Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » Excluded Categories – Error on Google Search Console

    Arne,

    If you exclude a category and there are no other posts created/modified around that time, the plugin creates an empty sitemap-pt-post XML file. Google throws an error of “Missing XML tag – This required tag is missing. Please add it and resubmit.”

    If I disable the exclusion and reload the offending sitemap-pt-post XML file, the posts show and, albeit posts I want to exclude, the file is now valid.

    Thanks for a great plugin!!!
