GWT telling me page-sitemap.xml and category-sitemap.xml not found (6 posts)

    I started using the sitemap part of WordPress SEO plugin, and GWT has picked it up but is giving me two errors. They sound important.

    Screenshot: http://img688.imageshack.us/img688/7575/sitemaperror.jpg

    General HTTP error: 404 not found
    Sitemap: /category-sitemap.xml
    HTTP Error: 404

    General HTTP error: 404 not found
    Sitemap: /page-sitemap.xml
    HTTP Error: 404

    Here is my site: http://www.3dprinter.net

    But, interestingly, both of those sitemaps are in fact on my server. I've looked at them.

    And when I do the GWT sitemap "Test" it gives me no error.

    FYI: my robots.txt file has the following line:
    Sitemap: http://www.3dprinter.net/sitemap_index.xml

    All you have to do are empty cache and pressing save settings button in WordPress SEO xml sitemap section . Then refresh the page, that is it
    This is how I solved my problem in my blog

    When I visited the http://www.3dprinter.net/category-sitemap.xml, there is no errors found. I want to know how did this was resolved.
    My blog (静思学吧) have the same error with category sitemap, which was generated by wordpress seo plugins.

    I fixed this by editing each category via /wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=category

    At the very bottom of the editing page for a category there is a line: Include in sitemap?:

    By default it is set to "Automatic"
    When I changed that to "Always" the category-sitemap.xml was generated and no more 404 error.
