index.php and / both in the sitemap...
« on: September 04, 2007, 05:13:32 PM »
Hello,

I'm using Unlimited Sitemap Generator together with a Joomla based website and it works great !
... the only thing i would like to solve is that basically the generated map contains both "/" and "/index.php"

I mean:

if I put http://www.example.com/ in the "starting URL" I get both the root and the index page in the sitemap:

http://www.example.com/
http://www.example.com/index.php

and the same thing happens if i put http://www.example.com/index.php in the "starting URL"

As i read in another similar post of this forum (http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/forum/index.php/topic,1072.html) it would be better to have just one instance of them in a single sitemap... so how can i solve this ? Maybe specifyng something in the "configuration" section  ?

Thank you in advance for some helpful tips

Best regards,

Deepz

Hello,

you can try to add this into "Exclude URLs" option:

Code: [Select]
.*index.php$

Thank you very much for your reply ! After a couple of trys i've found it works adding "index.php" only into the "Exclude URLs" field.
