Use Anchor Text instead of URL
« on: July 14, 2011, 12:47:35 AM »
Hi There,

I need to create a sitemap that uses the Anchor text, or Page Title as the link in the sitemap, rather than displaying the URL. Is this possible?

Cheers,
Adam

Hello,

html sitemap uses the <title> tag of the page for all links (if it's available).

Excellent,

Thats just what I need. However its not pulling the Title tag to use, its using the string for that particular page:

[external links are visible to admins only]

Is this because we have set "properties/?id=" to "Do not parse URLs:"

Cheers,
Adam

Yes, entries listed in "do not parse" are not fetched from server for faster crawling, hence no title is retrieved.
