    Hi @eyadwp,

    Could you please try adding the sitemap.xml file to the exclusion list in Hummingbird.

    Hi @eyadwp,

    Please go to Hummingbird – Caching – Page Caching, there will be a section called Exclusions. There should already be an entry for sitemap\.xml, but if it’s not there, or the file is named differently, you should add that name there as well.

    Hello @eyadwp,

    Trust all is well!

    We’ve not heard from you in a while. I’ve marked this ticket as resolved for now, but if you need anything else at all, we’re here for you, please just reopen the ticket or create a new one.

    Have a good day!


    I had a similar problem. Hummingbird adds a HTML comment at the beginning of document which I think causes the problems in e. g. Google Console.

    For Yoast SEO plugin’s sitemaps I’ve added 2 entries
    In Caching > Exclusions > Url strings


    note the escaped slash at the beginning of each string

    Seems to resolve the problem.
