Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » sitemap-news.xml is blank

  • Nothing appears on the /sitemap-news.xml page. I have included categories with many posts but none appearing at that page. How do I get this top work correctly and writ the post links to that page? All other settings appear to be correct.

  • Same Problem here 🙁

    Ditto here. On Google Search Console, on the sitemaps page it has this error for the news sitemap:

    “General HTTP error: 404 not found”

    I also suffered a blank sitemap, although the plugin’s sitemap generating feature worked before I converted my site to SSL. So I turned off the Dynamically Generate Sitemap option and the plugin began generating useable sitemaps again. The script that dynamically generates a sitemap when the site is visited by a search engine was apparently unable to run after the SSL conversion. This means my sitemap is now a static file that needs to be updated when I make new posts to my blog. It’s not much of a problem, just takes one click of a button.
