How does the sitemap work?

Understanding the sitemap is critical to understanding how your site is put together. It is divided into three navigational groups - global nav, utility nav and hidden nav - to allow you to easily put together a site based on solid architecture principles.

Homepage anywhere

Every aspect of the sitemap is re-orderable: simply click the ‘Reorder navigation’ button and shift aspects of your site around to best fit your requirements. While you are re-ordering you can also choose to set your homepage: any data added to the root of your site can act as a homepage: so you can choose to show your latest blog posts, your latest photos, or any page as a homepage.

Add something

Another important aspect of the sitemap is the ‘Add something’ button: use this to add stuff to your site, and once you’ve added something your sitemap will automatically be updated with this new content. From the sitemap you can add pages to your site, you can add content to existing sections, or you can add new sections to your site.

Edit anything

On the sitemap you can see everything: all your pages as well as all your sections (post & photo sections). This allows you to click into any content area of your site in order to easily manage your content. Bear in mind when you click into a page you only see surrounding pages in the sidebar, not the rest of the site as you are now editing pages and focus shifts to this new context.
