: no node can be placed at the same level or above the root node.
