Only Menu Items are showed

Postby dmitry.matora » Thu Aug 27, 2009 10:42 pm

No matter what i do, only menu Items are showed in site map. From what i understand, content plugin for xmap should expand sections and categories and to me that means show articles not mentioned in menu. But it does not. What could be wrong and what can i do about it?

First of all, your conclusions are right! Please...

- check if latest version installed
- check menu, if you setup category or section layouts
- check xmap component configuration: the content plugin should be installed AND activated by default. Be sure it has a green check mark. Hit the options button for the content plugin. Check the first two parameters, if they read "expand..." No matter what is displayed... you could change and save the options, two make sure the settings are saved. (see attached screenshot)


Go to SiteMap in frontend and reload the page... does it show something at all? Do you see the expanded category or section-menu-items?

If yes, the xmap LINK plugin should do so as well.

Well, later i realized that to show articles from category xmap needs menu item pointing to category blog layout. I now use hidden menu to build sitemap manually

glad it worked out for you :D
And yes... Xmap creates the sitemap out of MENUS AND THEIR ITEMS, so you will need them :ugeek: ;)
