Newbie question on Site Map Creation

Apr 23, 2012 3:53 PM

Does Dreamweaver has a feature that can automatically create a sitemap?  I heard that it is better to use XML to create a site map to help SEO ranking?  Any reference you can refer is a big help.

Thank you in advance.

    If you don't fancy writing one yourself, you could try to generate one for you.


    As far as I am aware, Dreamweaver has no functionality to create sitemaps.

    Dreamweaver had a visual site map function for many years. May not be what you're looking for though.


    It was disabled in CS4 (not sure why).


    You can re-enable the Site Map following instructions from this thread:




    1. Go to your user folder > Library > Preferences 2. Open “Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 Prefs” in a Texteditor 3. Search for sitemap 4. Replace FALSE with TRUE 5. Save the file, restart DW





    1. Click on start
    2. Select Run
    3. Type regedit and click ok

       -> the registry opens now

    1. Select HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Adobe > Dreamweaver CS4 > Feature Management 5. In the right part of the window double click on Site map 6. Set Site map to True

        -> When you restart DW the site map is enabled again




    The feature is no longer supported by Dreamweaver. Use with care at your own risk.

    Try this Free Dreamweaver (exchange) extension called Ordinary Site Map.

    Once the extension is added (installed thru Extension Manager) it will generate a site map html page page with sitewide html doc file names and links in CSS formatting.



    It is simple to use and works with Dreamweaver CS5.5


    You may want to change the doc file names to each specific page summary name. Ex. "index.htm" to "Home Page", etc. But not much more work is needed.

    *Also you may have to do a "find and replace" in the document to change the source code ":" to "/" for the links to work after putting the page to the server.
