Support » Plugin: Make Paths Relative » Make Paths Relative conflicts with Yoast Sitemap feature

    I am using the Pantheon Workflow (Dev > Test > Live) and Make Paths Relative (MPR) is super useful to keep links to images, and urls relative from an environment to another.
    Recently I found an issue, however.
    When MPR is activated for all content types, then the Sitemaps generated by Yoast plugin will contain only “relative” paths which are a serious issue for SEO. Indeed Google guidance for sitemaps recommends full absolute URLs, and not relative URLs.
    I saw that a previous release supposedly tackled this issue, but the benefit is not visible in the latest release of MPR.

    Replication steps :

    Install Yoast, activate it and enable Sitemap
    Install MPR, activate it, and check all to make paths relative
    Go to your sitemaps URL
    Actual result: Sitemaps urls are relative
    Expected result: Sitemaps urls should be absolute

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]
