Knowledge Base Article: kb01
Site Map Pro can create an offline site map to be published via CD-ROM, DVD or other similar media.
This can be useful when publishing media that runs from the CD or DVD.
Creating the offline site map
Run the application as normal.
At step 1 you choose the mapping method.
- If your pages are linked normally using
<a href> tags, then choose the "map a whole website" option.
- If you have a list of HTML file in a folder then choose the "select individual pages to map" option.
Then use the "Add Many Files" button to add all your files to the mapping queue.
Go through the normal process of creating the sitemap using your preferred options.
It is important to use relative links when creating an offline site map.
This means that your site map will work when placed on the CD/DVD.
If you are used the "Add Many Files" option then absolute links will have been created.
You are given the option to convert these to relative. Do this and remove the drive letter from the URLs.
The URLS will be converted like this:
Publish the sitemap on the CD-ROM/DVD
A single HTML file will have been created.
Place this sitemap.html on the CD or DVD to be published.
It should be placed in the same folder as the homepage HTML file.
