Hello Callum

You have access to your Sitemap via this URL:
http://yourdomain.com/sitemap.xml
You could add it as a link to your website.

You could add it e.g. in an iframe at the bottom of your website (you will need to repeat this for each page):
  1. Drag and drop an HTML Widget to the bottom of your page.

  2. Copy/paste the following code into the HTML editor:
    <iframe src ="http://yourdomain.com/sitemap.xml" width="100%" height="300">
    
    <p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>
    </iframe>

  3. You can adjust the height to your liking.


I know this doesn't look nice and is maybe not what you were thinking of. If you surf on the internet, you will realize that hardly any website displays a sitemap any more because it has become quite old-fashioned.

If you have a good navigation, you won't need to display the sitemap of your website, and with regard to SEO, submitting it to Google and other search engines will absolutely do the job!
