Seems to have broken
By , for WP 3.7

Been using this for a while on [ link redacted, please do not post links in the reviews section ] but now no longer updating site map and getting error in google webmaster. Loved it before.

Created Sitemap AND Link Spam
By , for WP 3.7.1

I thought it was working fine, had some security issues with the site recently and discovered a bunch of outbound links on the sitemap page to drug & loan sites!!! If this happened to you can fix it by disabling the plugin and deleting all related files to the sitemap. Make sure you change all passwords, etc. for users and remove sitemap url created from plugin too. From now on I think I'll stick with SEO Yoast plugin for site maps.

google webmaster tool errors
By , for WP 3.7.1

I got error messages when I checked Googles Webmaster tools. I don't know enough to figure out what the issue is except for me it isn't working.

Old code that does not follow PHP standards. Beware.
By , for WP 3.6.1

Version 3 is written for some old PHP and produces tons of warning messages about strict standards in PHP 5.4
Version 4 is in beta, still has the same warnings, and does not even create the sitemap.
Unless the author finds time to finish the new version and follow today's code standards, avoid this.

I can't get it to rebuild everyday like it is supposed to
By , for WP 3.4.2

I lost a lot of SEO juice because the sitemap was not rebuilding everyday like it said it was supposed to. I have to rebuild it everyday manually which totally stinks. I can't get any support either. Not happy so far.
