I have a pretty simple site with about 25 pages ([external links are visible to admins only]) and when I use a Joomla plugin it creates the sitemap on the fly in seconds. I downloaded and installed the XML sitemap generator and it is giving be some super long times and thousands of pages. Why is this?
Links depth: 5
Current page: architecural-rendering-budgets&tmpl=component&print=1&page=/our_process/deliverables.html/component/content/article/100.html
Pages added to sitemap: 14158
Pages scanned: 14160 (471,813.1 Kb)
Pages left: 10263 (+ 10532 queued for the next depth level)
Time passed: 221:11
Time left: 160:19
