[Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps] Undefined root element: urlset (3 posts)

    I seem to be getting this error when trying to validate my feed,


    This feed does not validate.

    * line 1, column 335: Undefined root element: urlset [help]
    ... generated-on="May 27, 2008 12:18 pm" --><urlset xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3

    In addition, interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendation.

    * "application/xml" media type is not specific enough [help]

    any suggestions as to why it's not working properly?

    How do you validate your sitemap? Note that the generated sitemap is not a feed in the RSS or Atom standard.

    More information here: http://sitemaps.org/protocol.html

    Best regards,

    Hmmm I must have been on crack yesterday.

    Because...duh...obviously it won't validate, it's not a feed.

    ha, thanks ;)
