Curious, does a web.sitemap file have be to called web.sitemap or can you specify it with a different name if you want?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you need help from visual studio, and clarity in navigation through your project then leave these extensions.

Since visual studio allows you to change such extension, then I can see why you cant do that.

If you do, you loose the icon appearance of the files in the solution explorer.

If you can change the name of web.sitemap file, where in the markup do you reference the new name?
Looks like, changing the name is just a convenience for you in solution explorer.
The contents of the file is the same regardless of the name extension.

In general a software uses its own references to objects and makes visible naming an option to users.

You can have multiple .sitemaps and you have can your own names!


You can configure the same in web.config file!
