[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Google Webmaster says site map is not html (2 posts)

    I posted a reply to an earlier discussion but didn't realize it was marked as resolved so I thought I'd open another.

    When I upload my sitemap to google webmaster tools it says "Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead."

    I tired disabling all my plug ins and reverting to twentyeleven but got the same message.

    any clues?

    Found the problem. My site was set to redirect from http://www.sitename.com to http://sitename.com, but was in google webmaster tools as http://www.sitename.com. Picky picky! Changing the name in webmaster tools worked.
