How to create custom sitemap page
In my opinion, one important element in your website / blog is the sitemap. sitemap is a navigation function to allow users easily to explore at your website.
Whereas according to wikipedia, a sitemap is a list of pages of a web site accessible to crawlers or users. It cans be Either a document in any form Used as a planning tool for web design, or a web page That lists the pages on a Web site, typically organized in hierarchical fashion. This helps visitors and search engine bots find pages on the site.
Then …. How to create custom sitemap page with a sitemap, what anything to do with me …?
Yupe… of course, because the sitemap page at freecmstheme not display the last article. This is indeed trivial, but …. because I believe that “the visitor is king” and I would like “the king liked the page that“, therefore I tried to fix it. I want the user to easily browse with additional navigation.
If you want to display a list of articles in the sitemap like last archive page. you simply add the code below in sitemap.php
<div id="archive" style="padding-bottom: 12px; padding-top: 12px;"> <h3 style="border-bottom: 1px solid #ECECEC;">The Last 30 Posts</h3> <ul> <?php query_posts('showposts=30'); ?> <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <li><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>, <?php the_time('F j, Y'); ?> ( <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments', '1 Comment', '% Comments'); ?> )</li> <?php endwhile;?> </ul> </div><!--end-of-archive-->
To regulate the amount you want to display a list of articles, you simply replace “showposts=30″ with “showposts=10″ or more. Good luck.
