    I built my sitemap, but got an error message that Ask.com couldn't connect (or something). Any suggestions?

    I wouldn't worry about this too much. It's not uncommon to get intermittent connection errors for a few days at a time.

    I have been getting this error on every site I use this plug-in on for the better part of a month. Anyone know of a fix?

    I successfully installed, activated and bulit the sitemap with the following messages:
    Google was successfully notified about changes
    Bing was successfully notified about changes
    There was a problem when notifying Ask.com

    Here is the detail

    Notice: WP HTTP API Web Request failed: couldn't connect to host in /home/abc/public_html/wp-content/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/sitemap-core.php on line 2373

    Something weird going on with Ask but as long as Google and Bing are happy!!!

    Ask.com is no longer a search engine. They dropped this part of there business and now a question and answer website. Ask.com needs to be removed from this plugin. Read about it over here. http://mashable.com/2010/11/09/ask-com-shut-down/

    Did not know that about ask.com being shut down. Interesting.
