Google News Sitemap Generator

    My blog is on a Windows box with PHP and MySQL. When I try to activate the Google News Sitemap Generator plugin from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-news-sitemap-generator/ I get the following error:

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in E:\WebSites\domain\blog\wp-content\plugins\google-news-sitemap-generator\google-news-sitemap.php on line 364

    I checked the syntax and everything seems correct. I even tried removing the } at then end of the file (line 364). The plugin then activates but outputs a bunch of code instead of displaying the admin area or public pages.

    I tried both version 1.4 and 1.5.

    I was able to get it to work by changing the opening line of the plugin's code <? to <?php. It should have worked either way, weird.

    Thanks depiction.

    It fixed the issue. Wonder why it didn't work with <?

    Thanks again for the fix.

    There is a second <? within the code; that's what is probably breaking the admin panel.
