Microsoft provides the following example for creating some actions in a web.config.

<actions>
   <add path="configuration/SharePoint/SafeControls">
      <SafeControl
         Assembly="System.Web, Version=1.0.5000.0, Culture=neutral, 
            PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
         Namespace="System.Web.UI.WebControls"
         TypeName="*"
         Safe="True"/>
   </add>
   <remove path="configuration/SharePoint/RuntimeFilter"/>
   <add path="configuration/SharePoint">
      <RuntimeFilter
         Assembly="Company.Product, Version=1.0.1000.0, 
            Culture=neutral, PublickKeyToken=1111111111"
         Class="MyRuntTimeFilter",
         BuilderUrl="MyBuilderUrl"/>
   </add>
</actions>

I want to add something to:

<siteMap defaultProvider="CurrentNavigation" enabled="true">
  <providers>

I have tried:

  <providers>

  </providers>

and

<siteMap>
  <providers>
    <add name="JOHN" siteMapFile="john.xml" type="Microsoft.SharePoint.Navigation.SPXmlContentMapProvider, Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" />
  </providers>
</siteMap>

but my content is not being added. My file webconfig.john.xml is in the CONFIG folder. Running stsadm -o copyappbincontent is generating a new web.config file.

Here's what I have:

<add name="portalsitea_C3Management"
siteMapFile="/_app_bin/portalsitea/NLC3ManagementQuickLaunch.sitemap"
type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />

I put my sitemaps in the _app_bin and they have a .sitemap extension. Note that I had some problems when I originally set this up because the sitemap file was not encoded properly with the text editor I was using. So make sure it is encoded properly.

Note also that I am using the XmlSiteMapProvider. You should be able to find plenty of documentation on it if you would rather use that.

Also, make sure you change the sitemapprovider on your master pages. If you need an example of that. Let me know.

If you could provide an example that would be great. –  John Oct 20 '11 at 8:09

Try this

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<actions>
  <add path="configuration/system.web/siteMap/providers">
 <add name="JOHN" siteMapFile="/_layouts/FeatureName/john.xml" type="Microsoft.SharePoint.Navigation.SPXmlContentMapProvider, Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" />
  </add>
</actions>

make sure you deploy your sitemap to the layouts\FeatureName folder.
