    Go to settings -> permalinks and hit save, see if that changes things?

    Hi Joost,

    When I hit the button XML Sitemap, I only get a 404 page not found.

    Saving permalinks did not work for me.

    I temporarily disabled all my other plugins and it still doesn't work.

    I am using WordPress 3.5, Twentyeleven and your update.

    Help, please.

    I've got the same problem on all of my WordPress sites, it used to work find but over the last month or so its stopped working.

    I'm running a fresh install of WP, the latest version & the latest version of the plugin.

    I've tried re-saving permalinks, and also switching off the sitemap, saving settings and switching it back on again.

    The sitemap file just 404's and there is no xml generated in the root folder (I've checked via FTP).

    I'd rather not have to install a separate plug-in for the sitemap so would appreciate a little help on this one!

    Cheers :)
