    First of all cheers to this great plugin XML Sitemap Generator.

    Now the question (probable its having a small answer).

    1. I want to know that should i use sitemap.xml.gz and sitemap.xml at the same time?
    2. Should i ADD both the sitemaps to Google WebMaster Tools and use them at the same time? Right now i have submitted both.

    Right now it shows in GWT that, Total Submitted = Submitted by sitemap.xml + sitemap.xml.gz

    Hi, both file contains the same content. Only diff is that *.gz is the gzip version. I personally prefer the standard file - sitemap.xml
