Sitemap Generation Fails Citing Broken Link
« on: September 24, 2011, 07:44:41 PM »
Hi,

I have the generator set up OK, however when I run it it generates a no page sitemap and says there's a broken link. This broken link is basically:

http://www.make-me-beautiful.co.uk/http://www.make-me-beautiful.co.uk

This is probably the first link on the page since the logo in the corner points to http://www.make-me-beautiful.co.uk, but I don't get why it's adding it to the end rather than seeing it for the same URL it started on?

The configuration is set to index http://www.make-me-beautiful.co.uk.

Any ideas what's up?

Sorry for the false alarm I solved this myself - posting the fix in case anyone else gets it ever. The problem was a canonical tag on the homepage that had a space before the closing speech mark on the URL like this <.... href="thedomainaddress " /> 

Note the extra space before the last ". This caused the error and moving to <.... href="thedomainaddress" /> fixed it.
