Simple Google Sitemap XML
admin settings - does not appear! (5 posts)

    i just installed this plugin, in hopes of replacing the google sitemap generator (which cannot seem to work with large numbers of posts, even when limiting the number of posts in the sitemap). but immediately after installing and activating, there is no where for me to see/set the settings for the plugin.

    i guess that is the ultimate in "very simple admin interface". :-)

    well, since i can't manually generate it, i just edited a post. when i load the sitemap.xml in a browser, i get this:

    XML Parsing Error: no element found
    Location: http://cdrates.monitorbankrates.com/sitemap.xml
    Line Number 10, Column 1:

    the contents of sitemap.xml follows - i believe it is still the last one generated by the other plugin, which is disabled.

    your plugin was actually not even activated, even though i tried. i just checked again, and when i try to activate the plugin, after quite a few seconds, i get this error message:

    "Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error."

    i don't know if it tries to generate the sitemap upon activation. this site has > 200K posts, fyi. but obviously i want to limit the sitemap to a reasonable number, as i could with the google sitemap generator (even though it still doesn't work).
