Do not use
By , for WP 4.4

Broken with 4.4 version of WordPress (newest)

Google can no longer crawl my website and this is giving me a total headache dealing with this mess.... =/

Simple, facil y rapido
By , for WP 4.3.1

Así es, totalmente merecedor de las 5 estrellas, esta herramienta mi bien instale ya la eh enviado para aprovacion en google search console y no se imaginan, sin ningun error, funciona totalmente bien.
Es mas es simple, sin tantas complejidades tiene opciones genericas y accesibles, es sencillo y esta en español. Se los recomiendo totalmente ya que tiene soporte xml real firmado por estandart protocolar sin advertencias ni errores como otros plugins como el All in One que aparece error html que no lo recomiendo para nada.

Best option for Google News sitemap
By , for WP 4.3.1

With this plugin you can create both regular sitemap and Google News Sitemap to submit to Google Search Console.

Have some UI/UX flaws but works perfect and the authors are responsive with the community.

On sitemap generators, this plugin is the second with more active installs behind Yoast SEO, Yoast SEO do not generate Google News sitemaps, if you are looking for that is the no brainier at the time (10/2015), you can still using Yoast SEO for SEO and use both plugins (must disable "sitemaps" on Yoast SEO).

A simple, effective must have plug in.
By , for WP 4.3

After being frustrated with Yoast and looking around for a simple, & effective google friendly sitemap solution, when I found this one I thought it was like so many others, too good to be true.
But no, sometimes you find a plug in that just works, no frills needed it just does the job & does it very well indeed.
Takes about 5 seconds to set up then forget it.
The support here is also awesome, if you are having problems using this it's not likely to be the plug in but other issues with your site, so don't bitch about it just ask for help & you will get it.
I have used it for a couple of years now on a dozen sites and any issues I've had have been with other plug ins (W3 total cache for instance) or WP and those have been quickly & easily solved.
Believe me if a bumbling amateur like me can use this then anyone can.

Well supported sitemaps plugin
By , for WP 4.2.4

Using this plugin on a site serving 200k sessions a day. This plugin works great and seems to receive the best support from its author over any other sitemap plugin on wordpress.org.

The Google News Sitemap Feed is also an invaluable addition. Thanks so much for the feature!

Did not index the website pages
By , for WP 4.2.2

The sitemap file include 3 URL's - none of which were actual pages from the site - but rather core WordPress files.

When with another sitemap plugin - it indexed 157 pages that this plugin missed.

Plugin claims that it works, but doesn't write anything.
By , for WP 4.2.2

TL;DR: The plugin doesn't work, it doesn't write the sitemap file for some reason or another (no error messages in PHP log files, most likely suppressed to make it look like it works).

I've installed this two weeks ago to hopefully get WordPress to generate a sitemap (Why isn't this a core feature again?). When I tried looking at the sitemap, the file doesn't exist. It's never written and there are no error/warning messages logged, so I don't even know if it's shitty coding (supressing error messages usually is shitty coding) or a configuration error (that would be the first one in 8 years now).
Would not recommend until it either gives you an option to see why it's not working, or actually starts working in an environment that nothing else has trouble with.

Great for WPML Multi Language
By , for WP 4.1.1

I had trouble with SEO YOAST and the Google Sitmap while running on NGINX with WPML. I use Directory mapping for the multiple language. It work like a charm now.

I did upload to Google Webmaster tools both Sitemaps:

/en/sitemap.xml
and
/fr/sitemap.xml

As simple as that.

Thanks
