  • HI there

    Yes I want to know as well. I use it on all my sites and it really is the best sitemap plugin but getting concerned that it is not compatible with the latest version of WP.

    Thank you in advance for your response.

    The description page of this plugin will tell you if it’s compatible with your WP version. It tells me it’s compatible with mine which is the latest WP update 4.4.2.

    I’m not concerned so much with compatibility. It’s always been excellent. Mostly wondering whether or not the plugin is being maintained, especially with the recent security exploits.

    You can generate your own sitemap links easily by visiting:
    https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/

    These should crawl through your page and you can either download the page that has been created or open up a notepad/notepad++/any other text editor and save it as “sitemap.xml”.

    Select the option for automatically choosing priorities for each webpage, as this will give the most authority to your Home page/index page, unless you prefer otherwise.

    From here you can then just simply upload your new sitemap to the website by the C-Panel/FileZilla or any FTP uploading method you may use.

    Want More?
    <lastmod> can be added to the sitemap, this shows the search engine robots that may be crawling your website when each of the pages was last updated/modified.

    Syntax:
    <lastmod>2016-02-12T21:47:44+00:00</lastmod>
    Format:YEAR-MON-DAY

    Any more queries, feel free to contact me on my website if you need any help.

    Goodluck.

    @westline the question was “Is this plugin still being updated?” not “Is there a complicated way to generate an XML sitemap?”.

    Anyway… the plugin author seems to be away from any activity from the last year https://profiles.wordpress.org/arnee#content-activity
    So, I think there will not be future updates.

    Maybe someone can try a direct message through http://www.arnebrachhold.de/imprint/
