Support » Plugin: XML Sitemaps » About the bug of the plugin Google XML Sitemaps

  • kurora28


    On the setting screen of the plugin Google XML Sitemaps, the ID of the front page (top page) of the fixed page is automatically entered in the column of “Do not include posts (individual articles) of Excluded Items:”.
    If you update the created post page or fixed page, the ID will be entered without permission. Even if you delete the ID and update the settings, the ID will be entered again.

    Is it a bug in the plugin? The plugin was recently updated to the latest version Google XML Sitemaps (version 4.1.3 to 4.1.4), but the problem is not fixed.
    Is it related to the theme? The theme used is THE THOR.

    Is there a way to fix the problem so that the ID cannot be entered without permission?
    Should I use another XML Sitemaps plugin?
    In that case, please let us know if you have a recommended XML Sitemaps plugin. Please give us a reason for your recommendation. Please also give us a recommended setting method.

    @kurora28 I archived your 3rd topic about the same thing. This is the right place to ask, before in the Everything else WordPress forum was the wrong place.

    And what is the answer to his question? I have the same problem, my homepage ID is automatically added to excluded pages. What’s more, the page ID of my custom 404 page that I did exclude isn’t – at least Google still complains about a 404 on that page.

    Same issue here.

    @kurora28 / @ulim / @faxon22: can you please make sure that you are not excluding any item in robots.txt? Our plugin will read the robots.txt and add excluded items into the exclude items text box automatically.



    Here is my robots.txt:

    I don’t see anything suspicious in there. Somehow the ID of my homepage gets added to excluded pages. When I remove it and save, it is gone for a while, but re-appears at some point.

    @auctollo: Robots.txt on my site. Nothing has been modified in the default state.

    Is it a plugin bug?
    Please tell me how to fix it.
