[Plugin: Google Places] Invalid XML Tag

  • Hey Patrick, I had the same issue but didnt use this plugin. I did it all manually by going to http://www.geositemapgenerator.com/. The issue you are having seems to be the same across the board and most sites are saying to just ignore it. Seems to be a longer standing bug with Google but they say that it doesn’t effect their ability to crawl the site and see you .kml file.

    I have fixed the plugin by editing the following file:-

    google-places/googleplaces_settings_html.php

    Find the following lines of code and ‘comment’ them out.

    //                $geo_sitemap_xml[]='<geo:geo>';
         //                    $geo_sitemap_xml[]='<geo:format>kml</geo:format>';
         //                $geo_sitemap_xml[]='</geo:geo>';

    Support for the ‘geo’ tag has been removed by Google, so it’s no longer required.
