    the generation of a sitemap did not work it when to a you page could not be found page.
    I'm going to try again now as I write this.
    deleted simple sitemap plug-in and install yours alpha5 and activated still had my settings in the database. went over them and Hit the link to the sitemap on the settings page and got this
    Sorry, we can't find the content you're looking for at this URL. Please try selecting a menu item from above or to the side of this message to get where you'd like to go.

    I will leave it installed so we can fix this

    Working with a5. But the custom post type pages are not indexed.

    Ability to choose which custom post_types to add to the sitemap (in the admin panel) would be an awesome feature.

    Cheers.

    I've been using it on http://capeinfo.com for a few weeks now and there seem to be no problems at all. Occasionally Google has a problem downloading a sitemap but if I resubmit it, it goes through fine.

    n2rga, could you try to re-save your permalink settings in WordPress? Maybe they were not registered successfully.

    The plugin basically works, see http://bloginsphere.com/index.php?xml_sitemap=params=

    Why is the last updated date = 1999-11-30 00:00 for my home page?

    I have the value for 'sm_in_posts' set to false but it is still generating a sitemap for posts.

    tried Getting the new one(beta) and seems wordpress's plugin download section took a dump.

    I clicked the link http://bloginsphere.com/index.php?xml_sitemap=params= and yes I saw the sitemap for http://bloginsphere.com/sitemap-misc.xml and others bu8t not sitemap.xml
    what could be causing this?
    I will keep trying the download of the new one. You have the best sitemap creation program around and it does work on my other sites great.

    Hello

    I installed latest beta on 3.0 running multisite.

    It seems to work fine.

    The only thing is that it only shows 12 posts on -posts file, while I have 20.

    Is there a limiting option somewhere?

    Thanks

    @Josextrema
    Do you have a membership type plug-in installed that limits access.
    I do and noticed this myself.

    @n2rga

    No membership plugins in this install.

    I'm only using mailpress, statcounter, redirection and google xml sitemaps.

    Other than the limited number of posts on the sitemap.xml, the plugin seems to work great on all the sites in the network.

    @all: Please try the new 4.0b2 version which should fix some bugs:

    http://www.arnebrachhold.de/redir/sitemap-dl-beta/

    @rlmckenney: The date should be the date of your last posting or the static page if you've chosen in WordPress to display a static page as your frontpage.

    @webjunkie: Fixed in 4.0b2, thanks for the note!

    @n2rga: The 4.0b2 version adds the rewrite rules in a different way then before, can you try if it works now? If not, could you install the AA Rewrite Viewer and check if they are added? You should see them on the plugin panel within "extra_rules_top" under "feeds".

    @Josextrema: there are no limits, so it should include all your published posts. Could you provide a link to your site?

    Thank you all for testing!

    Thank you very much for this plugin. I installed this version. Everything is working. I am just getting some errors in Google Webmaster Tool for sitemap-tax-category.xml:
    Parsing error
    We were unable to read your Sitemap. It may contain an entry we are unable to recognize. Please validate your Sitemap before resubmitting.
    Invalid XML tag
    This tag was not recognized. Please fix it and resubmit.
    And the file is actually empty. I guess the reason is that I do not have any category in the main site of my multisite website.

    solvedproblemscom, thanks for your feedback. Could you post a link to the not working category sitemap or the source code on pastebin? It would be good to know if there is an error, because if it just empty Google shouldn't say that there was an invalid tag...

    Hello Arne,

    Any chance you will add an action after add_url's add_element? (line 1668 of your b2) something like
    do_action('sm_addurl',$page);

    This will be very helpful

    And also, is it possible to somehow integrate with your plugin so that my plugin will be able to render new sitemaps (based on yours?) eg.
    assuming you have an sitemap.xml index pointing to a posts-2010.xml, I would like to be able to create something like
    sitemap-he.xml pointing to a posts-2010-he.xml which will contain links to pages in a different language (an example)

    Another thing, will be happy to contribute a translation to your plugin to Hebrew, let me know if you are interested.

    Thanks for your work.

    Arne, thanks for your work.

    I'm trying out your latest 4.0b2. Is it supposed to work with multisite settings with subdomains? I plan to have some subdomains under my main site http://ITExpert4U.com. Because most of them will be demo sites, I don't plan to register level 1 domains for all of them. The sitemap.xml for my main site is all fine. However, I try one of my subdomain, it shows an error of "Only one top level element is allowed in an XML document. " You can see it at http://bettergps.itexpert4u.com/sitemap.xml.
    To make things more complex, I also created another subdomain http://demo.itexpert4u.com, which is a separate installation of WordPress, sitting at http://ITExpert4u.com/demo. Will that cause conflict? I suppose not?
    Thanks again!

    @all: Please try the new 4.0b3 version which should fix some bugs:
    http://www.arnebrachhold.de/redir/sitemap-dl-beta/

    @solvedproblemscom: Bug should be fixed in 4.0b3

    @ITExpert: Should not cause any conflicts :-) Please try the new 4.0b3 beta and your error should be gone!

    @Ofer Wald: I've added the hook to the AddUrl function. Allowing other plugins to add additional pages was one of the major goals of the refactoring. Please see here for an example how to add an extra sitemap for your items. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! :-)

    im using the latest beta version on my multisite.
    but when i submit the sitemap xml as ' /sitemap.xml '

    google says:
    "General HTTP error: 404 not found
    We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit."

    however the sitemap links are fine.

    any ideas?

    thanks

    B3 Not working for me.
    I think I'm going to Wipe out my site and Start from fresh in the past I had a problem with one or two plug ins and did not stick around this long as I was here to figure it out. Seems I'm the only one having this problem.
    At any rate after close to 200 sign ups they were all Spammers (Sploggers)
    So I'm going to Re do my site. or I might even not do it and dump it. I have a Decision to make I can't be leave that with all I'm offering no one wants a free Blog except spammers. O-Well.

    @artur: Thanks for testing, could you provide a link to the not-working sitemap for further investigation?

    @n2rga: If it works on a clean installation, it would be good to know if any other plugins caused the problems :-)

    @ Arne,

    I tried installing 4.0b3 but got the following for the main xml (http://www.solved-problems.com/sitemap.xml):

    ERROR: sitemap is not a valid feed template.

    Other xml files loook ok (http://calculus.solved-problems.com/sitemap.xml)
    Any clue? Do I need to roll back?

    Thanks

    Please download the current version (version string didn't change) again. The 404 Not found bug should hopefully be fixed now. Thanks again for testing!
