SiteMap 2.00 (Now called SiteMap Plus!)

Version 2.00

SiteMap 2.0 (!)

The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated -- Mark Twain
Read the entire release notes are there is a lot here!
  • Free for all SiteMap users!
  • New Name (SiteMap Plus)
  • 10.5+ required (Leopard or Snow Leopard)
  • Theme support -- can improve the SiteMap look and is critical for custom columns -- Create your own custom themes by putting a file called 'xx_sm.css' in the ~application support/RapidWeaver/SiteMap directory (where xx is your theme name)
  • Multi File -- SiteMap can now handle xml files across multiple RW projects -- Go to settings -> SiteMap and enable "Multi RapidWeaver File SiteMaps" and then select the other projects you want to include -- you need to do this for all of your RW SiteMaps in order to get this to work.
  • Custom Columns. A fourth output format that let's you define 'custom columns' that go into your SiteMap -- great for 'footer' type SiteMaps
  • Automatic robots.txt -- you can have SiteMap automate the creation of a robots.txt file (the robots.txt simply points to your SiteMap -- if you have a custom one leave this option off to avoid overwriting it)
  • Insert in footer -- You can now have SiteMap automatically insert it self in the footer of pages (great for custom columns)
  • Visual Ping -- Now the results of a 'ping' are shown for google/bing/yahoo (yahoo fails a lot -- complain to them, not me!)
  • Custom Subpages -- Plugins that have custom sub pages can now be included in the SiteMap -- FaqMaker + blog do this but I'm not sure who else does (if a plugin supports it the 'show subpages' checkbox in site organization will be enabled -- selecting this shows the subpages you can include)
  • Keyword support -- You can now view or edit keywords in the 'site organization' view
  • Hide able Columns -- You can now resize,move and hide columns in the table views (Site Organization & Search Engines)_
  • "Search Engine" tab now shows the Full URL to each page - if it detects a problem for google indexing it will mark it red
  • Footer -- Now you can have both a 'header' and 'footer' text for SiteMaps
  • "New style" text views with more modern controls for text views
  • Many new columns added to 'site organization' tab
  • In alphabet view you can now customize how the titles look
  • Many of the controls have moved to setup panel


  • Included in the SiteMap DMG
  • Interested in feedback so please provide but I can't provide the same level of support as the plugin as it's still Beta
  • View your web stats as you view your project in a very RapidWeaver friendly manner!
  • Lots of intersting reports available
  • Awesome Icon by Volker Schmidt
