  • Hi Joost, awesome job on this 1.2 update!

    I have a similar (related?) observation on the page-sitemap.xml. While post-sitemap.xml displays fine, the page-sitemap.xml shows an error as follows:

    XML Parsing Error: undefined entity
    Line Number 48, Column 21:
    <image:title>Stra&szlig;enszenen aus Japan</image:title>

    Cheers –

    Same problem for me.
    I can see only the category sitemap but post and pages sitemap are not accesible anymore.

    I tried to change the server permission but nothing is changed.

    Any suggestion?


    Just started a new thread without seeing this one. Google Webmaster Tools displays an error on page sitemap, refuses to index.

    Same problem here. Figured it out special characters aren’t encoded or replaced anymore, in my case an & in an alt tag of an image. Not sure why the preg_replace doesn’t work anymore in inc/class-sitemaps.php.

    However replacing the following line (545) in inc/class-sitemaps.php fixed the issue here, maybe Yoast can comment on this what is happening:

    $output .= "\t\t\t<image:caption>".preg_replace( "[^A-Za-z0-9\s\.]", "", $img['alt'] )."</image:caption>\n";


    $output .= "\t\t\t<image:caption>".htmlspecialchars($img['alt'])."</image:caption>\n";

    Fixed the XML!

    Yeah the latter has other issues, but I’ve now found out how to get around those, so i’ll be fixing this in the next release.

    Could any of you try the development version? I think it’s fixed in that. You can download the development version from here, or you can download it directly here.

    You fixed it. Dev version works great!

    Yep fixed it, thanks again!

    Awesomeness. Ok this’ll be in 1.2.3, probably later today.

    Unfortunately i’m still have the problem.

    I went back to version 1.9 waiting for the 1.2.3.

    For your information, including the settings (in version 1.2) are not saved properly when are selected.

    treelabs, please read this thread and follow the instructions there. If the issue persists, open a new thread and try to formulate your problem using the template in that post. I can’t do anything based on what you’re telling me here.

    Hi Joost, just wanted to give you a heads-up that in version 1.2.3, I still have the same error as described in my post #2 in this thread.

    Thanks, and best regards –

    Any suggestion?

    Thnaks in advance for your response.


    Hi Joost,

    I still have the same problem as Norbert.

    If I use the workaround from Pascal Dreissen then it works. Do you think you could take a look please and check? Now my sitemap is ok but only after the change in Pascal’s post.

    Thanks a lot for your great work,
