[resolved] WPML multi-language problem (6 posts)

    since the update to the latest version of the plugin, only main language pages are listed in the virtual sitemap.xml file, while other languages pages are missing.
    We are using WPML (latest release) to manage translations in virtual lang subfolders (www.site.com/en, http://www.site.com/it, http://www.site.com/es and so on).
    How can we add also the missing pages to our sitemap.xml?

    this post is two weeks old, but has seen no update yet.
    I am facing the same problem. With version 3.x of this plugin, the sitemap contained ~560 links submitted to google. On the day of the update to version 4.0, I can see it dropped to 230 links. When I check the XML sitemap, it only shows the links of the main language, but not the other languages.
    Can you please have a look into this? This is a really nasty bug!

    I am on WP 3.8.3, G-XML-S plugin version 4.0.3 and WPML 3.1.4.

    Thanks, Herbert

    Hello Arnee,

    thanks for providing the beta for testing.
    This is a great progress, the WPML compatibility is much improve, although not complete yet.
    The sitemap-pt-post-<year>-<month>.xml files now contain articles in all my available languages. Great.

    The "other" sitemap files however not yet, I mean:

    Thos 4 sitemaps still only contain the main language, in my case in German, but there are no archives/authors etc. links to the english and spanish languages.

    Thanks, Herbert

    Hi @Herbert,

    Thanks for the note. I will check how these taxonomies are saved in the database. But the most important content are the posts, and that should work now :)

    Hi, i am using WPML also in subdirectories.

    Tried version 4.0.7 and dont work...

    I am still blocking robots for now (i think it is not important for the plugin to work ok), but i wanted to see if my oriented language sitemaps where created, and i canĀ“t even see the index sitemap file. I receive a 404 error..

    I will update your plugin to last version to see if it works.

    Can you help me someway with this?
    What can i do to google sitemap generator plugin to build different sitemap files for different languages in virtual subdirectories ?
