I’m getting Warnings in Google Webmaster Tools for this site http://wpsites.net
Url blocked by robots.txt.
Sitemap contains urls which are blocked by robots.txt.
What does that have to do with Yoast’s WordPress SEO plugin?
Yoast’s plugin produces the sitemap which contain the errors.
+1 Can’t seem to find the solution anywhere.
Do you have the “Bad Behavior” plugin installed? I uninstalled that plugin and now I no longer get that error. If you don’t have Bad Behavior installed, it’s probably a different plugin having to do with security.
Thanks. Don’t have that one but did have several security plugins installed. Still have limit login attempts which may be the problem?
Could it be this one?
That could be it. The only way to find out though is to disable possible plugins and then enable them one-by-one until you no longer get that warning in GWT.

I’ve found there’s a conflict between Next Gen and Yoasts WordPress Seo plugin.
I’ve deleted Next Gen and most of the sitemap errors have gone.
I’ve also written a post on how to transfer galleries from Next Gen to the WordPress native gallery and retain all the functions Next Gen offers
