I uploaded the plugin simply clicked to have the xml maps sent to google and bing....all of my other plugins were deleted. Woocommerce, booking appointments, etc. Tons of important information and work. Instantly gone. Wow.

Fatal error
By , for WP 4.1

Made my page go down. Message on back and front was : "Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class GoogleSitemapGeneratorLoader in ........../plugins/sitemap-generator-for-webmasters/sitemap.php on line 38." When i went into the server/plugin-map and deleted the plugin, my page went back from the dead again.
