Gaining popularity as a method of convenient navigation through a website, the site map basically facilitates the list of links to HTML files in the web platform.
There is a visual source safe that includes the creation of site map commands on the web menu to simplify the site map creation, however in order to access this tool one would need to have the write access to use the command on call.
Each time the create site map is called upon, a totally new site map file is created, thus there is a need to save the copy of the particular file to another location where it can be retrieved later. The following are some simple steps to creating a site map:
Using the visual source safe explorer the individual would be able to open a web project to commence the exercise.
When the web menu is clearly visible, the next step would be to click on the create site map icon. In doing so other follow up instructions would have to be completed in order to work further on into the exercise.
Here in the create site map for <specified name>dialog box, one would have to use the “To” box to specify the file that will contain the site map eventually. The other alternative would be to click on the browse to locate the file needed for use.
Then the individual would proceed to select the check in to visual source safe check box and when this has been completed then the ok icon should be clicked upon.
Upon completion of clicking on the ok box the specified file is the created and checked into the data base.
For some there may be a need to further navigate the file and customize it, which can also be done quite easily.
