I'm fairly new to sitemaps, to make the web site SEO friendly should I go for Web.Sitemap file created using visual studio or the sitemap schema defined here" www.sitemaps.org".

Custom Control Design-Time SiteMap Provider Error


Greetings - I was referred here by MSDN forums hope this is the right place -  

I have a custom control (:WebControl) that renders web.sitemap in a specific way. While it runs error free and produces the expected result, at Design-Time it complains

Error Creating Control - MyControl  The provider 'AspNetXmlSiteMapProvider' specified for the defaultProvider does not exist in the providers collection.

I have discovered that the error is cause by this line of code:

string div = string.Format("<div class='{0}' id='{1}'>{2}</div>", this.CssClass, this.ID.ToString(), EnumerateNodesRecursive(SiteMap.RootNode, level));

or more specifically, by the reference to SiteMap.RootNode - I am not clear what is missing thoough because I have configured the SiteMapProvider in web.config as this:

        <add name="AspNetXmlSiteMapProvider" 
             type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"

Linq Save to ror.xml or other sitemap.xml


Hi there, 

I'm trying to make a script for a site, that updates the sitemaps in the background.

I didn't create this site, and someone before me added in the ror.xml and sitemap.xml and urllist.txt files.

I want to update these all at the same time. If the url is not in there already of course...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:ror="http://rorweb.com/0.1/" >
  <title>ROR Sitemap for http://www.envirospec.co.nz/</title>

Trying to get to a page via an email link. Could the sitemap be stopping this?


I had this working.  I would email a link to a page (i.e. Work.aspx), and using the code below, the user would be routed to the login page and then sent  to Work.aspx after logging in.

But since I added a site map this isn't working.  I always go directly to my home page.  If I set Work.aspx as my start page in VS it works, but not if I click a link in the email.

Any thoughts?

 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


        if (!Page.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated)

            Response.Redirect("~/Login.aspx" + "?ReturnUrl=~/Work.aspx");


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!Page.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated)

Sitemap issue

Hello, This question pertains to the web.sitemap and the sitemap control. I have the following entry in the web.sitemap:<siteMapNode url="Default.aspx" title="Home" description=""> <siteMapNode url="" title="Articles" description=""> <siteMapNode url="~/TBSArticles/ShowCategories.aspx" title="Categories" description="" /> <siteMapNode url="~/TBSArticles/ProductShowCase.aspx" title="Product Showcase" description="" /> <siteMapNode url="~/TBSArticles/ProductReview.aspx" title="Product Review" description="" /> </siteMapNode> </siteMapNode> </siteMap> The Home and Article texts show as separate tabs on the menu control. Under Article, "Categories", "Product Showcase" and  "Product Review" show as drop down menus. When I click on "Categories" the site map control shows "Home -> Article -> Categories", and the ShowCategories.aspx page is displayed on the browser . The ShowCategories.aspx page has several links. When any one is clicked it it leads to the BrowseArticles.aspx page with an unique querystring value. The problem is that at this stage, the sitemap becomes blank an

URL routing with a dynamic .sitemap file

Hi,I've implemented URL routing now I've upgraded to .NET 4 following http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2009/10/13/url-routing-with-asp-net-4-web-forms-vs-2010-and-net-4-0-series.aspx.The only problem I've encountered is with the .sitemap file. If I put, for example: <siteMapNode url="~/recipes/Starters" title="Browse Starters"> it renders correctly. However, I need to do something like this: <siteMapNode url="~/recipes/{category}" title="Browse {category}"> - i.e. dynamically giving a titleOr, I'd settle for something like this: <siteMapNode url="~/recipes/*" title="Browse Recipes"> - i.e. covering all recipe pages Has anyone found a nice solution to this?

Access SiteMap Provider

Hi I was trying to implement an access sitemap provider by taking this code: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178434.aspx Can one use this example without any further codings? In fact my testwebapp didn't work and I don't know now, if the code needs to be modified since I want to have the same kind of a provider as I have with the standard provider (xml file). Thanks for your advice.If you have a link with a fully functional access sitemap provider it would be great too. Patrick

Sitemap disappears almost daily after moving to .NET 4.0

We have the following problematic behaviour on our production server (.NET 4.0, Windows Server 2003, IIS 6.0): Almost every morning, the users will complain that the sitemap used for navigating has disappeared. We use the standard SiteMapPath control, with a static XML file that contains the site structure. Reycling the application pool resolves the problem.I was unable to find any obviously related error messages in the event logs. The sitemap did not disappear when we used .NET 3.5, now we use .NET 4.0. The users most often access reports using ReportViewer 2010 in local mode (loading rdlc files)As of now,we are unable to reproduce the behaviour on our test system, but since we don't have dedicated test users, the test server is idle most of the time. If it has to do with recycling the app pool, maybe it only happens under load, I don't know.Can anyone suggest an approach on how to get to the source of the problem? Reverting to 3.5 would take a lot of effort since we already depend on 4.0 in some places.
