    I am gettin the following errors in webmaster tools after submitting yoast site maps.
    Sitemap: eastbostontaxicab.com/attachment-sitemap.xml
    Value: http://eastbostontaxicab.com/?attachment_id=8725/

    The thing is my robots.txt file is real real simple.
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/
    Disallow: /wp-content/plugins/

    I want as much of my site crawled as possible.. especially images. I am sure there is somthing simple I am not seeing here. What is it?

    I think again I am not explaining myself properly. I understand now why I am getting this error. My xml sitemap includes post attachments but my robots.txt blocks google from allowing access to these attachments correct?

    I would like it so that google indexes all of my images stored in the media library whether or not they are attached to a post. Is there a way to do that? I understand that it may harm my seo to have attachment urls indexed so is there a way to do both?
