Error msg Line 29 Column 2 (1 post)

    First, I absolutely love plug in and share with everyone I know. Thanks!
    Currentl, I am receiving the following error msg in g webmaster tools when reviewing site map submitted:
    XML Parsing Error: junk after document element
    Location: /sitemap_index.xml
    Line Number 29, Column 2: <meta name="robots" content="index,follow,noodp,noydir">
    In the "Indexation" menu, I must have inadvertently checked the boxes for "add noodp" and "add noydir" but have unchecked hoping that was creating the issue. I have waited a few days but current site map (generated today) is still showing same error code. I have gone through all posts/pages but cannot find one that has these options checked individually.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks again and in advance for your help.
