    i had installed the 4.0.5 Version of the plugin and have made the changes in the wp-config.php and .htaccess file, who are quoted in this post:

    When opening the sitemap, it displays the following error:

    XML-Verarbeitungsfehler: XML- oder Text-Deklaration nicht am Beginn der Entit├Ąt
    Adresse: http://www.roaring-cubes.com/sitemap.xml
    Zeile Nr. 2, Spalte 1:

    I am Using WP 3.9 on a NginX Server. The SEO Plugin is "All in one SEO Pack" ...

    I also tried to downgrade the plugin, but this causes that the page completely went down.

    Maybe someone can help ??

    Many thanks in advance

    Hi Arnee,

    many thanks for your help! I have checked the functions.php and it ends with a ?>, also the quoted workaround does not fix the problem, unfortunately ... so it seems that one of the other Plugins causes the error ...

    But i am planing an update of the whole installation and the theme in the near future, then at the latest i hope to find out which other plugin causes the error ...

    If i have found it, i will give you a info regarding this.

    unfortunately, i could not fix the problem - so i did an update of the whole wp and plugin installation. After that, everything works fine.
