HTML Site Map | v1.0.11
Why do you need an HTML Site Map on your e-commerce website?
Give visitors a good overview of your store. They will see all the links to the products as well as to any other pages.
A user-friendly site map definitely improves site usability. It’s one of the key factors for Google to make your site trusted.
With the help of sitemap you can also draw users' attention to the most important pages or the pages with information you want to emphasize. But in case you've got thousands of products in your store, you risk to spend hours or even days trying to place all necessary links to your sitemap page.
Our HTML Magento Site Map extension will automatically build highly relevant Magento HTML site map and help you to forget about routine monotonous work.

I do suggest using 3d paty apps for the sitemap as Magento native functionality leaves much to be desired. I don’t know whether this very extension is the best offer on the market, but I’m fully satisfied with it. Clear settings and detailed instructions have definitely won my heart.
Minuses: it still lacks pagination, which is really necessary for our store. It also may have conflicts with your custom theme
The extensions has all the settings for adding/deleting pages from the site map, the only thing I need is pagination. Eventually my developer added it himself but I think it’s a nice feature for shops like mine where you have thousands of links to add to the sitemap.
The issue was quickly eliminated and I got a handy tool that works as described. All our numerous categories, product pages and additional pages are correctly displayed. The option of excluding particular pages, (especially with out of stock products) from the map is a big plus as well.
Although the module doesn’t work with landing pages without an additional plugin, it does everything it promises.
