Sitemap API

The Sitemap API returns the pages that would be included in the sitemap.xml file so that you can build out your own custom sitemap page.

The Sitemap API is available on BranchCMS Basic or higher plans.

Learn more about APIs.

The return value from the API call will always be an array of pages. Because of that, you will almost always assign the API result to a variable.

The pages that are returned include any regular pages and app pages that are configured to be included in the sitemap.

There are three things you can do with the Sitemap API.

  1. Get all pages and app pages
  2. Get only the pages within an app
  3. Get only a section within an app

Get all pages and app pages

The default output from the API call is an array of any regular pages and app pages that are configured to be included in the sitemap.

App pages are organized by app section.

{% set sitemap = _api.sitemap.get() %}

Below is an example showing how the sitemap data is organized.

Get only the pages within an app

If you're building a sitemap page you may want to display apps like the blog or calendar separate from regular pages. You can filter the pages returned from the API to only get the pages for a specific app. To do so you would pass the app instance key to the get() method.

For example:

{% set blogPages = _api.sitemap.get('blog') %}

If your app has one or more instances you can go to the "Instances" section of the app to get the available app keys.

If your app doesn't have multiple instances then most likely the default app key is the app instance key. Below is the list of default app keys that could be used if you haven't customized the instance key for the app.

  • app
  • blog
  • calendar
  • campaign
  • directory
  • document
  • employment
  • gallery
  • members
  • page
  • realestate
  • rental
  • store
  • trails

If you are wanting to only get regular pages you can use the sitemap pages API, or you can do the following.

{% set pages = _api.sitemap.get('page') %}

Get only a section within an app

In addition to filtering pages by an app, you can also filter to specific sections within an app.

To do so you will pass the app to the get() parameter and you will need to pass the app section to the section() parameter.

Below is an example to get only the posts within the blog app.

{% set blogPosts = _api.sitemap.get('blog').section('posts') %}

The result from using section() is usually an array of pages. The exception is for app sections where there is only one page.

The app sections that have only one page include:

  • home
  • categorylist
  • taglist
  • Any other "list" page for the app like "itemlist"

For those types of pages the result is the page data instead of an array of pages.

{% set blogHome = _api.sitemap.get('blog').section('home') %}
<p><a href="{{ blogHome.url }}">Blog Home</a></p>

Instead of using section(), you can use the name of the app section as the last parameter.

For example,  you're wanting to get the app home page you can use the home() parameter.

Or, if you're wanting to get the post list page you can use the postList() parameter.

Note that the parameter name does not need to be all lowercase. postlist() works as does postList().

{% set blogHome = _api.sitemap.get('blog').home() %}

Below are common sections within apps. Note, they are not in all apps, but they are common to most.

  • home - the app home page
  • categories - the individual category pages
  • categorylist - the category list page
  • taglist - the tags list page

Page Data

The information included for each page includes:

  • app - The app name.
  • appInstance - The app instance name.
  • appSection - The app section.
  • breadcrumb - The breadcrumb text for the page. For performance reasons this is not set on individual app items because that would typically involve parsing dynamic breadcrumb templates.
  • changeFrequency - The sitemap.xml change frequency value. This is only used with regular pages.
  • id - The id of the page or app item. Not set on the app home or app item list pages.
  • name - The page name or app item name. If this is a list page like a blog post list page then the name value will be the app instance name followed by what the list page contains. For example: Blog Posts, Employment Jobs, or Store Products.
  • priority - The sitemap.xml priority value. This is only used with regular pages.
  • title - The page title. For performance reasons this is not set on individual app items because that would typically involve parsing dynamic title templates.
  • updatedOn - The numerical timestamp of when the page or app item was last updated. Use the date filter to format the date.
  • url - The URL for the page or app item.

Examples

Loop through the entire sitemap data at once

Below is a basic example to simply loop through the apps in the sitemap and then output them. This probably isn't how you want to build your sitemap page, but it shows some examples of how the full sitemap data can be looped through.

{# This builds the different sections of the sitemap #}
{% macro buildSections(app) %}
    <ul>
        {% for key, section in app  %}
            <li><b>{{ key|ucfirst }}</b>
                {% import _self as macros %}
                {{ macros.buildSitemap(section) }}
            </li>
        {% endfor %}
    </ul>
{% endmacro %}
{# This builds the unordered list of pages within an app section #}
{% macro buildSitemap(pages) %}
    <ul>
        {% for page in pages %}
            <li><a href="{{ page.url }}">{{ page.name }}</a> (Last updated on {{ page.updatedOn|date('F j, Y \\a\\t g:i a') }})
                {% if page.children %}
                    {% import _self as macros %}
                    {{ macros.buildSitemap(page.children) }}
                {% endif %}
            </li>
        {% endfor %}
    </ul>
{% endmacro %}
{% import _self as macros %}
{# Get the full sitemap data, loop through the apps, and output the sections and pages #}
{% set sitemap = _api.sitemap.get() %}
{% for key, app in sitemap %}
    <h2>{{ key }}</h2>
    {% if key != 'page' %}
        {{ macros.buildSections(app) }}
    {% else %}
        {{ macros.buildSitemap(app) }}
    {% endif %}
{% endfor %}

Display pages and apps separately

Below are some examples of displaying regular pages separately from app pages. For these examples we're going to use a site that has a blog with a lot of posts and the employment app with about a dozen jobs.  Because there are a lot of posts we're not going to list all blog posts, but we want to list the other app pages and categories. For the employment app we're going to just list the app home page and the jobs.

There are three ways to do this.

  1. Get the full sitemap data as a big array and then pull out the parts that we want.
  2. Get the apps that we need as individual arrays and then pull out the parts we want.
  3. Use the app section filters on the API to retrieve just those specific sections.

If you are retrieving app sections from the array of sitemap data instead of filtering the API, make sure that you use the lowercase version of the app section.
For example, with the API call, you can use the case insensitive version:

{% set categoryList = _api.sitemap.get('blog').categoryList() %}

But when accessing the sitemap app data you need to use the lower case version

{% set sitemap = _api.sitemap.get() %}
{{ sitemap.blog.categorylist.url }}

Get the full sitemap data as a big array and then pull out the parts that we want.

{# This builds the different sections of the sitemap #}

        {% for key, section in app  %}
            <li><b>{{ key|ucfirst }}</b>

                {{ macros.buildSitemap(section) }}
            </li>
        {% endfor %}
    </ul>
{% endmacro %}

                {% if page.children %}
                    {% import _self as macros %}
                    {{ macros.buildSitemap(page.children) }}
                {% endif %}
