    I'm not sure if anyone else has had this issue, but for some reason my Google News Sitemap I set up through WordPress SEO is now returning a Page Not Found error.

    It's been working great up until today. If anyone's had this issue and know how to fix, please advice.

    all the other sitemaps are showing up, but the news sitemap still returns the error. only frustrating since my site just got added to Google News today and it's been working perfectly until today.

    for anyone else having this issues, you just need to go into the installed plugins section of wordpress and hit settings for WordPress SEO.

    I just disabled the News Sitemap function, Saved that and then Enabled it again and saved and problem solved.

    I am having the same problem. Updated to 1.1.4 and added the news module. It shows up in the dashboard, but I get a not found error when I try to access it. Also Google Webmaster Tools returns the same error. Any help on this will be greatly appreciated. PS: Tried the off-on solution and it didn't work. I'm also using nginx, which may or may not be contributing.
