Support » Plugin: The SEO Framework » Sitemap not generated

  • Resolved wjadevries


    I just setup the plugin in WordPress and then clicked on “show base sitemap”, but got a 404 page not found.
    In this archive I found a post suggesting to reset the permalinks, but unfortunately that didn’t help.
    So there’s no sitemap xml on my site whatsoever.
    What to do?

    Ps: I don’t have Yoast installed or Easy… mentioned in another post.
    There are basically no other plugins except insert headers and footers to put in the google tag manager code.

    We use a new type of sitemap generation. So, since TSF v4.0, all the posts on this subject are outdated.

    With that, since this system is new, I have no data on why it might not work. Do you have a link for us, so we can start investigating? Thanks!



    My site is at
    In the meantime I installed another plugin that successfully generated a sitemap.xml in that location.
    So the sitemap you’ll be seeing there is not from your plugin.

    Hello again!

    Thank you for the link!

    I found the issue: The sitemap doesn’t work on WordPress subdomain installations.

    I’ll see if I can address this for the next update:

    Until then, I’m glad you’ve found a workaround in the meantime. Cheers 🙂

    Hi, I had the same problem that I couldn’t open my sitemap.xml page. But if I logged out of my website, then it works. You’ve probably tested it, but that’s a tip.

    Best regards

    Hi Jan-Ove,

    Thanks for sharing your insights! I hope it’ll help others facing that issue. 🙂

    Now, the issue we have here is because I forgot to add a “case insensitive” check while working with mixed-case strings. So, logging out will work (which indicates a caching issue).

    The subdirectory in question ends with capital letters TCO, which explains this bug. I already have a patch ready, but I had to postpone releasing it due to personal circumstances.

    TSF v4.0.2 has just been released, and the sitemap should work with your site after you update to it! Cheers 🙂

    I’ve notice a detail that may be useful for some. My website is multilingual, with Polylang. And the a sitemap is generated on the fly for each language. So for example, in the spanish version of the site, the sitemap can be seen at URL/es/sitemap.xml
