    Creating Site Maps

    I am trying to create a site map, or table of contents on my web page. I have inserted the TOC component and tried to follow the help file directions. All I get is three hyperlinks that say "Title of a Page" What I thought would happen is that the TOC would be created for me. Even if it doesn't, I should be able to edit the links to point to my pages. When I go to preview and click on one of the links it takes me to the web folder and shows a list of files. I am using Navigation, but want to list some pages that are not included in the Navigation bar. What am I not doing?

    Thanks

    Make sure that your server is running FrontPage server extentions.

    <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22>Okay, I have figured it out. After creating the TOC, save the page. Go back to your index page, (I made my TOC on a separate page), Select preview, from preview, click on the link to the TOC page, and lo and behold, there is the index. This may be more convoluted than necessary, but it's what I did to make it work.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Re: Creating Site Maps

    Just a background explanation here
    The TOC component has to be processed by the server (which is why previous posts asked about server extensions).
    Think of it this way. When you go to the page with the TOC component on it, the TOC component(a script actually) is sent to:

    1)Look at the website and create a list of the pages on the site.
    2)Format that list.
    3)Put the results on the page which is displayed to the you the viewer.

    When you are working in FP in the normal view, the script is not triggered to run. When you followed the series of actions:
    "Select preview, from preview, click on the link to the TOC page, and lo and behold, there is the index"
    That told the script to run and you saw the results.
    Not complicated at all really.
