Using the Sitemap plugin in NUsites

Sitemaps are machine-readable listings of all public content in a website. Sitemaps help inform search engines of new pages on a site, and improve the site’s crawlability.

The Sitemap plugin handles generation and updating of a sitemap automatically, and use of this plugin is highly recommended for all public-facing websites. This plugin requires no configuration – it simply needs to be activated to take effect.

Activate the Sitemap Plugin

  1. Click the Plugins menu item in the left-hand dashboard menu.
  2. Use the search box in the top right corner to search for Sitemap
  3. Click the Activate button for the sitemap plugin.

  4. The plugin will now automatically handle sitemap generation and updating. An invisible link to the sitemap will be provided within the metadata for the site.
