Support » Plugin: XML Sitemap & Google News feeds » No sitemap-news.xml being generated

  • Resolved Clint


    I operate a WordPress 3.5 site at and the sitemap-news.xml file is not being generated. Troubleshooting I’ve done so far:

    – reinstalled the plugin
    – resaved the permalink structure
    – “seeded” a chmod 777 file named sitemap-news.xml into the root web directory
    – updated several posts to refresh the content and force the sitemap update

    None of these steps have helped. I would love any feedback you could give?

    Thanks in advance for your time!

    Hi avrant, it looks like you switched to another sitemap plugin? If you still need help with XML & Google News Sitemap Feeds you’ll need to deactivate the other one (it cannot run together with another xml sitemap plugin) and make sure that you delete all these static files from your site root: robots.txt, sitemap.xml and sitemap-news.xml

    Then try again because the feeds are there and working as you can see on and 🙂

    You are a genius. I had no idea that it worked that way. Great plug-in and thanks for the help! I just voted it up (as working for v3.5) in the plug-ins page and also made a small donation.
