    Hi,
    Great plugin. Read something about sitemaps not working (in combination with redirects).
    Does it output the sitemap? Are there do’s and don’ts to be aware of? And is it better to use Rankmath or Yoast?

    Hey @handig,

    you can use what you like.

    Simply Static fixed the bug with XML-Sitemaps from Rankmath within the latest update, but Yoast should also work fine now.

    Best regards,

    Hi,
    Thanks a lot for the plugin. I stubmled on it before but never had a concrete usage for it. Now I do and it really works great.

    Initially I couldn’t generate a sitemap with either. At the end I didn’t get it working with Rankmath but it worked with Yoast.

    These were the steps I followed:

      I have to Include an Addtional URL (absolute) to the Sitemap URL of Yoast (or Rankmath) in the Simply Static Settings to get it generated.
      Then I got a XML parse error after uploading the generated files. The Rankmath and Yoast sitemaps are referring to a main-sitemap.xsl. I couldn’t get it working with Rankmath. With Yoast I got it working by Including Additional Files …/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/css/main-sitemap.xsl

    I’m not sure if the XML parse error is a problem in getting your sitemap picked up but if it is I would use Yoast. I prefer Rankmath though.

    Do you know of a way to get the Rankmath main-sitemap.xsl generated at the right place?

    Hey @handig,

    I will take a closer look into that, but in my last tests, it worked without any problems.

    Normally it’s not even required to add the XML sitemap to the additional URLs these days, Simply Static will pick that up automatically and include each sitemap itself.

    Best regards,
    Patrick
