Sitemap Error
« on: February 15, 2012, 11:47:03 AM »
I have used the free version of the sitemap generator and there are two errors in the code which make the file unusable:

<urlset xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9 http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/sitemap.xsd" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">

Specifically the bit of the line xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9 http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/sitemap.xsd" we believe is formatted incorrectly. 

Is this a common problem? Is this problem also present on the paid version which I was considering purchasing?

Hello,

this is correct way to define schema elements for XML sitemap, you can see it here:

What exactly is the problem you get with this code?

This is the error:

''We were unable to read your Sitemap. It may contain an entry we are unable to recognize. Please validate your Sitemap before resubmitting.''

Does it show a line number with error? What is your sitemap URL?
