RPS Sitemap Generator

A lightweight XML sitemap generator with Multisite awareness.

This is a simple, lightweight XML sitemap generator designed with the end-user in mind. It provides a familiar interface for viewing new or updated posts and making last minute changes before updating your sitemap. To top it off the plugin integrates seamlessly with Multisite (each blog in your network has its own unique sitemap). This truly is the bare-bone essentials -- what you need -- how you want it -- your life made simple.

To update your sitemap

After installing and activating the plugin, a new menu item will appear under Tools labeled Sitemap Generator (you must have import access to see it). Visit the Sitemap Generator tool and click either "Generate Sitemap" if you've yet to generate one, or "Update Sitemap" if you have. A fresh sitemap will be generated at the location you specified in your sitemap options (/sitemap.xml by default).
