    Trying to access /blog/sitemapindex.xml produces a WordPress “this is embarasing” 404 page. The control panel says “It appears that no sitemap has been generated yet, or you have recently cleared the sitemap log”.

    Rewrite Rules:

    RewriteRule ^/blog/(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) /wordpress/$1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^/blog/(.*\.php)$ /wordpress/$1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^/blog/(.*) /wordpress/index.php [L]

    Have you tried flushing rewrite rules by going to Settings > Permalinks?

    Is that something where WordPress manages an .htacess file for you? We don’t have .htaccess enabled, we set rewrite rules manually in the host config. Are there rewrite rules that I need to set for this plugin to work?

    No, actually. BWP GXS works with the default rewrite rules, whether in .htaccess file or host config but it needs some rules stored in database, and in rare cases those are not automatically stored.

    Did going to Settings > Permalinks help?

    Thanks! I tried going to Settings > Permalinks, but there was no flush option. I did save changes though and that must have triggered the flush, because it now shows up.

    same problem
    any help?
