    Hi Folks,
    Since the last update, Bing keeps reporting at our .xml is submitting 0 URLs.

    Yesterday I made a couple of minor changes to the setting to test if the plugin is working and it seems to be, but again today I got the same report from Bing, that 0 URLs were submitted, despite adding 10 posts in the last 24 hours.
    The normal response used to respond to 18K+ urls submitted….
    Any advice?
    Regards and thanks, Angus

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Strange, the sitemap certainly is not empty. What is the date that Bing sais it last checked the sitemap?

    And what do you see if you use the tool “Fetch as Bingbot”?

    You could also try to submit one of the actual post/page sitemaps directly like https://www.hiskingdomprophecy.com/sitemap-posttype-post.2019.xml and see if that shows the same error.

    And then delete the sitemap.xml index and resubmit it…

    Thanks.
    WP Ping Service is set to let Bing know each time a post is added – which is 10-12 times per day.
    However, I never see any evidence that Bing actually receives or deals with these notification.
    Thus I go to Bing Webmaster > Sitemaps and click “Resubmit” on a daily basis.
    I did it 11 hours ago and submitted our .xml url after posting 2x new posts.
    Now I check Bing Webmaster > Sitemaps the results are:

    
    Last submitted:  4/14/2019
    URLs Submitted:  0
    Type:  Sitemap
    Last Crawl:  4/14/2019
    Status:  Success
    
    As your request I tested Bing Webmaster > Fetch as Bingbot
    
    The .xml url gave Bing Status: "Completed" and is copied below @ 1)  
    
    I posted your suggested URL and Bing Status: "Completed."  A portion of the result is copied below @ 2)
    
    I posted the URL of our past post and Bing Status: "Completed" and it seems to be downloaded 100%.  The same with the main site url.
    
    How this helps,
    Regards and thanks, Angus

    @ravanh
    After continuous monitoring of Bing, I can now confirm that the issue is 100% with Bing and not your plugin.
    Today Bing started to report the correct number of URLs again.
    I also saw that Bing now provides completely new graph outlines, totally different from the last few months, so they must has had some widespread data issues.
    Thanks again for your help and advice.
    Regards,
    Angus
