    Hi,
    I have a problem with WordPress.
    I have a template that can display all the categories at the top,
    but when I click a category, already the 10 latest posts show up.

    Now I want it different, like a real Website with a good
    Menu, that it will first display only ALL the topics in this category
    just with links, so one can see exactly, what articles(posts)
    are there...

    It always bugged me, that Wordpress has no good menu,
    where I can see ALL the contens of the website...

    So what plugin does allow a good overview, what ALL articles(posts)
    are there ?
    Is there any Sitemap plugin that also outputs this and that will
    display ALL posts just as links ? ( not just a sitemap.xml file,
    but a real sitemap.html file which could be integrated into the
    category menu ? )

    Please also post a few URLs, so I can see, how other sites are doing this.

    Many thanks.

    Regards, friend4you.

    Do you mean something like Dagon's sitemap generator?

    Code:
    http://www.dagondesign.com/articles/sitemap-generator-plugin-for-wordpress/
    It's just as easy to use as the google sitemap generator; only requires an extra step or two and some tweaking if you don't really like the look of the output, but pretty simple nonetheless. It will display everything as just links on one page (or multiple pages should you have a ton of content). I don't have an example readily available as I only have used it on a few blogs and don't really know which ones. :/ But you do create a page, add the call for the plugin, and bam you have a page you can add to your menu. Is that what you are looking for?

    Well, I had been using just this sitemap generator plugin:

    Google (XML) Sitemaps Generator for WordPress

    from arnebrachholdDOTde
    but this seems to only generate a sitemap.xml file ?
    (I am not yet allowed to post links here I am told by
    the forum software..)

    I will test the other one...

    Which one is better for both jobs, for doing a sitemap.xml
    file for google webmastertools and also generate
    a real menu structure ?

    Many thanks.

    Hmm, does it also generate a sitemap.xml file for Google ?

    I don´t find this file anywhere..
    Hmm, where does it place it ?

    Can't recall. I use/d it on autoblogs and I don't submit them to Google. There is a code you have to copy and paste into a wordpress page and save. Then you'll see the page with the contents.

    You may also try out the Table of Contents plugin:

    Code:

    Don't recall either if it generates as .xml, but the overall look is nicer.

    I use both Dagons sitemap and the google xml and it works well together.
