Lesson 6. Managing Your Site > Links in Site Map View

Links in Site Map View

You can control what files display in the site map by choosing to hide individual linked files. Files are only hidden in the Map View—they are still visible in the Local Files list. You can also make changes to the files by adding or deleting links.

1.
Click the plus sign to the left of technology.html in the site map.

The list of files that technology.html links to are displayed.

2.
Click the history.html file icon in the list of links in technology.html to select the link to the history.html file.

The file is selected in the Map View.

3.
Choose Site > Site Map View > Show/Hide Link (Macintosh) or View > Show/Hide Link (Windows).

The history.html file disappears from the list.

4.
Choose Site > Site Map View > Show Files Marked As Hidden (Macintosh) or View > Show Files Marked As Hidden (Windows).

This option lets you temporarily view all files marked as hidden. The history.html filename is italicized to indicate that it is a hidden link.

5.
With the italicized history.html selected, choose Site > Site Map View > Show/Hide Link (Macintosh) or View > Show/Hide Link (Windows).

The history file is no longer marked as hidden and appears as normal in the site map.

6.
Choose the Map and Files view from the Site Map icon on the toolbar. Select the background.html file that you created in the Lesson_06_Sites/history folder from the Local Files pane of the Site window. Choose Site > Site Map View > Set as Home Page (Macintosh) or Site > Set As Home Page from the Site Window (Windows).

You have switched to Map and Files View. The background.html file is now the only file that appears in the Site Map View because it has no links to other pages.

7.
Select the background.html file in the Site Map View. Click the Point to File icon and drag it to history.html in the Lesson_06_Sites folder in the Local Files pane. Release the mouse button when the history.html file becomes highlighted.

As you drag, the pointer becomes an arrow and a Point to File icon. A line is drawn as you drag from the background.html file to the history.html file. When you release the pointer, history.html shows up in the Site Map View. The link to history.html has been inserted into the background.html document. If you open background.html you will see the link.

TIP

You can also add, remove and change links from the Site > Site Map View submenu.

8.
Select the index.html file in the Lesson_06_Sites folder and choose Site > Site Map View > Set as Home Page (Macintosh) or View > Set as Home Page (Windows).

The index.html file is now defined as the home page again.
