Scalable Sitemaps

Description

Scalable Sitemaps is a WordPress plugin that will provide fast, clean and efficient xml-compliant sitemaps for your website. Many sitemap and SEO plugins do not have great compatibility with large sites and will take a long time to generate a sitemap (if it gets generated at all). This solves that problem by using some basic raw connections to your database and generating simple sitemaps in real-time as they are requested.
