Google News Sitemap Generator
Google News Parsing Error - Not Well Formed (3 posts)

    I receive the following error when trying to view my sitemap in Google Webmaster Tools. Also, the plugin doesn't automatically update unless I manually delete the plugin and reinstall it.

    XML Parsing Error: not well-formed

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    I suspect your permalink has a character in it which annoys your XML parser.

    If you still had that sitemap, running something like the unix xmllint over it would identify the field in question and allow you to ensure the problem is solved.

    (I'm suggesting the permalink field as this seems to be the only one which isn't escaped with htmlspecialchars... perhaps I'll rewrite it.
