    Hello,

    Since the option to set the number of entries per page has been removed with Yoast SEO v7.0, there’s been a new filter introduced in order to control the number of entries per page in the sitemap, which is wpseo_sitemap_entries_per_page

    You can view it in the changelog here — https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/#developers

    Thanks Michael, it removed 400 posts from my site in a night from google which is a disaster.

    How can I use this code? What should I add to functions?

    Thanks

    By default, Yoast SEO always includes 1000 items in the XML sitemap. If you have more than 1000 items in the XML sitemap, a separated child sitemap will be created automatically. So, you really won’t need to use the filter to increase the maximum sitemap entries per page as this will cause loading time issue.

    “By default, Yoast SEO always includes 1000 items in the XML sitemap.”
    That’s why in version 6 I changed it to 2000.

    ” If you have more than 1000 items in the XML sitemap, a separated child sitemap will be created automatically. So, you really won’t need to use the filter to increase the maximum sitemap entries per page as this will cause loading time issue.”

    Did you see my screenshot? 400 of my posts de indexed in a night from google because of update version 7!

    How can I fix this?

    We have seen your screenshot and the issue you’re experiencing isn’t related to the URLs that you have in your sitemap. Your sitemap still includes all of your URLs but in a separate child sitemap.

    Unfortunately, we are unable to confirm why Google dropped your URLs from its index list. We recommend you to reach out the Google webmaster team for assistance. You can find them here.

    Of course it’s related to Yoast update!

    Rolled back to version 6 and again 1340 urls submitted:
