To show you a live example of building a site map of a website, let's use Websnake's
1. Open WebSnake through the Start Menu. By
default, the program opens with the Project Wizard (a Windows feature that leads you
step-by-step through the process). If you're already in the program, click on the Add
button on the main screen or select the Add Project Wizard command in the File menu.
2. Select the fourth radio button "Create a
site map of a website," then click on the Next button.
3. Type in www.websnake.com in the Starting
Address/URL field. Also, give the project a name. Call our project "Websnake Site
Map." So, type the words "Websnake Site Map" in the Project Name field, then
click on the Next button.
4. The next wizard screen asks if you need a
password to access the website. For our example, just click on the Next button to
go to the following screen.
5. You must tell WebSnake how deep you want it to
snake as well as give tell it when to stop in the event that you're snaking a large
website. For expediency, use the arrow buttons to reduce the number of levels from
"3" (which is the default) to "1" in the "How many levels do you
wish to snake?" field, then click on the Next button. You're not going to be
snaking that much so the "Stop project if number of HTML files search exceed"
field doesn't come into play.
6. On the next wizard screen, click on the Finish
button to conclude the project setup.
7. Name your session. Think of a session as a
category of projects, like Entertainment-related or Sports-related. For our example, type
in "browsers" in the file name field, the click on the Save button to
initiate the snaking process. Note that this step is skipped if you've already created
a session and are saving the project into that session.
8. WebSnake will snake a site map of the
