Hirearchical site map creator
This is tool for webmasters.
The point of this tool is not to create regular sitemap, to be crawled by google and other search engines but to create user friendly Hirearchical sitemap that you will put on your page. See example here . Two sitemaps of same site in different languages both automaticaly generated and maintenated with this tool.
You have to have JRE instaled in order that this would work. If not jet, get it here:JRE
The generator can't do anything, and will not do anything at this point.
Since you have, due to your SEO and general usability ideas, links scattered all around your site,linking backward and forward, you have to mark links on your page for generator that will end up in Hirearchical structure.
That is done via class property of a tag.The keyword is 'aznsitemap'. Examples:
... class="aznsitemap" ...
... class="your_existing_class aznsitemap" ...
... etc., so it is ok to put many css class names into one a tag (if you don't know that allready), and since it is highly unlikely that you have/will ever have 'aznsitemap' named style class, this will work without problems.
In case that you have header/footer/... included in each and every page, having same links repeating all ower your site, on each page, like on my site: agrozoo.net , and you don't want them all ower the tree, mark that like forinstance this:
... class="aznsitemap_home" ...
Read this as:"for tree, from home only". This means that header links are marked for sitemap generator, but generator reads them into tree only from home.jsp, home.html, ...
Css sytling is to be done by your personal imagination.
Almost done, the rest is, I presume, self explanatory. If not, this document will be updated.

In field "your site location" input only that,nothing else, that is like 'http://www.agrozoo.net'. Don't add anything at the end as it will not work.
Links that will not start with forinstance "http://www.agrozoo.net", will be automaticaly ignored. That is, links to sites otside your domain, even if without rel="nofollow", will be ignored.
Text that finaly appears in Hirearcical structure is according to this order, the first that exists: <a href="3" title="2">1(text only, not other nested elements)</a>
Original title is copyed to sitemap.
Robots.txt is irelevant for this, as you set which links to appear in tree with "aznsitemap" class, so, it is ignored.
