    I completed the xml sitemap settings and it says it is generated and to click here to see it. When i click on that link, i go to a google page that says oops this link is broken. Google webmaster says my url, http://flakeysfishingcharters.com/sitemap.xml is a 404 error.

    1. http://.../sitemap.xml is not the URL, it is http://.../sitemap_index.xml -- which also 404s for you, but just to be clear.

    2. The request doesn't seem to be reaching WordPress and the plugin as it's returning a 404 generated by Apache. This is something to do with your server setup not passing .xml$ requests to WordPress.

    3. You do not have WordPress pretty permalinks enabled anyway so the sitemap_index.xml internal rewrite will not work.

    Thanks Jon. I am just an end user on a cms that was handed over to me a few days ago by my web developer. I will forward this info to him to address the issue.
