Possible to edit XML file on View Sitemap page?
« on: March 10, 2010, 06:47:13 PM »
This may be a stupid question. I wish to edit the priority tags for each of my pages individually.

On the "View Sitemap" page, my XML SiteMap File is shown at the bottom in an editable text field. (Why is this field editable if not to make changes?)

Can I edit my priority tags directly in this field and have them saved to the sitemap.xml file on my server?

I have tried opening the XML file in Notepad. But Notepad seems to add additional characters to the file (such as spaces) and I don't want to screw it up.

What's the best way to do this? Thanks.

Hello,

normally you should be able to modify xml sitemap with text editor, like notepad (just make sure that you modify ONLY priorities and no other changes are made).

However, I owuld recommend to use generator's "Individual attributes" setting  - in this way priorities will be kept next time you regenerate sitemap, you will specify them in the setting like:
Code: [Select]
pagename.html,,,0.9
