excludes....not working?
« on: March 28, 2010, 04:40:55 PM »
Your online generated xml-sitmap is including this joomla folder and link. 

<loc>http://www.oursite.com/component/mailto/?tmpl=component&amp;link=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX</loc>

I think it could be a link to our joomla contact page.....it's hard to tell because the link is a line of over 50 characters.

our robot.txt file "disallows" components

User-agent: *
Disallow: /administrator/
Disallow: /cache/
Disallow: /components/
Disallow: /images/
Disallow: /includes/
Disallow: /installation/
Disallow: /language/
Disallow: /libraries/
Disallow: /media/
Disallow: /modules/
Disallow: /plugins/
Disallow: /templates/
Disallow: /tmp/
Disallow: /xmlrpc/

is this a problem?  Is there a way to make these links SEF in the sitemap?

We are thinking of buying the stand-alone version but I need to sort this out.

Hello,

you have it set as:
Disallow: /components/

while it seems like it should be:
Disallow: /component/
