[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Page with Advanced > 301 Redirect URL not in page-sitemap.xml (3 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.4.1
    WordPress SEO version:

    In order to create a menu item that goes straight to an html page outside of my wordpress install, but on the same domain, I created a blank page and gave it a WP title/permalink and in the WordPress SEO by Yoast > Advanced section, specified the 301 Redirect URL.

    I expected the plugin to make an entry in the page-sitemap.xml for this page.

    Instead, neither the page permalink or the 301 Redirect URL are added to the sitemap. I tried settings:
    Include in Sitemap: Always include and
    Sitemap Priority: 1 - Highest priority
    ...but the page is still not included in the sitemap. Am I missing something? Is it designed to include either of these?

    See site at travelswithmyhat.com, the page in question is "Book Preview"

    OK I found this thread http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wordpress-seo-by-yoast-indexing-pages-outside-of-the-db?replies=2

    SO apparently not. But just wondered if because of the page/301 redirect whether that would work!
