Sitemap not updating
« on: July 17, 2011, 07:23:21 PM »
Hi

Downloaded the trial version of http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/standalone-google-sitemap-generator.html today. Installed and configured fine. However, I think I have a problem. I have set up a cron job/scheduled task for my site to be crawled and sitemap regenerated (as per tutorial in admin panel) but nothing seems to happen.
As a test I set it to run every few minutes and updated a page and created a new page, neither of which are showing in the sitemap. The lastmod didn't update for the edited page and the new page hasn't even been added.

What am I doing wrong?

This was the last message received, I have no idea if this is an error or not. All I know is that the system wasn't updating the lastmod input of pages that I edited:-
