Simple Google Sitemap

Creates an XML Sitemap, containing Homepage, Articles and Pages



This plugin is similar to Arne Brachold's (arnee) Google XML Sitemaps Plugin. When i ran into trouble from its huge hunger for memory, I decided to write another Google Sitemapper, including all important features, but less memory usage. It is also my first WP plugin ever. Hope you like and use it.
