What is XML Parsing Error???
« on: September 21, 2009, 01:47:23 PM »
Please help! My site map is not showing up on my server. Instead, I'm receiving the following error:

"XML Parsing Error: no element found. Location: [external links are visible to admins only]. Line Number 115725, Column 9:"

That's it.

***Sitemap generator constantly stops, forcing me to re-start manually

***Parsing error with no sitemap displaying

Please help.

Thank you,
Mike

Hello,

try to add this line to the end of your sitemap.xml file:
Code: [Select]
</urlset>

[external links are visible to admins only]
Hello,

try to add this line to the end of your sitemap.xml file:
Code: [external links are visible to admins only]
</urlset>

Thank you, Oleg. HOWEVER, how do I add this line to the end of my sitemap file?????? I can't even get the file to display. Look for yourself: [external links are visible to admins only]

All this time, I wondered why the SEs hadn't indexed these pages, and now I know why!

Update: I added </urlset> to end of sitemap. The following error message appears:

XML Parsing Error: mismatched tag. Expected: </url>.
Location: [external links are visible to admins only]
Line Number 146313, Column 5:  </urlset>
----^

Please help resolve.
