Image Sitemap Not Working - Please Help..
« on: August 11, 2011, 05:39:48 PM »
Hi,

The IMAGES sitemap for my joomla website isn't working properly

The site is [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
The images sitemap is [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]

the trouble is the sitemap includes the image thumbnails but not the ful size image e.g.
The image [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
is not included in the sitemap, only the joomla generated thumbnail:
[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]

If anyone can help please let me know how I can fix the images sitemap so it includes the ful size images

many many thanks

H

Hello,

according to images sitemap specification, it includes the images that are located *on* the page, and not the images *linked from* the page.

No, this specification is defined by google: [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]

As a workaround, you can link not to image directly, but to a small page that contains that image.
