    We currently have sitefinity in use with another portion of our site - ecommerce.

    /site/
          /sitefinity/
          /ecommerce/

    I need to build out the navigation we have in place from sitefinity on the ecommerce folder, but since the sitefinity pages are dynamic, how do i approach this?

    I did notice the Navigation controls in sitefinity use a SiteMapDataSource, but i did not see a sitemap file to use.

    Thanks for the help

    Hello mcpdinkansas,

    The SiteMapDataSource control is a source to the site map data that is stored by the site map providers that are configured for your site. There is a default SiteMap provider defined in the web.config

    <add name="CmsSiteMapProvider" description="Displays Cms Pages" type="Telerik.Cms.Web.CmsSiteMapProvider" /> 

    However, the best way that I could come is to export the SiteMap as WebServices and call it in your e-commerce website( binding it to your navigation controls)

    The best way is to have all in one place - not as separate application. Thus you will avoid such references.

    I hope that this helps.

    Sincerely yours,

    Ivan,

    Thanks for your reply. Since my ecommerce site is able to reference the same Library, i have introduced a method that builds the pages from the Telerik.Cms.CmsManager class.

    Thanks

    Ivan,
    Can you elaborate (or provide documentation) on creating a webservice with the Sitefinity sitemap? I may be in this boat so I need more details here.

    Thank you.

    - Chris
