    I'd like to create a custom module, but not sure where to start.

    Essentially, I'd like to create a sitemap that cross joins a custom taxonomy (locations) with a custom post type (services).

    The resulting URL would look like this: http://domain.com/custom_post_type/custom_taxonomy

    Another thing that I have to consider is that there's a couple thousand of my custom post type and a few hundred of the custom taxonomy....which would yield more than 50,000 URLs.

    If you already have a custom post type and a custom taxonomy that are linked together, you simply need to filter the permalink for that special taxonomy to be http://domain.com/custom_post_type/custom_taxonomy

    Once done the current taxonomy sitemap will handle the rest, no need for a custom module. The challenge here is to split the taxonomy sitemap.

    Is this a setting in the plugin? Is there any more documentation with more information so I can figure it out?

    Would a custom module need to be setup to break them up into acceptable XML sitemaps that don't exceed the 50k limit?

    To clarify, I've altered my permalink structure so that my custom post type URLs are as follows:


    So it results in something like this for this sample data:

    CPT Post Names: Dry Cleaning, Ironing
    Taxonomy Terms: Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego

    I need to make sure all of these URLs make it into the sitemap in some way.
