Level one directory still in sitemap when excluded as URL
« on: July 27, 2012, 06:19:14 PM »
I am running Joomla and have a level one directory that I want to exclude called 'research'

I have placed it in the exclude URLs as such:
print=
do_pdf=
pop=1
task=emailform
task=trackback
task=rss
research/
/research

However, the level one entry is still in the site map:
<url>
       <loc>...www.hmsoa.org/research</loc> note: ... replace http portion
       <lastmod>2012-07-27T15:20:52+00:00</lastmod>
       <changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
       <priority>0.8000</priority>
<url>
How can I make sure this entry is not in the site map. I don't want to just use research as a generic term since it does exist as part of other URL's.

Hello,

"research/" should work. Did you regenerate sitemap?
