Site Map Tool

The Site Map tool is a Main Body tool that can be used to display links to other pages in the section. For example, if you have a level 1 page that is empty because all the content really belongs on the level 2 and 3 pages you could use the Site Map tool to display the level 2 and 3 links on the level 1 page.
