  • Found out the actual error, the category sitemap that is listed in the main sitemap does no exist so is defaulting to a 404 page. Does anybody know why the Yoast plugin in causing the category sitemap to fail?

    Do you have strip category base on, by any chance?

    same issue for me
    and yes “strip category base” is on

    Please advise.

    Yes, Strip Category is on

    My sitemap is back now although I cannot see all my categories in it even though I have selected Index for each category, (Zolder, try visiting the setup page for categories and ensure that auto detect is set to index), maybe because there are no articles in those categories yet that its not in the sitemap?

    Yes. It works now.
    In the Category BO, I set up the last two “Yoast” fields in
    – always index
    – always include in the sitemap

    thank you

    Try the development version for that last bit:

    You can download the development version from here, or you can download it directly here.

    Thanks for all the help
