Online xml creater creates false sitemap
« on: September 04, 2008, 04:35:46 PM »
Hello people,

I have tried to create an xml sitemap using this online tool for [external links are visible to admins only] and I find out that many of the urls point to the main page, others are old urls of old products that don't exist and point to a page saying "sorry product does not exist" and furthermore, urls that should have been added in the sitemap are just not there. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

If pages are included in sitemap then you still have links to those pages somewhere on your site and sitemap generator just finds them.

Fair enough....where are certain urls that should have been in the sitemap? for example this url never gets added: [external links are visible to admins only]

I see that this URL is included in sitemap:
Code: [Select]
  <loc>http://domain.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&amp;cPath=11&amp;products_id=1</loc>

The URL that you have indicated is different from the URL I have stated.

The url you said was [external links are visible to admins only] while the url I said was [external links are visible to admins only]

That is the same URL - "&" is replaced with "&amp;" in sitemap.
