Sitemap

Your site map basically shows you all of the pages on your website. Here, you can 'visit' a page so you can change it, or delete it. It also offers you a two-click way to edit your page properties for SEO, changing designs, rolling back versions or setting permissions, if you have a members area. This is handy if you've got a lot of changes to make on multiple pages - it just saves you from visiting each page, and clicking the toolbar options within each page.

The sitemap also makes it easy for you to re-order your pages. For example, re-ordering your dropdown menu items. To reorder a page, simply click on the 'page icon' until the four-directional arrow cursor appears, and drag your page directly under the page you want it to appear. A horizontal line will appear - when it does, if you release your mouse button, your page will be reordered.

Your sitemap also gives you an easy way to add a page. You can either add a website page, or you could add an external link. Let's say, for example, you're on our Enterprise Package, and you'd like a link to google to appear as a dropdown menu item on your 'contact us' page. You'd simply click on the page you want to add a sub menu item off, select 'add external link', and type in the menu name, and the full URL.

With the sitemap, you've got three different tabs. The full sitemap tab simply lists all of your pages. The 'flat view' lists all of your pages not within sub menus, and the 'page search' allows you to search for pages. This is handy when you've got a massive website with hundreds of pages. There are some advanced features that we won't go into in this video, but in short, if you'd like to search for a page and you know key words of its name, type it into the 'page name' box. If you'd like to do a search within the body of the pages, type your search in the 'full page index'
