So ...

First of all, you'll have to define the content and the hierarchy levels for your visual sitemap ... And for that, you'll have to create a new navigation menu.

Simply go to Appearance => Menus and create the new menu with sub-menus included. You can add any pages or posts that you want to display in your visual map. And don't forget, sub-menus can have their own sub-menu items:


Once you have created and saved your new menu, you'll have to set up the actual visual sitemap. Go to Settings => Slick Sitemap and select the newly created menu from the "Default Sitemap Menu" drop-down list:


Next, you can choose the number of columns you want to be displayed. Also, you can define a so-called utility menu that will be displayed on top of your visual sitemap and contains just a few important pages. You can create a separate utility menu or you can use an existing site menu:

I just added this free plugin to my author site and I really like it.

So I put my press kit under my homepage and I moved my sitemap link to the other menu, the one that has about, contact, earning disclosure, privacy policy.

Here's a screen shot.
