Simple Google Sitemap XML

Description

Simple Google Sitemap XML generates a valid Google XML sitemap, which can then be used with Google’s Webmaster Tools.

This plugin is meant to be simple. It just works!

You can now tweak the following settings in the Options panel :
* enable/disable priority and/or frequency
* enable/disable the tags
* enable/disable the categories
* choose to store your sitemap XML file in the root of your website or in the plugin’s directory

Every time you publish a new post/page or delete a post/page, a new sitemap gets created automatically which means you don’t have to do anything !

This plugin is offered to you by iTx Technologies, développement Web à Montréal
