What is a sitemap?

Since a sitemap regroups all the collection of article links in a website, we can then create a unique page with a script to pull up all these article links. By doing this, a visitor landing on this sitemap page will be able to easily navigate all the different articles on your site.

Sitemap page for Blogger

Blogger by default does not have a built-in sitemap page. So, one can only take advantage of some scripts that will pull all different post and group them into their various labels then create a static page and embed the sitemap code.

Setting up a stylish sitemap page for your Blogger blog or website

  • To begin, create a new page from your Blogger dashboard. Note not a post!. To do this, simply head to the pages tab and then click on "New page" at the top-left corner.

sitemap #1 code demo

In the code above, change the last script source URL part "YOUR_Blogger_Site_URL" to that of your site URL. For example, in my case, it will be www.bloggercustomiz.com.

Code #2:



<div id='sitemaps' class='sitemaps'>
  <div class='loading'>Loading....</div>
</div>
<script>/*<![CDATA[*/
/* Blogger Sitemap Dropdown */
var toc_config = {containerId:'sitemaps', showNew:0, sortAlphabetically:{thePanel:true, theList:true}, activePanel:1, slideSpeed:{down:400, up:400}, slideEasing:{down: null, up: null}, slideCallback:{down:function(){}, up:function(){}}, clickCallback:function(){}, jsonCallback:'sitemaps',delayLoading: 0};
window.onload = function(){

}
/*]]>*/</script>

For the second sitemap code, change the URL www.bloggercustomiz.com to that of your blog.

Note: 

You sitemap page won't look exactly like the one we have here, but it should have all your site's post listed as you see on the demo page.

To make your sitemap page looks more stunning you can add further customisations. Tweaking the CSS and changing the colour.

As for options like hiding the sidebar, page title and adding your own custom title, you will need some Blogger template editing skills and a mastery of the Blogger conditional tags.
