SiteMap Change SiteMapProvider / Create Multiple Web.sitemap Files?

Jan 25, 2011

I've got a custom menu navigation built from a web.sitemap file, the first line of this would be something like:

SiteMapNodeCollection topLevelNodes = SiteMap.RootNode.ChildNodes;

However, now I want to be able to create multiple web.sitemap files, and then programmatically determine which web.sitemap file to use, but I can't seem to find out how to do this. I'm assuming I could either create one custom SiteMapProvider that can perform the logic to determine which web.sitemap file to load, or I have multiple providers, each one with the SiteMapFile property set to a specific *.sitemap file, and then switch providers programmatically before I access SiteMap.RootNode.

Web Forms :: SiteMap.CurrentNode Returns Null For Internal SiteMapProvider?

Mar 7, 2010

I've run into an issue where calling SiteMap.CurrentNode returns null when it really shouldn't be. I'm using SiteMap.CurrentNode to highlight certain buttons on the page and generate a sub navigation bar (through SiteMap.CurrentNode.ChildNodes).

Now this works until I attempt to get to my pages of which are generated by a dynamic provider. For some reason whenever I attempt this on my Projects page SiteMap.CurrentNode returns null. Overall this is a bad situation for my program because then I cant generate my sub-navigation bar.

I was hoping someone here might be able to figure out the fault in my Sitemap or provider so that I can do a basic tutorial to others who are attempting the same thing since I haven't seen a tutorial that implements a provider in the manner that I have.


<siteMap xmlns="" >
<siteMapNode url="~/Default.aspx" title="Home" description="Home page where updates and other information can be found">
<siteMapNode provider="ProjectProvider" />
<siteMapNode url="~/Contact/Default.aspx" title="Contacts" description="Contacts" />


Implements the following methods and all of them do not return Null (I checked via debug):
- RootNode
- GetRootNodeCore
- Initialize
- Clear
- BuildSiteMap

Sitemap Randomly Breaks Over Time / Could Not Find The Sitemap Node With URL '~/Default.aspx'

Aug 2, 2010

I've been having some production runtime errors that I don't fully understand. This has happened to us on a couple different ASP.NET 4.0 Web Sites (shudders - yes, I know - we're porting it to MVC but that's taking some time).

First of all, we have never been able to reproduce this issue in development/QA environments. Secondly, upon deployment, the issue seems to be non-existent. Sometimes the issue manifests within a day or two of deployment and other times the deployment will be live for a month without it manifesting at all. However, once it manifests, then ANY page viewed under the web site causes the error. Lastly, this problem seemed to only come up once we migrated to .NET 4.0. We started at 2.0, a year ago upped to 3.5, and recently upped to 4.0 with this solution and most child projects.

The error:

Could not find the sitemap node with URL '~/Default.aspx'.

A simplified version of our sitemap (with some names changed and uninteresting nodes removed) is as follows:

<siteMap xmlns="">
<siteMapNode roles="*" title="EG">
<siteMapNode url="~/../SM/Default.aspx" title="Welcome" description="" roles="*" />
<siteMapNode url="~/../SD/Default.aspx" title="SD" description="" roles="*" />
<siteMapNode url="~/../SMD/Default.aspx" title="SMD" description="" roles="*" />


I have confirmed in all of the SiteMaps that there is a node with url="~/Default.aspx" with roles="*" (which includes public/anonymous access), so I am very confused as to why this problem occurs.

SiteMap does not have a node for Default.aspx. All of them do. SiteMap's Default.aspx node is not accessible for security reasons to the current user/role. They're all accessible to anonymous users and this problem even exists for super admin users. Passed-in URL contains querystrings (Default.aspx?abcd). I don't know if this is a problem (I sure would hope not) but once the problem manifests itself, I can handwrite the URL with no querystrings and the problem still exists.

SiteMap changes. It doesn't Service's permissions to the sitemap file. The sitemap works perfectly fine after a deployment, so unless permissions are changed in a way that IISRESET fixes, then this is not an issue. The worker process becomes globally corrupt. I don't think so. We have ~12 web sites all in the same app pool and the problem always stays confined within a single web site. Also, we have yet to have this happen to more than a single web site at a time although it has manifested itself in 4 different ones so far.

C# - How To Get The Name Of Sitemap File From Sitemap Provider

Oct 6, 2010

I am creating a CacheDependency on the file that my SiteMap provider uses. I would like to get the name of the file from my sitemap provider instead of hard coding it. Is there a way?


Duh, I forgot to mention: XmlSiteMapProvider that comes with ASP.NET

Edit 2

Reflector shows a private member field called _filename that isn't exposed in any way as far as I can tell.

Web Forms :: SiteMap With Multiple Paths To Same Page?

Jul 20, 2010

I have a sitemap, and i'm using nested repeaters to display the parent and child nodes for my breadcrumbs.I have 3 pages: Home, Hub, and Search.Each of these pages can navigate to each other. In other words:

Home> Hub
Home> Search
Home> Hub > Search
Home> Search > Hub
Home > Default

The most common path would be "Home > Hub" and Home > Search > HubHowever, I can't seem to figure out how to show this on my breadcrumbs, since you can't have multiple ULR's in the Sitemap. Right now, you can only go "Home > Hub". If you go from "Search" to " should show "Home > Search > Hub" in the breadcrumbs.

Share Site Map Across Multiple Projects Or Sitemap With Sql Data Source

Feb 10, 2010

Now, I've refactored my code to have a data layer, business layer and the main project as the view layer. Next I'd like to split this big project smaller projects based on discrete functionality. As I understand it, one way to handle a shared masterpage is to copy it into each project, that's not the worst thing, it hasn't changed in over a year and if it does it's easy enough to propagate the changes out to the other projects.

I was also reading that I could create an assembly from my master page and share it that way. My masterpage.aspx has a reference to a sitemap, Unlike the masterpage I'd like to maintain only one site map if possible.
