Vbscript not displaying links

Hi!

The below listed vbscript on an ASP page is not giving me any errors, but it also is not displaying the links from our XML page using the XSL page to render it. Any specific code corrections would be greatly appreciated.

<%
      Dim NewXML, re, oXmlSrc, oXml, oNode, oXslSrc, oXsl, oXslTemplate
     
      ' If you're using an XSLTemplate and XSLProcessor object,
      '   you have to use the FreeThreaded versions of DOMDocument
      Set oXmlSrc = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument.4.0")
      Call oXmlSrc.setProperty("ServerHTTPRequest", True)            
      oXmlSrc.async = False
     
      Set oXslSrc = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument.4.0")
      Call oXslSrc.setProperty("ServerHTTPRequest", True)            
      oXslSrc.async = False
     
      Set oXslTemplate = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.XSLTemplate.4.0")

      ' If I haven't posted the form first, then load my unaltered XML.
      ' If I'm posting info to resort or edit, then build my XML from that.
     
    ' On Error Resume Next  'debugging code if table does not appear uncomment this line

            'Call oXmlSrc.loadXML (xmlResponse)      
            Call oXmlSrc.load (Server.MapPath("sitemap.xml"))
          'Response.Write "<xmp>" & oXmlSrc.xml & "</xmp>"    'debugging code
          'newXML = oXmlSrc.xml
        'Set re = new regexp
        're.pattern = " xmlns.+?>"
        'newXML = re.replace(newXML,">")
        'Call oXmlSrc.loadXML(newXML)
  if oXslsrc.load (Server.MapPath("sitemap.xsl")) then
     Set oXslTemplate.stylesheet = oXslsrc
     Set oXslProcessor = oXslTemplate.createProcessor()
     oXslProcessor.input = oXmlsrc
     Response.Write oXmlsrc
    else
       Response.Write "Could Not Retrieve SiteMap.xsl stylesheet"
end if %>

It would if you had it processed client side.  It looks like if you process it server side, then Google would index the processed page.

See if this gives you any more information:

It might be because you're loading the XML file twice.  Comment out this line:
            Call oXmlSrc.load (Server.MapPath("sitemap.xml"))

because this line
  If oXslsrc.load (Server.MapPath("sitemap.xsl")) Then

will also load it.

Also, do you get any output if you change this:
  If oXslsrc.load (Server.MapPath("sitemap.xsl")) Then

to this
  Response.Write "Loading xml...<BR>"
  If oXslsrc.load (Server.MapPath("sitemap.xsl")) Then
     Response.Write "XML loaded...<BR>"

Rob.

Rob,

I did as you suggested and it returned the following ...

Loading xml...
XML loaded...
Response object error 'ASP 0185 : 80020003'
Missing Default Property
/sitemap.asp, line 0
A default property was not found for the object.

Any ideas?
TIA

Should this line:
     Response.Write oXmlsrc

be this:
     Response.Write oXmlsrc.xml

It looks like the Response object error that you are getting is due to this:
     Response.Write oXmlsrc

and oXmlsrc is an object, so you can't output it, you need to reference one of its (string) properties.

Rob,

That fixed the error.
Now it displays the following...
Loading xml...
XML loaded...

But, no links are displayed.
Any other ideas?

Does it display any xml from the sitemap.xml?

What is the format of your xml? We might need to read the xml nodes to be able to output them.

Rob,
The XML looks fine when I look at the page using IE.

Here is the XML:
http://www.topsecurityinc.com/sitemap.xml
Here is the XSL:
http://www.topsecurityinc.com/sitemap.xsl

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

OK, I'll see if I can run some tests with it.  So do you want the entire xml to be output to the page?

Rob,

I am basically trying to make a people friendly sitemap using the XML file.

RobSampsonCommented:
Hi, isn't it is possible to point your XML file to use the XSL directly, by adding something like this:
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="sitemap.xsl"?>

And then display the xml in the browser?

Regards,

Rob.

Rob,

Wouldn't this method negate the ability of search engines being able to properly read the sitemap for indexing purposed?
