[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] News sitemap not including custom post types (3 posts)

    I have the News Sitemap plugin installed, and it generates the correct file, but does not include my custom categories. As these include all our reviews, these are not being indexed in Google News like the rest of our content.

    I have 'XML News Sitemap' panel on the WordPress SEO dashboard page, I've clicked enable, and any changes I make into the fields are saved - EXCEPT the section "Post types to include in news sitemap" - whenever I select something there and then hit save, these are all de-selected.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I'm still having this problem. I try to select custom post types from the box, hit save, and all options are cleared. This is an issue as Google News is not picking up any of our reviews which used to attract a lot of traffic to our site.

    Does anyone have any thoughts? I still can't select custom post types to be included in my news sitemap. If I can manually set it in the database to ensure they're included I'd do that but I'm not sure where to look! Thanks everyone.
