The Theme Designer is made up of a few different components that allow you to control how your sitemap will look. You have Layouts, Themes and Custom Color Settings.
The Sitemap Theme Designer (Enable Custom Colors) allows you to adjust many different design settings within any Sitemapper theme with an easy to use interface. Adjust the various settings within the Custom Settings area to create an awesome looking theme to match your website!
To begin customizing your theme, click the Enable Custom Settings checkbox. This will then allow you to modify the color settings. Some themes may not support certain settings based on the kind of layout selected. When an option is not available, it will be shaded out and you will not be able to modify that color.
This feature is exclusively found only with your purchase of the Sitemapper Resource Pack.
Layouts: With the release of Sitemapper 6, you now have the option for three different layouts. A layout is the way your sitemap will be formatted. The layout is different from a theme because a theme gets applied to a layout. You can choose from Horizontal, Vertical or XML only. To customize which layout you would like to use, click the Designer Icon and select the layout in the upper left corner.
- The Horizontal Layout Options: Control how this specific layout will function when embedded into a webpage. Horizontal themes are different form vertical layouts as they are embedded into existing pages and vertical ones are typically linked to. To customize these options, click the Designer Icon and then select Horizontal Layout in the upper left-hand corner. This will then enable the Horizontal Layout Options on the right hand side.
- Sitemap.xml only: This will just give you only the xml file that the search engines need for indexing your website. No theme will be generated when using this layout. Only the sitemap. xml file will be created.
- Responsive Action: By default, all horizontal themes are setup to be fully responsive. This means the sitemap will display differently depending on the device used to access your website (tablet, mobile phone, desktop) etc. We provide 2 variations of how this works. You can have the sitemap collapse down to an accordion style menu or you can have the sitemap stay in column format.
- Level 1 & 2 Pages: This setting allows you define what levels you want to appear in your sitemap. Level 1 is the folders off the root folder of your website, e.g. http://www.coffeecup. com/store and Level 2 folders are the pages found inside of those folders, e.g. http://www.coffeecup. com/store/books
- Max Level 1 Items and Max Level 2 Items: These settings go with the Level 1 & 2 Pages setting above. Here you can define how many of these you would like to include. The minimum is 1 and the maximum is 100. Who needs more than that right? ;)
