Coldfusion dynamic site map

Is there a way to make a dynamic site map that consists of all the pages in my website? The pages themselves are not stored in a database. I want to display th epage title and a link to that page.

There is no way to just do this unless you have some logic in place preparing for this.

What I mean is you could do a combination of cfdirectory and cfif statements.
Basicly you'd "crawl" the top level directory making links to files then crawling subdirectories again making links again to files in each directory with a heading of the directory the files are in.

But the problem is (I don't know how you develop but in my case) most of the files found are not to be accessed directly.
so this is where my opening statement "some logic is place" has meaning.
like if you have a folder named "includes" where you have all your includes, you could then do
<cfif name neq "includes"> in your cfdirectory output. This would all get fairly complex but if you really wanted to do it.

To display the page title - you'd have to read the file with cffile and parse looking for <title> as start position and </title> as end position.

If you created a cfschedule to spider your site on a regular basis it would probably do sort of what you want.
