Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » [Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps] PLEASE! Can anyone help?

  • Hey there- I’ve spent the last 7 hours on this problem w no resolution, I’m wondering if anyone here has one: When generating the map I get an error msg “There was a problem writing your zipped sitemap file. Make sure the file exists and is writable.” when I preview my sitemap.xml from my file manager (FatCow host) it takes me to (no www) and the page is blank in Chrome and in Firefox gives error msg 805303f4. When cut n paste the sitemap url (WITH the www)I get what looks sort of like a site map but the heading “This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.” that’s in google Google Chrome- in Firefox I get a sitemap that fatcow uploaded to try to solve my problem (not so much)
    It seems that my sitemap.xml does not point to my site with the WWW and even when I load it that way I get a sitemap generated by some 3rd party in Firefox (fatcow support used another sight- they dont wanna hear it about WP, no help at all) and a sitemap with no style in Chrome.
    I’ve gone round and round in circles on this one, followed the directions in other post on forum and any thing that came up on google, I’ve uninstalled and re-installed it 4 times at least. Don’t know where to go from here. grrrrr.. Anyone? Please? I’m begging…\

    My Website is http://WWW.Nourishment.US

  • One more thing! At the top of my settings page it says: Your sitemap was last built on September 3, 2012 11:37 pm
    but I only just downloaded it today??? when go to the edit for sitemap.xml it displays the following:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href=""?><!-- generator="wordpress/3.4.1" -->
    <!-- sitemap-generator-url="" sitemap-generator-version="3.2.8" -->
    <!-- generated-on="September 3, 2012 11:37 pm" -->
    <urlset xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="" xmlns="">	<url>

    Then a bunch of pages and priority settings.

    Hi, I tried to check your sitemap but returned 404-page not found. Is the plugin active still? Anyway, from your description it seems like a file permission issues on your server. Also you don’t need to edit the xml sitemap manually, its all automatic.
