Version 2.00
Nov 26, 2010

SiteMap 2.0 (!)

The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated -- Mark Twain
Read the entire release notes are there is a lot here!
  • Free for all SiteMap users!
  • New Name (SiteMap Plus)
  • 10.5+ required (Leopard or Snow Leopard)
  • Theme support -- can improve the SiteMap look and is critical for custom columns -- Create your own custom themes by putting a file called 'xx_sm.css' in the ~application support/RapidWeaver/SiteMap directory (where xx is your theme name)
  • Multi File -- SiteMap can now handle xml files across multiple RW projects -- Go to settings -> SiteMap and enable "Multi RapidWeaver File SiteMaps" and then select the other projects you want to include -- you need to do this for all of your RW SiteMaps in order to get this to work.
  • Custom Columns. A fourth output format that let's you define 'custom columns' that go into your SiteMap -- great for 'footer' type SiteMaps
  • Automatic robots.txt -- you can have SiteMap automate the creation of a robots.txt file (the robots.txt simply points to your SiteMap -- if you have a custom one leave this option off to avoid overwriting it)
  • Insert in footer -- You can now have SiteMap automatically insert it self in the footer of pages (great for custom columns)
  • Visual Ping -- Now the results of a 'ping' are shown for google/bing/yahoo (yahoo fails a lot -- complain to them, not me!)
  • Custom Subpages -- Plugins that have custom sub pages can now be included in the SiteMap -- FaqMaker + blog do this but I'm not sure who else does (if a plugin supports it the 'show subpages' checkbox in site organization will be enabled -- selecting this shows the subpages you can include)
  • Keyword support -- You can now view or edit keywords in the 'site organization' view
  • Hide able Columns -- You can now resize,move and hide columns in the table views (Site Organization & Search Engines)_
  • "Search Engine" tab now shows the Full URL to each page - if it detects a problem for google indexing it will mark it red
  • Footer -- Now you can have both a 'header' and 'footer' text for SiteMaps
  • "New style" text views with more modern controls for text views
  • Many new columns added to 'site organization' tab
  • In alphabet view you can now customize how the titles look
  • Many of the controls have moved to setup panel


  • Included in the SiteMap DMG
  • Interested in feedback so please provide but I can't provide the same level of support as the plugin as it's still Beta
  • View your web stats as you view your project in a very RapidWeaver friendly manner!
  • Lots of intersting reports available

October 6, 2008
  • Fixed a problem with Unicode in two column mode.

Version 1.68
October 5, 2008

  • Fixed a problem where hidden pages would still sometimes emit <ul> tags which can put a lot of blank space.
  • Cleaned up the UI a bit.
  • Removed the yahoo 'urllist.txt' feature -- Yahoo now uses sitemap.xml.
  • Removed the 'setup' button, you now get to the options like every other plugin (shift-cmd-i).

Version 1.55u

Version 1.54u
Nov 29, 2007

  • Fixed a potential problem where Sitemap would hang up.

Version 1.52u
August 17, 2007
  • Sitemap can now (optionally) put the sitemap.xml file in the 'root' directory of the web page. This is usually the desired behaviour and has long been requested so I'm REALLY glad it now does it. By default old RW3 files will load with it 'off' but you can enable it by going to settings -> sitemap and enabling the option.

  • Fixed a problem with RW3.6 where category sorting wasn't happening.

Version 1.50u

  • Improved Robustness: If a blog post had an invalid category (which seems to happen sometimes), Sitemap now handles it gracefully.

  • Blog Archives should now be working in both RW 3.6 and RW 3.5

Note: This version should work well in RW3.5 and RW3.6 -- Having said that the number of people to test it was somewhat limited for the obvious reason so please report any problems you see (even if they seem small)

Version 1.37u
May 22, 2007

Version 1.32u
March 5, 2007
  • Fully RapidBlog compatible. Posts show up in all 3 views and are properly categorized in category view (Archive's are still not supported in RapidBlog due to differences in how archives are handled)

  • Disable Search feature that was missing from 1.30U is back.... There is a new option for controlling of ROBOTS metatag -- You can now have the disable search either mark it as NONE or ignore it.

    • It was always sorting categories (even if you asked it not to)

* Alphabetization now properly handles non-ascii chars. It will downgrade words like Årsstämman to Arsstamman so it shows up with 'A'
