Downloaded sitemap but can't activate it
« on: January 12, 2011, 02:19:40 AM »
Hi Guys,

I have downloaded the xml sitemap from the xml-sitemap.com site and I downloaded an uncompressed version.

I then clicked "Select All" Then "Copy"

Then opened Notepad and clicked "Paste" and saved it as sitemap.xm.

I then opened Filezilla and put it in the root directory of my site. 

Now when I go to mysite.com/sitemap.xml this is the message that I get:

XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
Location: [external links are visible to admins only]
Line Number 1, Column 3:  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
--^

Does anyone know what I did wrong and how I can fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

you should not copy/paste the content of xml sitemap, just right click on sitemap.xml link on details page, select "Save as" to save it on your computer and then upload that sitemap.xml file to your site.
