In Agility, Sitemaps allow editors to manage multiple content destinations within a single Instance. A content destination can be considered a website, application, IoT, digital signage, etc where editors can manage the pages and module components that make up the front-end of their digital solution.
What we'll cover:
An instance in Agility can have either a single Sitemap or multiple. In most cases, a Sitemap represents a Website. Sometimes called a "Page Tree", the Sitemap a blueprint of your website's architecture.
In Agility, your Sitemaps are conveniently located within the Pages section of the manager. At a glance, you can see your Sitemap(s), which pages are within the Sitemap(s), and you can tell where each page is and how it relates to other pages around it. This shows the hierarchy of the pages as they will appear on the front-end of your digital solution.
Each Sitemap can be composed with completely different pages, but utilize the same underlying architecture such as page templates, modules & content models.
You can easily choose which Locale you want to work with straight from the Sitemap using the locale toggle. Choosing a different language from this drop-down will reload all of your open items.
You can hover over each of the actions below the Locale drop-down to discover what it will do.
- The + icon is used to add new pages to your Sitemap.
- The Up and Down icons are used to move the currently selected page up or down in the Sitemap. If you are using a browser with a mouse and keyboard, you can also drag and drop a page to a different location in the Sitemap.
- The Search icon will lower a search bar down from the action bar and allow you to search for any page within the Sitemap. If more than one page is returned by the search, the results are displayed in a flat list.
There are several different combinations of icons that can show up on the Sitemap to represent the following:
The state of these pages is indicated by a bubble on the lower right corner of the icon. This can show whether an item is:
- Published with changes pending
- Not initialized in this language
All users associated within an Agility instance can access all of the content across each Sitemap, however, Permissions can be set to limit users to "read-only" on Sitemaps that are not relevant to the user.
In Agility, Sitemaps often get associated with Domains, and each channel usually has one or more domains.
For example, a Sitemap called Website might have the following domains associated with it:
When setting up a Sitemap for the first time, or adding a domain to an existing Sitemap, you'll need to map the domain(s) you'll be using to the Sitemap which can be done within the Domain Configuration section of settings in the Agility manager.
