    Hi There
    Can anyone please assist this total newbie on what exactly to do in order to get a sitemap uploaded (if that's even the correct term) to my wordpress site. I've installed the Google XML Sitemaps plugin. I have however not uploaded a sitemap as yet. I have no idea what I'm doing. I have done some research but everything I read is pretty much jibberish to me. I'm a marketing guy trying some technical stuff so baby steps please. Any HELP will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Just read the Installation directions. That is all anyone can give you. They are as basic as they come.

    Hey thanks for responding, but I'm obviously in way over my head, because I have read the installation instructions for the Google XML Sitemap plug in and still not 100% how to do it. Can I ask you a few questions and then maybe you'll see how lost I am?
    1. What does it mean "upload the full directory into your wp-content/plugins directory"? Does it just mean installing the plugin?

    Just that. Copy the Plugin package into the /plugins directory.
    But you said in your first post "I've installed the Google XML Sitemaps plugin." If you have it installed and Activated then all that is left:
    4.Open the plugin configuration page, which is located in wp-admin under Options -> XML-Sitemap and build the sitemap the first time. If you get a permission error, check the file permissions of the newly created files.
    5.The plugin will automatically update your sitemap of you publish a post, so theres nothing more to do :)

    Hey thanks a lot for pointing me in the right direction. It's amazing how over complicated one tends to make the unknown. I found the sitemap and everything appears to be in order. Thanks again.
