[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Category Site Map gives 404 - others are fine (5 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.4.1
    WordPress SEO version: 1.2.7

    I did this:
    Enabled XML Site Maps

    I expected the plugin to do this:
    Generate the sitemaps for me.

    Instead it did this:
    It gives a 404 on the Category Site Map only.

    All the other site maps work fine.

    Thanks! :-)

    try this

    forcing the category to be included fixed my issue , jump in the cat / tag editor and set the categories and tags to always include.

    Thanks for that work around... seems to work...

    And thanks for writing up the tutorial... you might want to add that you have to change this for each category to have them included...
