    I don't know why people fixed things that's not broken,and then it really broken after,i really thought it was google needed time to re-indexed my post but it's now 3 days and it still saying 0 for me so it's time to dump this plugin and i found a way better one called (Better WordPress Google XML Sitemaps) that works great for me and better features as well.

    The time i take to figure out plugin issues i can be posting things on my site so this is why i dump it for another one can't be bother with it any more time to move on..

    Actually Arnee recntly whose sitemap update,that are rubbish for users.We think that in this sitemap has bad effect in any one website.So,Arnee you come back in old version of xml sitemap for users.

    I look at my site maps every day on google...
    On one... it showed blank data, and when I go on to google sitemaps..

    Sitemap details
    Sitemap: /myWordPressblog/sitemap.xml
    -------------
    It then produced this error...
    "Error loading stylesheet: An unknown error has occurred (805303f4)
    wp-content/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/sitemap.xsl"

    -------------

    I deleted the sitemap... uninstalled the plugin.
    Re-installed plugin... but version 3.3.1.zip.

    "Tested" and Google says ok...
    But... when I use...
    Sitemap details
    Sitemap: /myWordPressblog/sitemap.xml

    It again the same "Error loading stylesheet: An unknown error has occurred (805303f4)"

    But everything else looks OK.. and it shows the "pages" were indexed.. and "pending" which at this time is normal.
    ========================
    On my other website (same hosting company.. identical plugin's)
    Version 4 updated version everything is OK

    Thusly I have no idea what is going on ????

    I just found the answer...
    http://opensourcecmsinfo.com/how-to-fix-error-loading-stylesheet-an-unknown-error-has-occurred-805303f4/

    It has to do with the www infront of your domain.

    Without the www I do not get the error returned on my one domain.
    With the www on the other domain I get the error.

    Hope that helps... maybe it is how the .xls responds to the www. listing of the domain ?

    I just set my preferred domain without the www and I did not get the error
    "Error loading stylesheet: An unknown error has occurred (805303f4)
    wp-content/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/sitemap.xsl"

    But I did get an error for the sitemap.xml indicating one of the .xml was formatted as an html page.

    So for now I deactivated the plugin . And manually uploaded a sitemap that I generated myself and that shows no errors.

    The version I deactivated was 4.04

    I noticed a problem with Google XML Sitemaps when I installed the "new version". I deleted the old sitemaps from the warning in 4.0.4 and they were successfully resubmitted to google. I did notice however, that during the time when I had the plugin installed that google was not picking any of my new posts at the time I set it (ie. hourly, I do a few posts a day).

    Once resubmitted the new sitemap waited about a day I noticed no posts were being indexed.

    I just reverted back to old sitemap (3.3.1 version) rebuilt sitemap, resubmitted. My entire site was re-indexed within 2 hours. I expect google to normally pick up my site pretty quickly.. so I think there is something wrong with 4.0.4.

    Just a quick update, I updated to 4.0.5 and it is working now.

    The sitemaps started to get indexed shortly after updating to the latest version.. and it took about a day for >90% of links to get indexed.

    @oldblogger: Can you try the new ping-all-sub-sitemaps function on the config page of the plugin? (version 4.0.5)

    Hi all, this may seem rather obvious. In the site map submission section of google webmaster, if you have set your site up in webmaster and it is displayed, then when you click on the add/test sitemap, your website address should be displayed??? example http://www.yoursitename.com/ there should be a blank box to the right??? if so you only need to submit the sitemap.xml element of the address, otherwise you will get a 404 error as if you enter the full http address here you are doubling up. So in short if you have your site set up on webmaster you only need to add the sitemap.xml to the page to add or test. Hope this helps. Took me a day to figure it out, so simp,e but not until you see it.

    I was using the old version on Raksha Bandhan and recently updated the sitemap. Does this affect site indexing or not?
