Won't exclude
« on: November 06, 2008, 05:56:08 PM »
Hi,

I have put a few directories on the exclude list, but when I generate the sitemap, it is still including them!

Can anyone tell me why this is happening? Thanks!

Hello,

what exactly do you put in the list and what is an example URL that is included?
Please note that you should define folders without domain name and leading slash, i.e.:
folder1/
folder2/

That's strange, did you regenerate sitemap after changing the options? Please PM me your generator URL to check that.

Hi Oleg,

For some reason, it seems to be working now that I have come back to it after a few days.

Thanks so much for your offer to check it out, I will take you up on it if need be!
