XML Parsing Error: junk after document element
Location: [external links are visible to admins only]

I must echo this, haven't even got as far as Google submission. I just view the sitemap in Firefox and it says:

XML Parsing Error: junk after document element
Location: [external links are visible to admins only]
Line Number 8, Column 1:<url>
^

First few lines of the xml source code:

<url>
  <loc>[external links are visible to admins only]</loc>
  <priority>0.50</priority>
  <lastmod>2007-10-22T18:03:35+00:00</lastmod>
  <changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
</url>
<url>
  <loc>[external links are visible to admins only]</loc>
  <priority>0.40</priority>
  <lastmod>2007-10-22T18:03:35+00:00</lastmod>
  <changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
</url>

Hello,

please re-download sitemap generator package using the same link and update all generator/pages/* files on your server. There were missing xml template files in previously packed version.
My apologies for inconvenience.

[external links are visible to admins only]
I created my sitemap and submitted to Google, but it returns an error.

XML Parsing Error: junk after document element
Location: [external links are visible to admins only]
Line Number 8, Column 1:

What to do?
Your sitemap location is [external links are visible to admins only] - you added the "www." in config but maybe you informed Google of the [external links are visible to admins only] location - that can cause errors for mismatched URLs - just add your site to Google again (and verify) under [external links are visible to admins only]
You're causing a redirect at the moment.

It may well not be the answer but that will help in some way I'm sure  :D
