Generator doesn't generate full file
« on: April 11, 2007, 03:12:04 AM »
I'm trying to generate a site map on http://www.mrmilitaria.com and it only generates the following:

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
  <urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9 http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/sitemap.xsd" />

I'm not sure what I need to do.  I have a feeling it is server-related because I can't get other sites that are on the same server to run as well.  Same thing happens.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Hello,

you have the following tag in your homepage html source:
Code: [Select]
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow,noarchive">
It tells the crawler NOT to index your site, that's why you get empty sitemap as a result.

I'm have the same issue, but xml creator is not generator url's past the first page. I've tried several times to no success. The XML generator has worked fine on my other websites.

Here's my site Text Message to TV Screen Entertainment website http://www.firetext.tv

Are you allow to use a specific page as a starter for example  http://www.firetext.tv/text-to-screen/index.php and submit all the urls from that page? or does it have to be the direct link of the website.

Sincerely
Text to Screen

Enviro,

you should get rid of javascript redirection on your homepage that prevents crawling your website.

firetext,

yes, you can use non-root links as "Starting URL".
