  • Hi Graham, I am having the same problem. Lots of urls ending in numbers that DO NOT exist. Hope they fixed that soon.

    ALl the link in your sitemap (even ending in a number) seem to be valid posts and pages.

    Hi Graham , just want to share it you that if you use the gz version there will be no additional non existing url.

    Hi Webjunk, trust me the plugin is adding non existing urls.

    The problem seems to be intermittent; it comes and goes… I’ve seen it a couple of times before, but never been able to pin it down. Crowly, do you have a live site which is currently affected? Thanks, Graham

    Manually rebuilding the sitemap sometimes gets rid of the bad entries, but I’m pretty sure I’ve seen them generated in manual builds too.

    @crowly: It makes no difference whether it’s the .gz version or not.

    @webjunk: There are no articles on my site ending in a number. All such links are invalid when they appear and give 404’s when accessed unless Smart404 happens to spot a match in part of the URL.

    Hi Graham, when I stopped building the xml version at all due to the non existing url. In the .gz version everything is fine for me.

    Now Google is having problems with the sitemaps lol

    I am now having problems with the .gz as well…

    Anyone have a remedy for this ?
