OK it works fine now with these parameters!
Thanks a lot!

Do you have ideas about my question 2?
Must we set formatters definitions in the sitemap.config, although we set it in the xsd? Are the parameters minwidth and maxwidth mandatory? In which cases an element registered in a container have no display?

Hello Sandrine,

I investigate the first question a bit, it seems there is an issue with module parameter for sitemap config in OpenCms 8.0.0. If you want to use it, please configure following two module parameters and restart OpenCms:


Both parameters should show to the same configuration. It seems that there was something missed during refactoring for OpenCms 8. The issue will be fixed in one of the next releases. So far both parameters have to be set, if the resource type configuration of the module should be used.

I hope this works for you.

Kind Regards,

My module in /system/modules contains a file /_config/sitemap.config of type sitemap_config. My module have the parameter "config.sitemap=/system/modules/mymodule/_config/sitemap.config". I restart Tomcat. I preview a container page under my site folder. The ADE add dialog is empty... Nothing in opencms.log.

> The other posibility is to define the resource types inside of the module. In that case set the path to the sitemap config of the module as a module parameter and restart OpenCms. If you did so you can export the module and import it on another OpenCms, after the restart the configured resource types will/should be directly available in the new system. However If you add a sitemap config for the same resource types inside your site, it will overwrite the configuration of the module.
