How to Create a Visual Sitemap in WordPress


Hey guys, welcome to WPBeginner and
thanks for watching. In this video I wanna show you how you
can create a visual sitemap in WordPress. A visual sitemap is a way to show the
design layout of your website in kind of a picture format and it could look
something like this. So to get that let’s first go to our dashboard on our
website. Let’s go over to the plugins area, we’ll be adding a new plugin and we wanna
click add new in the search bar we’re typing in slick sitemap because that’s the plugin that we’ll
be installing and this is the one that we’ll do so I’ll go ahead and click Install.
Once it installs will also need to activate it. Like that, great, now that it is installed and
activated we also want to make sure that we have a menu that we want to use and
you can use any menu you can even create a brand new menu just for this visual
sitemap. Looking at this menu this is the one I’m happy with it shows a lot of the
pages and posts that I wanna show. So I’m gonna choose the nested pages as the
one that I’ll use so next thing we want to do is go to Settings sitemap to create
our sitemap. And from here you just want to pick which one as I showed you earlier its the nested pages for me. Default Columns that’s how many across let’s just choose three. Under utility
menu you want to pick your main menu which for me is also the nested pages. Click Save Changes. Alright the final thing
we want to do is go ahead and create a brand new page so I’m gonna go to pages, add new, and get the title. and you want to enter the shortcode which is slick-sitemap and I’m gonna click publish and now we can see it in action Once that publishes I’ll click on the URL and this
is what my site map looks like. And now you have a visual sitemap added to your
website If you like this video click on the like button and go ahead and leave us a comment there we’d love to hear from you. And subscribe to our YouTube
