Wed Feb 21, 2007 · 111 words

The sitemap generation process may seem a little daunting at first but it's actually quite simple, even when you're just using RapidWeaver. All you have to do is download their Sitemap Generator script. Then make a local export of your RW site (ie ~/Sites/ The sitemap generator has 3 modes of operation, we're interested in having it generate the map based on the directory structure, so config.xml would be:

<site base_url="" store_into="/Users/filipp/sitemap.xml.gz" verbose="1">

  <directory path="/Users/filipp/Sites/" url="" default_file="index.html" />


Then just run and copy the resultant sitemap.xml.gz to your hosting site's root directory. The whole idea here is to match your RW export with your site's root on the server.
