Support » Fixing WordPress » [Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps] Excluded Categories should exclude the category slug as well

  • Hi Arne,

    Under “Sitemap content”, if you have “Include categories” checked, and you also have a few categories checked off under “Excluded categories“, the checked category indexes for “Excluded categories” should be excluded as well.

    But right now, they are not.

    Please fix this for the next version of your plugin!

  • At first I thought the category exclusion was being ignored, but you are right, the posts in the category are excluded, but the category index page still shows up in the sitemap file. This makes it harder to hide things, expecially since the .xml file is viewable by anybody (similar to robots.txt)

    I guess a workaround would be to Disallow the excluded category in the robots.txt file (without revealing its whole name), and allow only the search engines access using .htaccess (this is a pain).

    Fixed in the next version, thanks for reporting.
