Convert Google sitemap to HTML (6 posts)

    Is it possible to somehow parse the XML file into HTML that a regular person can visit and click through?

    My current sitemap is here:

    Wow Beel. That really helps.

    I've searched, and as the post implies, I cannot find out how. Care to elaborate?

    The answer given was the appropriate response to the question asked. One may also infer from my lack of elaboration, and rightly so, that it is absolutely of no interest to me. And I guess this means the answer to your second question is, "No." ;-)

    I don't convert any of my site feeds into xhtml - they are available for others to parse and style themselves (and thus the feeds of others I do). On the off off chance anyone wants to see my sitemap feed, they will parse it themselves.

    Just wait... someone will think it worth their while to write the code and offer up a plugin to parse and display the feed (though heaven knows why).

    You can also transform xml to html using xslt. Check this out:

    i know my host (which is pretty basic) has something called sabletron or something similar which does it on the fly. I would speak of it further but I have yet to experiment with xslt stuff. Just ask your host.

    Best of luck;)

    cheers.

    I was hoping to avoid writing code, I haven't really done that for 5 years, and thought there might be an easy plugin.

    Ah well, I'll go and fire up my dev app.
