Download HTML Blog Sitemap WordPress Plugin



The HTML Blog Sitemap creates a sitemap, just like the image above, and in use on our own blog so that users can easily navigate through your blog’s categories and posts.

Drill down categories

Each category is displayed as a category heading, followed by any posts directly under that category, and then sub categories, each with their posts.

Clicking on a post, takes the user directly to that blog post, and clicking on a category heading drills down to show only that categories posts and sub categories. In this way, your users can drill down, even if your blog is many “layers” deep.

  1. Hello,

    Thanks for the great plugin!
    I have a question, how can I hide a category and the category content, not to show?

    • Hello Svetlin. You’re welcome!

      To be honest I haven’t done any work on this plugin for quite a while. If you can wait a day or two I’ll take a look into it and reply back when I have an answer…

  2. I added the sitemap, but it doesn’t show all the posts for each category (i.e. category “Drive Application”).

    • Hi John,

      Are there any other categories not showing all posts? If so are there any similarities, eg, all show only n number of posts?

      Also, are the posts which are not showing perhaps in multiple categories. If so, are they showing in the other categories?

  3. I just installed the plugin and like most things about it. Except for the styling. Right now the site has dummy content, but there are categories, sub-categories and posts. Unfortunately , the category titles show up in much smaller font size than the sub-categories and this doesn’t make sense to me. Is there a flaw in the plugin? Or is their a css way to make the heirarchy look more logical?

    Thank you for your plugin.

    • Hello Marcia, I will get this taken a look into. As far as I’m aware the plugin applies no styling of its own, it relies on the styling of the theme…

      Like I said, I will check and get back to you soon…

    • Hi Marcia,

      I’ve taken a look at the plugin at the address you gave. As mentioned in our previous reply, HTML blog sitemap does not apply any styling of its own. It deliberately does not apply styling so that the plugin will work according to the theme its being used with.

      Main categories use the h1 header tag, and sub categories use the h2 header tag. It seems that in your theme the h2 is larger than the h1 tag which is why you’re seeing larger sub categories than main category labels.

      • Thanks for taking a look. When I highlight the category title and sub-title, they both show up for me as “body-hyperlinks” and that element has only one styling, and yet it’s displaying totally differently. I’m no ace with css, My theme framework (Headwayj) only uses H1 for post titles AFAIK.

        • Hi Marcia,

          If you take a look at the file


          and you search for these:

          div.entry-content h1{font-size:20px;line-height:180%;}


          div.entry-content h2{font-family:Poiret One;font-size:30px;line-height:140%;color:#7C1616;font-style:normal;font-weight:bold}

          You will see that the h2 is using a size of 30px vz 20px for h1…

          I have played around with those values in Google Chrome dev tools and if I switch h1 to 35px and h2 to 20px it looks better:

          screen shot

          Maybe you can try changing those settings in the actual css file and then make sure that it doesn’t mess with the rest of the site.

          Please do let us know here whatever the result. We’d like to help get it working correctly for you…

  4. Hi, I love your plugin…but I think it has a little error.

    If I have a post that belongs to two categories , its only shown in the first category but in the second one too.

    Do you have a solution for that ?

    • Hello Adrian,

      Thank you for your kind comment!

      I am the plugin developer (for this and “country code failed login”). I will take a look into this and post back here as soon as I have a solution!



    • Hello Adrian,

      I have updated this plugin to version 1.0.2. Please update it from your WordPress plugins page and see if this minor update solves your problem…
