    I am using the latest version of Yoast and the xml sitemap functionality works for posts, pages and tags but it does not work with categories http://www.stephane-pautrot.com/category-sitemap.xml

    Does anyone have any idea about what is wrong?

    Thank you for any advice.

    Hi again,

    This is amazing: I have been wondering about this category sitemap for weeks and just after posting my question, I noticed I had the same problem with one of my pages.

    Instead of 'automatic detection' in the advanced page options, I chose 'always include" and the page appeared in the sitemap.

    I did the same for all my categories and the category sitemap works now.

    I have no idea what is wrong with the automatic detection though. I am going to try to inform Joost about this.

    Thank you for this! I had a problem where clicking the category sitemap would render a not-found post page.

    I first couldn't find the "advanced" options you wrote about. These option are in the Yoast WP SEO settings at the bottom of the Edit Category page.
