Support » Plugin: XML Sitemap & Google News feeds » [Plugin: XML Sitemap & Google News Sitemap Feeds] Titles with tags

  • Resolved ploums


    I’ve started using the plugin with 3.1 (apparently, this is not version-related, though) and found a small improvement.

    When titles contain an HTML tag (like <b></b>), the generated sitemap-news.xml is not acceptable by Google.

    It suggest the following change to the feed-sitemap-news.php file.

    on line #64 with
    echo strip_tags(get_the_title(get_the_ID()));

    It works on my own blog. You can check a sample output of the modified plugin in

    Apart from that, the plugin started working quite soon. I would have prefered to see a more prominent information about removing the old XML files and a more obvious information of where the generated files go (a chapter in the FAQ would be welcome). Good plugin. Thanks.

    Thanks for your contribution. It will make it into the next release 🙂

    About removing old XML files, it’s step 4 in the installation instructions … but it will not hurt to stress it again in the FAQ’s 😉
