Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » About the option Add sitemap URL to the virtual robots.txt file

    In the plugin’s Basic Options, an option is Add sitemap URL to the virtual robots.txt file.

    And it says “The virtual robots.txt generated by WordPress is used. A real robots.txt file must NOT exist in the site directory!”

    What does this mean? I have a robots.txt file (which I think is a must) in my site’s root directory, so do I need to disable this option? And is this option important?

    Thanks!
