    WP sitemap plugin

    I know I should have posted this at the wprdpress support but while waiting for the answer there I wanted to know if sitepoint members noticed this...

    I am not using this plugin but today I tried and when the sitemap was generated, it shows only the URLs of my posts. It does not generate pages for tags (which is very important)... If this is the case, this plugin is useless...

    Can someone explain how deep this plugin can dig our wordpress blogs' pages?

    Thanks

    I tried the sitemap plug in a few times and had problems with it. When ever I tried it would list pages like the log in page or others that shouldn’t be on there and it would miss a ton of important pages.

    I went to the support page on WP.org a while back and it was full of unanswered questions and bug reports. So after that I never bothered with it again.

    Kind of seems like the creator never followed up on it to work the bugs out.

    My question is still sitting there and I'm waiting... I thought it is a perfect remedy for wp sitemap but it seems the free generator that generates max of 500 links is still better..

    Tags are very important... they make our blog more visible to surfers..

    Just follow the instruction...

    Upload the plugin to plugin folder

    create 2 files and change permission of these file to 777
    1. sitemap.xml
    2. sitemap.xml.gz

    Upload these 2 files in your blog root.
    Activate plugin and crease a sitemap ...

    Though it is not so accurate, it is better than nothing... especially if you are running dozens of autoblogs..

    There is talk of a sitemap tool being included in the WordPress core in one of the next few releases. I'm guessing it will be in 2.9, although I also thought it would be in 2.8 but it wasn't. 3.0 is looking like being their Mu merger version so if it isn't added by then I'd guess it wouldn't be until 3.1 which is due in about nine months time.

    Unfortunately that does not help your immediate problem though

    Well it seems to go deep but not work so great, But deep Yes, it will even pick up your log in page and submit it to google and they will even index it sometimes.

    Are you talking about the google sitemap plugin? If so, wouldn't google indexing the tag archive pages and any other archive pages risk a duplicate content issue?

    In fact, I hide all of my archive pages from the SE's and just let them index the articles and pages.

    Ryan, I think Matt Mullenweg mentioned 2.9 having the sitemap tool in the core for WordPress 2.9 at WordCamp Chicago this past weekend. I'd have to check over the notes to make sure though.

    Anyway, I am still using a sitemap generator software for my main blog but for other adsense blogs that require less maintenance, I use this wp plugin.. let's wait for the later release if there is some improvement.

    I use PS Auto Sitemap. Very easily configurable and customizable. Give it a try.

    It seems it has better features than the standard google WP sitemap generator...

    It's a WordPress plug in. If you are blogging in WordPress, all you have to do is go to your plugins page and use the auto search to find it. I never download plugins anymore. The auto search and auto install feature kicks!
