How to create a sitemap using a text file?

You can build a new sitemap by importing a text file stored on your computer. The 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)
------ Forth 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. Click on the New Project button, or open an existing project. Please note that importing a text file will overwrite your current sitemap.
  2. Click on the Import button on the toolbar.
