    Hi,

    I’m currently working on a new version of the plugin which will have some major changes. To test this new features, I need your help. You can grab the new version here:

    http://www.arnebrachhold.de/redir/sitemap-dl-beta/

    Please note that it is in a very early stage and not suitable for production sites. Please also note that you have to delete your sitemap.xml and sitemap.xml.gz after installation since they are not used anymore (but break the new plugin).

    What has changed:
    Dynamic sitemap generation
    There are no static files anymore. This will solve 99% of the problems users are having. All content is generated dynamically.

    Sitemap Index File
    To reduce the amount of needed CPU and memory, the sitemap is split into sub-sitemaps. The main sitemap file is now only a index file which links to them. With that change you can have an unlimited number of URLs as long as they are spread over multiple months.

    WordPress MU support
    Without having static files, MU and multi-site support is no problem anymore.

    New developer API
    With the new API, developers can build plugins which can create sub-sitemaps to support an unlimited number of items.

    Installation:

    • Install the plugin normally
    • Delete your existing sitemap.xml and sitemap.xml.gz
    • Browse to http://www.yourblog.com/sitemap.xml if using rewrite permalinks, or index.php?xml_sitemap=index if not.

    At the moment, WordPress 3.0 and PHP 5.2 is the only tested configuration. Please let me know if you have problems with other setups.

  • Google wants its sitemaps to be a physical file.

    CONFIRM!

    Arne,
    Dynamic Sitemap Generation, not work with all hosting services, Dreamhost for example, slow hosting or slow connections. Please insert one option to enable sitemap.xml, and all related files, write to disk.

    Thanks!

    P.S. Arne, please, reply at this issue A.S.A.P.

    Why does Google Websmaster Tools show that the sitemap has errors? It has problems with the break tags as well as the bold tags… It tells me to fix these and resubmit. Can’t I just have an xml file that isn’t formatted in HTML?

    I totally agree. An xml sitemap makes the most sense. Plus it doesn’t matter the format if search engines will not accept them.
