Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Edit sitemaps

  • Resolved bababooey17


    Is there a way to edit the sitemaps? There’s some URL’s that are incorrect. I tried to SFTP in but I can’t seem to find the sitemap to open and edit. SEO Yoast does not seem to give any control over the sitemap at all. Where is the file stored? I can’t find it anywhere, not seeing it in the root folder.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    @bababooey17 The sitemap that is generated by Yoast SEO is not a physical file that can be viewed via FTP or a file manager. But rather it is generated dynamically upon request.

    You can control what content types are included in the sitemap in the settings located in the SEO>Search Appearance area. To customize what types of pages or content are included in the sitemap you would need to perform the following steps:

      • In WordPress, go to SEO>Search Appearance
      • Click on the appropriate tab to add or remove certain post types from the search results. Removing a post type from the search results will also remove them from the sitemap.
      • Click ‘Save Changes.’

    We also have additional information on configuring your XML Sitemap located at the following link:
