[Plugin: Google News Sitemap Generator] Sitemap doesn't update after schedule posts publish (6 posts)

    The sitemap does not update after scheduled posts are published.

    So anytime a scheduled post publishes, I have to manually republish the sitemap. Anyway to make the sitemap update when scheduled posts publish?

    I am having the same problem. Using WP v2.9.2., plugin v1.5. The plugin doesn't seem to update or notify Google correctly on posts that are scheduled to publish automatically in the future, it only works for posts published immediately. Did you ever find a solution?

    WP v3.0.1
    plugin v1.5

    I'm having the same problem. Any ideas on a solution or an alternative plugin?

    This sounds like it could be a cron issue. I recently had an issue where WordPress was resolving a "missed schedule" for future posts. I added:

    define('ALTERNATE_WP_CRON', true);

    to wp-config.hp

    And now my posts are not missing their schedule.

    I wonder if it's the same for regenerating a site map. I don't know. I thought I'd mention it here and see if that might help.

    Thanks tonyzeoli. Researching ALTERNATE_WP_CRON, it appears that it helps fix missed schedules but does little if the schedule is already publishing articles correctly.

    What I have here are scheduled articles being published at the right time but the sitemap not being updated. It's almost like the Google News Sitemap Generator does not respond to the transition_post_status hook even though the plug-in code contains an add_action() for it.
