Wordpress - Visualize Google XML Sitemap?

On my Wordpress site, I'm using the Google XML Sitemap plugin for SEO purposes. If you are not familar with it, you can find some details here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/

I know the plugin creates an XML file that collects the sitemap and uses it in the background for search engines. However, I was wondering if its possible to create a sitemap that I can put on a page or a post on my site. I want the sitemap to include all pages, subpages, categories, etc (pretty much everything besides actual posts).

I don't know if there is something I can do with the Google XML Sitemap to create a page that includes a sitemap that users can interact with or if I should maybe try an alternative plugin and leave the Google plugin specifically for SEO.

I've done a bunch of searching and any time I search for "sitemap", I am only finding results related to SEO. If anyone has any suggestions on how I can create a "visual" (and preferably dynamic) sitemap in a Wordpress site, I would really appreciate the help. Thanks.

I'm using this plugin too but you can't make sitemap page with this. Maybe this plugin fits your need http://www.dagondesign.com/articles/sitemap-generator-plugin-for-wordpress/ and a demo http://www.dagondesign.com/sitemap/
Good luck

Thanks for the reply. I think I had seen the Dagon Design Sitemap Generator plugin during my search. I guess I forgot to mention that I'm using Wordpress 2.7.1. The plugin is only compatible up to 2.6 so I'm a little reluctant to install it.

But it looks like it does essentially what I'm looking for. If anyone knows of any other plugin similar to it but is compatible with Wordpress 2.7, it would really be helpful.

The website of Dagon says 2.7+ (and higher)  it should work. I can try it for you on my on website.

Sorry about that. I was looking at the plugin through the Wordpress Plugin directory: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sitemap-generator/

I guess it hasn't been updated there. I'll give it a try on my site. Thanks for the help!

I gave the plugin a try and it seems to work well! The only issue is that I am using another plugin called qTranslate which allows for bilingual content on my site. Unfortunately, the sitemap plugin doesn't seem to be compatiable with it (it displays both languages on one page) which is obviously another issue on its own.

Thanks for the help anyway!
