    My site at http://www.merrimackvalleymarealestate.com has generated a site map with this plugin. Under my google webmaster account, it shows the website has been crawled, the pages are not indexed and a big Red X shows under status. No errors are shown..... any suggestions?

    Been a long time since this plugin generated any sitemaps at my site as well, just noticed. Needs an update perhaps?

    Again, I would agree... I have had Google News Bot parked on my site for hours, and not pick-up a single article... the webmasters tools show the big red X as well with a notation to something being "broken" in the sitemap... and I haven't a clue...

    you've probably have fallen victim to the all new and improved Google News... that is, they are keeping trash sites like examiner.com and many more, and booting all the new start-up sites... just not profitable for Google News...

    >a big Red X shows under status [for the sitemap]<

    I found that my XML Sitemap Generator plugin was set to add additional pages as recommended by the description for that section which states:

    "Here you can specify files or URLs which should be included in the sitemap, but do not belong to your Blog/WordPress.
    For example, if your domain is http://www.foo.com and your blog is located on http://www.foo.com/blog you might want to include your homepage at http://www.foo.com"

    It seems that google doesn't like multiple version of a URL in the sitemap. I removed the additional pages in that section of the plugin setup and now get the green checkmark for my sitemap files.

    I had a similar problem (red cross).
    I ran my sitemap through an online validator and found some problems, which I am going to try and fix, hopefully it will solve the problem with Google Webmasters Tools.
