I am trying to add my sitemap to a page in VSD. I copied all the code and placed it into the body section of the html option but when i had previewed it, it still looked like code, well I figured out that it was due to my copying code form the wrong file, the xml file, but I can't find the code for the correct one. I can't even find the html page. Can anyone please explain this to me in the simplest way possible? :) Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Hi Holly,
Find the sitemap.html page that the site mapper makes and copy the code to your html box in VSD. It should be in the same location the sitemap.xml file is. It might not be named sitemap.html if you changed the name when you saved it.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.

Hi Rolly,
The only file I can find in my sitemaps folder is the original .csm file. I don't even see the xhtml file in there. Is there a way to create a html file seperately so that I may save it and keep it?

Open your site map .csm file with site mapper and save your site map again. Remember where you save the files so you can find them.;)

To avoid possible terminology confusion, keep in mind that the "save" operation only saves the .csm file. To create and save the .xml and .html files, you must click on the "Create Sitemap" icon (OR use Tools > Create Sitemap from the menu). In the final step of the "Create Sitemap" dialogs, make note of the location where the files are saved, or make changes to file names and location as needed....

Okay, I think I finally have it! Thank you for the info on saving it for both the .xml and the .html extensions.
After I had saved it correctly, it still would not open in Mozilla but it did finally open in IE. The sitemap in VSD that I have now copied from the .html code doesn't look anything like the original saved version, but at least I'm on the right track and it can be added to my site. Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it!

I may have responded too soon. When I go to the "open" option in sitemapper there is no sign of the .html file, yet when I go to the "save as" option in sitemapper, in the very same place, same folder, etc. the file is there. Any thoughts on this?

Browse to that location with windows explorer by clicking my computer.:) Don't try to open it within the app itself.

When you use the "Open" file option, the program only looks for files of type *.csm, i.e. the "input file" for the program, if you will. That is the only file type the program will open. The .xml and .html files contain the results of the program operation, or the "output". Use Wndows Explorer to look for these files and to move them to where you need them.

Thank you for explaining this. I now understand why it seemed as if they had disappeared.I really appreciate your help.
