Settings for SharePoint
« on: November 17, 2014, 01:06:47 PM »
Hello...

new to A1SG and this forum.  Are there any scan/create sitemap options specific to SharePoint. Have looked through the options and help but found nothing specific.
I have a SharePoint intranet site that has sub-sites under it.   When I scan the entry site the sub-sites do not show up -what does show up appears to be a bunch of landing pages.

I am trying to produce a graphical sitemap (Slickmap)  and once the map is drawn, All I see is the landing pages and no sub sites.   How can I get these to show up?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Garry

Are those pages placed on different domains by any chance? (i.e. URLs not within the "scan root"?)

Have you checked for noindex, nofollow or robots.txt issues blocking the crawler?

Hi Karma .... thanks for the reply.

>> Are those pages placed on different domains by any chance? (i.e. URLs not within the "scan root"?)<<
I'm not sure what you mean as I am not a web designer only a frustrated end user who cannot find anything hence the need for the sitemap.

The following two URLs are the main site and the sub site (SharePoint) respectively.  If I scan them separately I can get a scan of both.   If I just scan the first one, then only the first one's details show up in the scan.  I would expect to see a branch off the main site to show the sub site when the sitemap is generated.  Is this a wrong expectation?

main site:
http://teamsites/sites/ts_isdreference/EA_Portal/SitePages/Home.aspx

example of one sub site:   (there are several)  http://teamsites/sites/ts_isdreference/EA_Portal/EA_TSInfo/EAImplementation/EAImpl_InfoArch/SitePages/Home.aspx

>>Have you checked for noindex, nofollow or robots.txt issues blocking the crawler? <<
No I have not, and I do I do not know where to check this. 

Thanks Again for your help.

Cheers!
Garry

Okay

In that case the website root is:
http://teamsites/sites/ts_isdreference/EA_Portal/

And then add an additional path to the paths crawl is started from:
http://teamsites/sites/ts_isdreference/EA_Portal/SitePages/Home.aspx

See this help page:
http://www.microsystools.com/products/sitemap-generator/help/root-aliases-start-paths/

That should solve your crawl problems :)
