News SEO not working (5 posts)

    For a few months now, the News SEO module part of WordPress SEO by Yoast has not been working for us.

    Google Webmaster Tools constantly reports this error:

    Issue:
    Missing XML tag

    Description:
    This required tag is missing. Please add it and resubmit.

    Example:
    Sitemap: windsorite.ca/news-sitemap.xml
    Parent tag: urlset
    Tag: url

    Line:
    5

    And looking at the XML file several times a day, it never updates, it never changes, and it never works even though we have dozens of news stories per day.

    (1). Have you tried disabling your cache plugin and checking for errors?

    (2). Your sitemap xml is incorrect. Have you modified them or added code to individual files?

    1) The entire plugin and its directories, including the XML files, have been already excluded from w3tc.

    2) No modification made whatsoever. Running the plugin as installed from its page here on WordPress.org.

    Looks like you have fixed it now ??? The XML is working correctly.

    Well, strangely, it's only showing a few select posts, when we've published quite a bit of other news since.
