Add-on Is there an addon/solution for a HTML sitemap?

    I see that Google actively uses the html sitemap for my vbulletin big board. I do not want to loose my ranking when migrating to XF. Is there a replacement for this HTML sitemap?

    For the sake of clarity: I am not referring to the sitemaps.org XML that is automatically submitted to Google.

    Should it also show addons? It's not showing resources, media, pages.

    It will display pages if they are set to be shown in the node list.

    It will only show add-on navigation tabs if the developers have chosen to add those links there. I would guess that most don't, as generally the Quick Nav is thought to be pretty useless.

    Hence my comment:
    You'd just need to edit the quick_navigation_menu template to add additional links.

    What does this actually mean "Google actively uses the html sitemap?"

    Googlebot spiders sitemap.php (vbulletin) and uses it heavily to index my threads. The closest thing that xenforo has is recent threads, but that's limited in the number of threads, while vbulletin sitemap.php displays all 200k threads.
