    keeps generating a sitemap with #

    GWT tells me sitmap invalid or words to that affect.

    I'm getting the same problem. 2 pages of "#" in the sitemap causing errors in Google Webmaster Tools.

    Is there a setting that will fix this?

    Thank you!

    Hi @daves1997 I checked your sitemap and could not see any entries with # symbol. What browser are you using? I checked using FireFox.

    @webdzign could you post your URL here so that we can check, thank you.

    Kind regards

    I manually removed the # sign. I deactivated the plugin. If I reactivate it, I will have to manually remove again through the cpanel.
    Not sure why the plugin keeps placing the # sign in the site map.

    Hi, what is your permalink structure? What theme are you using? Do you have a cache plugin installed?

    If your are not using the plugin what method are you using to generate your sitemap.xml file, if you don't mind me asking?

    Kind regards

    I think I found the problem: It was pulling the URL from the upper level menu items, which are empty pages, so they are also 'empty' links.

    It was a small site with no blog, so I just manually created the sitemap.xml file.

    Would love to know a workaround for this for future use, for larger sites.
