Support » Plugin: Simple Sitemap - Create a Responsive HTML Sitemap » Can’t exclude specific pages/posts in new version!

  • I used Simple Sitemap for years and used to love it. The free version no longer lets me exclude specific pages/posts. For example, I have several thank-you pages and other content that absolutely should not show up in my HTML sitemap. The shortcode that used to exclude those page IDs doesn’t function anymore.

    I also could not get support for the issue (need to buy the Pro version for that). That’s a bit risky, in my opinion, because there’s no guarantee that the issue will resolve itself simply by paying for the Pro version.

    I have deleted this plugin. I now use a plugin called WP Sitemap Page — the free version works like a charm!

    Thanks for the tip. I too am very disappointed at the removal of the exclude feature.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback.

    I should point out that you definitely do NOT need to buy the pro version to get support. In the free version just go to Simple Sitemap > Support and fill out the form to send us an email. Simple as that!

    And, just to be clear, the free plugin now includes features that were ONLY available in the pro version. It’s not just a case that a free feature was taken out and added to the pro version.

    As you’ve used the plugin for years, supporting the plugin by purchasing the pro version is a nice way of thanking the developer for the hard work they’ve put into the plugin for the last several years. This amounts to many 100’s of hours over the last several years.
