Well all of a sudden It seems to be working now..I guess...
But I did come across a problem with the generation...the sitemap files which are limited by 50,000 pages exceeds the file size limit of 10M mine come in at 12.5M. How can I limit the links/sitemap from 50,000 to say 40k or 25k? I saw in config,inc.php this line which had 'xs_sm_size' => '50000', is this where I can limit the size?
Also I checked off .gzip will the generator create new files or do I need to create templates? I checked it off yesterday and ran it last night but I don't see the .gzip sitemaps on the server?
I assume the directory sitemap will still be sitemap.xml which will list the sub sitemap files that are gzipped so I don't need to resubmit a whole new sitemap? Do I need to submit the subfiles...i.e. sitemap1.xml..etc. to google or does it automatically go to them because they are called out on the main file?
