sqlsitemapprovider and multiple web.sitemap files

Hello

In previous web projects I have had different web.sitemap files for different menus on my page (e.g. top menu and left hand nav).

I can't see any obvious way with the sqlsitemapprovider to emulate multiple web.sitemap fiels for different menus. Is there a ways i can create separate 'menus' with the sqlsitemapprovider?

Thanks a lot

It's actually easy to create multiple sitemaps based on the menus you choose.

<configuration>

  <system.web>
    <!-- other configuration sections -->
    <siteMap defaultProvider="XmlSiteMapProvider">
     <providers>
       <add
         name="Company1SiteMap"
         type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider"
         siteMapFile="~/Company1/Company1.sitemap" />
       <add
         name="Company2SiteMap"
         type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider"
         siteMapFile="~/Company2/Company2.sitemap" />
     </providers>
    </siteMap>
  </system.web>
</configuration>

Hi

I'm using SQLSiteMapProvider which stores he sitemap in a database and not an xml file.

Also, my understanding of teh above method os that only provider is active at a time so only one menu can be seen at at a time. Is that right?

Hi

I'm wrong - you can use multiple site map providers at the same time.

However, I still would like to know if i can emulate multiple sitemaps with sqlsitemapprovider

thanks
