    Hello people,
    I'm using wp Version 3.1.2& Yoast WordPress SEO.

    When I go to SEO dashboard and try to Re-build XML the site map, I see
    14:17:53: Starting to generate output.
    14:17:53: 18 posts of type post found.
    14:17:53: 39 posts of type page found.
    14:17:53: 9 posts of type slidedeck found.
    14:17:53: 40 posts of type slidedeck_slide found.
    14:17:53: 1 posts of type smartblock found.
    14:17:53: 13 taxonomy entries of type category found.
    14:17:53: 0 taxonomy entries of type post_tag found.
    14:17:53: Sitemap successfully (re-)generated with 121 URLs.
    14:17:53: Sitemap successfully gzipped.
    14:17:54: Successfully notified of updated sitemap: Google Yahoo! Bing Ask.com

    But when I go to my wp route directory, no site map file is there. Neither google webmaster are able to read that directory, so, site map is not being generated.

    Dose that a permission error? it's not showing an error, what's going there??

    The newest version of WP SEO stores the sitemap in your uploads folder, in the wp-seo folder. It then adds a rule to your robots.txt file to tell search engines where the sitemap is.

    Well it's not really 100% working like that but close, but even better, 0.4 won't need any hardcoded files anymore.
