Generate Sitemap With Existing Text File
« on: May 28, 2011, 08:44:12 PM »
I have the unlimited version of XML sitemaps and I have created a text file with the URLs of all of my site's pages like this:

[external links are visible to admins only]
[external links are visible to admins only]
[external links are visible to admins only]

Is there a way to have the program use my current text file to generate a sitemap.xml page? I do not want to use the system to crawl since I have already created and edited my list of the pages that I want to use.

Thanks for any help!

Hello,

you can tranform your file with list of URLs to this form:
<a href="http://www.mydomain.com/page1.html">1</a>
<a href="http://www.mydomain.com/page2.html">1</a>
etc.

and use it as Starting URL.

My URL list has over 7,000 pages. I have created it in TextPad. Do you know a command to do this? Would I just enter the "1" for each URL line (as you noted) or the actual title/name of the page?

Thanks!

Hello,

"1" would be ok - it's not used by generator anyway.
