Site Map Widget
What is it?
The Site Map widget provides a way for people to navigate and explore your community. The community Administrator can select the root location of the Site Map widget and it will display all navigable areas of your community from there. For example, a Site Map widget could be used to display only the [pages](and Channels that are part of that space. Alternatively, it could show the entire layout of your community.
Selecting any of the links in the Site Map widget will bring a person to that page in your community. People can only view items that they have the proper access for.

The Site Map widget provides additional functionality compared to the Navigation widget as it allows people to drill down into nested pages that are part of your community.

Description - This text is displayed below the title and above the site map.
Start point - Your community, a page, or space can serve as the base location that is displayed in the Site Map widget. Only locations that are below this start point will be displayed, including any additional nested locations.
