I am trying to use multiple sitemaps.  I tried adding the following to the web.config file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/.NetConfiguration/v2.0">
<appSettings>
<add key="ConnectionString" value="Password=xxxxx;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=username;Initial Catalog=DBName;Data Source=SERVERNAME" />
</appSettings>
<system.web>
<siteMap defaultProvider="XmlSiteMapProvider">
<providers>
<add name="TopNavigationBar" type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider" siteMapFile="~/NavigationMenus/TopNavigationBar.sitemap" />
<add name="LeftNavigationBar"type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider" siteMapFile="~/NavigationMenus/LeftNavigationBar.sitemap" />
</providers>
</siteMap>
<compilation debug="true"/>
<authentication mode="Windows"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>

But, I recieved the following error: the provider 'XmlSiteMapProvider' specified for the defaultProvider does not exist in the providers collection.

So, the default web.sitemap file in my root directory is no longer recognized.

Where did I go wrong?

Here is a good article describing multiple SiteMaps:

Examining ASP.NET 2.0's Site Navigation - Part 1
http://aspnet.4guysfromrolla.com/articles/111605-1.aspx

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<siteMap xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/AspNet/SiteMap-File-1.0">
  <siteMapNode attributes>
    <siteMapNode attributes>
      <siteMapNode attributes>
      ...
    </siteMapNode>
    <siteMapNode attributes />
    ...    
    <siteMapNode attributes />
  </siteMapNode>
</siteMap>

Bob,
Thanks for replying to my post.

I was just trying to figure out the cause of the error when adding the code to the web.config file to enable the use of more than one sitemap file.

If I remove the code, the app runs.

I want to use more than one sitemap file and the articles details how to implement multiple site maps by adding the additional providers in the web.config file.

When I added the code, I received the error.  Did I miss something?  Is there a syntax error?

I figured it out....

I needed to change:

<siteMap defaultProvider="XmlSiteMapProvider">

to

<siteMap defaultProvider="AspNetXmlSiteMapProvider">

Darn it, I was looking at, and looking at, and I couldn't see that (I hate when that happens!)
