How to create a sitemap by using text file?

You can build a new sitemap by importing a text file stored on your computer. This text file contains page levels written in the format shown below:

:: Home Page

++ Utility Page 1
++ Utility Page 2
++ Utility Page 3

Top Level Page
-- Second Level Page (Child of Top Level)
---- Third Level Page (Child of Second Level)
------ Fourth Level Page (Child of Third Level)
Top Level Page
-- Second Level Page
-- Second Level Page
---- Third Level Page 
---- Third Level Page
---- Third Level Page
-- Second Level Page
-- Second Level Page

>> Footer Page 1
>> Footer Page 2

Note: Top level pages can not have any dashes in front of their names. Any child level pages should be indented with even number of dashes: for example second level should have 2 dashes -- and third level should have 4 dashes ----. Space is required after the dashes and before the page name.

  1. Login to your dashboard.
  2. Click on the Create a New Sitemap button or open an existing project, but please note that importing a text file will overwrite your current sitemap.
  3. Click on the Import/Export button on the toolbar and select the Import tab.


  4. From the available import options select the Use a Text File radio button.


  5. Click on the Browse button to locate the text file on your local computer
  6. Paste the file content into the blank field.
  7. Click Import when completed.
