Site Map Question

  Asked By: Nagendra    Date: Nov 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1000

I've got a few sub-sites that I'd like to show up in the Site Map.

How do I do it?

(All of the sites one level below the SiteDirectory show-up without
issue... Is there a place I can specify other sites that I want to show
up in the Site Map?)

I'm not sure what you mean by Site Map, so I may be totally off in left

If you are referring to the Quick Launch navigation menu, then here is a
manual way to add what you want.

Go to Site Settings -> Quick Launch. Click New Link, add the URL and
description (how you want it to appear in the menu) and select Sites from
the Heading drop-down box. You can also reorder the links here.

This assumes that you have Quick Launch enabled already.

Alternately, you could take a third-party web part approach.

The site  Map can be found as one of the tabs in the Site Directory site of a
Collaboration portal. Basically it's a Web part that can be modified by editing
the settings of the web part properties. Simply go to the page that displays
your site map  and then from Site Actions choose Edit page. From there you can
select to modify shared web part properties for the Site Map web part. I don't
have access to one right now, but in the properties settings for the web part
you should find a setting for Levels to display (or some such). Give a look and
modify this to display how many levels you want to see.

Got it. I need to spend more time in MOSS, as virtually all of my experience
is with WSS.

Not a problem. I have very little experience in WSS so maybe we balance out?

Unfortunately, I don't see an obvious setting that will allow you to
place only specific second level sites  on the site  map.

If you tell it to go a level  deeper, then I get all of the document
libraries on the sites as well as the sub-sites.

What I'd like to have happen is just add an occasional site to the Site
Map as if it were 1 level below the /SiteDirectory.

Is that possible without putting the Collaboration sites navigationally
off the /SiteDirectory? (as in /SiteDirectory/<site>)

There is no way that I know of to skip a level  in the SiteMap. You can tell it
how deep to drill, but it will show  you everything down to that level.

On the other hand, I do think it security trims what it shows the user. So if
users don't have access to the site  they won't see it in the site map.

Nope, I'm referring to the site  Map page [Table of Contents WebPart]...

When you create a default MOSS installation for collaboration, you get a
bunch of out of the box stuff:

- Main page

- Site Directory

- News

- etc...

Under the Site Directory is something called a Site Map. (Main page ->
Sites -> Site Map [Tab])

The Site Map is located under the Site Directory, and is one of two TAB
views: Categories or Site Map

What I'm trying to do is add two sites  that are NOT at the
http://<server>/SiteDirectory/<site> level  to show  up on the Site Map.

[The sites are at the http://<server>/SiteDirectory/<site>/<sub-site>
level, which do not show up on the Site Map via the Table of Contents

So may real question  should have been: How do I get only certain
http://<server>/SiteDirectory/<site>/<sub-sites> level sites to show up
in the default Table of Contents WebPart?

Of course, I've added these sub-sites  to the Site List, but due to their
level they don't show up. The beauty of the Site Map is that it only
shows users what they have access to... unlike the actual directory.
