[resolved] Help with Google Sitemap? (7 posts)

    I've installed the v2.0 version of Arne Brachhold's plugin. I would appreciate any tips on how to successfully create a sitemap.

    The Options/Sitemap "Rebuild Sitemap" button finishes in about a second - no result.

    Based on Forum dialogs I created both empty files and assigned 777 privileges:

    http://seekerblog.com/sitemap.xml
    http://seekerblog.com/sitemap.gz

    Still no success.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

    I think the second one should be sitemap.xml.gz

    Don't you have to make the directory these files are in writeable? And I thought these files were automatically created?

    Set your public_html to 777 try it out. If it works build your map then set it back to 666 to make it just writeable.
    I use version 2.7.1 and this worked when I had the issue on one of my blogs. Also this sitemap is cool it actually lets you rotate links on the side bar based on importance(awesome).

    Thanks for the tips. On clicking "Rebuild Sitemap" my results are still an empty sitemap.xml file.

    What I have done:

    1. created empty sitemap.xml, and sitemap.xml.gz - set 777 permissions
    2. temporarily set 777 permissions on my blog root at /xd1/homes/hash/41/a2141/90/05/u20590/seekerblog.com/www/
    3. Disable, then enable Sitemap Generator 2.7.1
    4. Click Rebuild Sitemap.

    When I click Rebuild, my browser page clears all the plugin content in about a second.

    Dang - any help much appreciated!

    Update: I just tried the latest beta v3.0b1. Same result.

    I found a fix: increasing the PHP memory [did this test on Beta 3.0b1]. To the function BuildSitemap() I added the following:

    //Increase memory
    ini_set("memory_limit","128M");

    I did not test to determine smallest memory allocation that would work.
