Sitemap under 10,000 URLs and over 10MB

Any idea why this file is so big?

[external links are visible to admins only]

If I should split this into multiple files, do I submit each sitemap to google separately or is there a link in the sitemap to jump to the next file?

XML-Sitemaps Support:
Hello,

the file is about 2.2Mb in size, which meets the requirement for xml sitemap, feel free to submit it to google: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/dashboard
(up to 10Mb or 50,000 URLs per file is allowed by xml sitemap protocol)

I dug into the sitemap last night and found that the image info was making it huge. I unchecked Include images information in the config and the sitemap shrunk.

Would be nice if I could disregard banner ads and keep the image info from the content. Don't know if that's possible though.

XML-Sitemaps Support:
Hello,

you can use "Exclude URLs" setting for that - it is applied to image URLs as well.

What exactly would I add to the Exclude URLs box? I already chose the settings for Joomla and phpBB. Should I add anything else?
