Feeds that comply with the XML Sitemap and Google News protocol for the hungry spiders. Multisite compatible.
Quick installation: Install now !
… OR …
Search for "xml sitemap feed" and install with that slick Plugins > Add New back-end page.
… OR …
Follow these steps:
Upload the zip file via the Plugins > Add New > Upload page … OR … unpack and upload with your favourite FTP client to the /plugins/ folder.
Activate the plugin on the Plugins page.
If you have been using another XML Sitemap plugin before, check your site root and remove any created sitemap.xml file that remained there.
Done! Check your sparkling new XML Sitemap by visiting yourblogurl.tld/sitemap.xml (adapted to your domain name ofcourse) with a browser or any online XML Sitemap validator. You might also want to check if the sitemap is listed in your yourblogurl.tld/robots.txt file.
Same as above but do a Network Activate to make a XML sitemap available for each site on your network.
The plugin works best from the /mu-plugins/ folder where it runs quietly in the background without bothering any blog owner with over-complicated options or the need for special knowledge of XML Sitemap submission. Just upload the complete package content to /mu-plugins/ and move the file xml-sitemap.php from the new /mu-plugins/xml-sitemap-feed/ to /mu-plugins/.
Installed alongside WordPress MU Sitewide Tags Pages, XML Sitemap Feed will not create a sitemap.xml nor change robots.txt for any tag blogs. This is done deliberately because they would be full of links outside the tags blogs own domain and subsequently ignored (or worse: penalised) by Google.
