[resolved] Cannot complete building sitemap since WP3.1.2 update (5 posts)

    Seems like it stopped working after the upgrade to WordPress 3.1.2 but could have been before this but it was right around the same time.

    Doesn't appear to be a memory issue as others are also appearing to have problems and I have WordPress and MySQL set for extra memory (I have the plugin set for 35MB). I've adjusted wp-config and another file on the server for more memory.

    Trying to manually rebuild leads to a white screen. I've repaired and optimized the database, still no-go.

    Seems i have the same problem: when i'm trying to open sitemap, wordpress displays an error "ERROR: sitemap is not a valid feed template.".

    Plugin version 4.0b4

    I've temporarily switched to using Google News Sitemap since the current version of Google XML Sitemaps isn't working.

    I may switch to WordPress SEO by Yoast to generate the sitemap in the near future but it's quite a bit of set-up.

    @WordPress SEO@ seems to be a good solution, thanks

    In the Google XML Sitemaps settings is a checkbox for:
    [] Add sitemap URL to the virtual robots.txt file.

    Uncheck that box. Once I unchecked that box I was able to manually rebuild my sitemap like before.

    I left the existing robots.txt file in the root of my website which contains:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /images/
    sitemap: http://www.hawaii247.com/sitemap.xml
