    I’m seeking recommendations of a Google Sitemap plugin that works with multisite and W3 Total Cache. Thanks!

    Yoast’s WordPress SEO plugin has one built in.

    @Ipstenu- Thanks. That looks like it might be overkill just to get the sitemap, and I’m really happy with the SEO features built into my Headway Theme- wouldn’t want to add something to the mix that might conflict. My sites come up on page 1 or 2 from the targeted search queries.

    Maybe the plug-in “Better WordPress Google XML Sitemaps” :

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bwp-google-xml-sitemaps/

    It’s based on “Google XML Sitemaps”, and adds multi-site support.

    I found pretty much any XML sitemap plugin worked, if I activated it per-site. If you’re trying to make one master sitemap for ALL sites on your network, that’s a slightly different thing.

    @tgeorge- Tried it and having issues with W3TC described here.

    How would that work with one sitemap file for 2 sites?

    I’m not sure what you’re asking. No two sites have the same sitemap.

    Unless you’re trying to make ONE sitemap to have the posts from ALL your sites, a Sitemap is individual to your site.

    @Ipstenu- Thanks- I think I get it. I’m just really cranky from having to spend so much time with compatibility issues of multisite + W3TC + plugins, and without a solution. One day I hope to move the sub-site to its own WP installation, but fear that’s going to be like surgically separating Siamese twins.

    Somewhat 😉

    If you don’t have to worry about the users, it’s pretty easy. And either way, you can’t (easily) copy over site options so you have to re-do your widgets etc.

    Content is easy, though.

    Got the plugin Better WordPress Google XML Sitemaps working with some super support from the author.

    Yep- I’ve done it before, but is does take some time for an O.C. person to get it all put back together right. I wonder how a 2nd WordPress install would be setup on my VPS at liquidweb? It’s managed, so I’m sure they can set it up for me- I just wonder about the location on the server.

    Anyway, this thread is resolved. Thanks to all!

    I tend to just spin them up myself. Make a DB, upload the files, have a beer.
