    Hi,

    I have a strange XML Sitemap problem: I have a large number of pages that need to be excluded form the sitemap. So I click on one of the sitemap links to go to the page in question, edit the page, go to SEO Advanced, and I noticed that the checkbox labeled “Do not display this page in search engine results / XML – HTML sitemaps (noindex)” is already checked. However, the option cannot be toggled!

    I tried checking ‘on’ all of the “Do Not…” boxes to see if this would remove the page from the sitemap. But no luck.

    Also I noticed that ALL of the pages in the sitemap have the noindex option set but disabled.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    *Fixed*

    For some reason, Titles & Metas -> Single Post Types -> Pages -> (noindex) was checked on by mistake.

    Once I removed the checkmark, I was able to remove pages from the XML sitemap, both individually and en masse.
