Is there a way to make DWMX create a site map?  Not one a picture but an actual linked  up site map.  My problem is that all my pages are linked useing a JS menu.  Obviously this wont get crawled by SEs.  Id like to tell DW to make a site map with links to every page in my local root folder.  Is this possible?  I would excpect that DW has all the info it needs to create a page like this because it caches all the site info?

Thanks

Not that I know of. And if you're using a javascript menu, I doubt anything is going to be able to create what you want.

IMHO site maps are only useful for very small sites. Any site of any size has so many connections back and forth that a site map would be impossibly complex (and useless).

Yeah what I really want is for DW to find every page in my local root directory with .htm, .html, .php extensions and put them on a page as links.  This is not for surfers its just so the SEs will crawl.  I dont want DW to actually crawl my site, like it does with site map view.  

Impossible dream?  I guess I just have to hadnd create a site map. :(

I don't think DW will do that, but you don't have to go home sad ;)

If all you want is a simple page with links to every .htm .html pages in your site, there are applications that will do that for you.
