Hi all  happy new year 2007,

sitemap generator does not deleting the html sitemap pages that are not needed
lets say that the crawler has generated 10 html sitemap pages for a classifieds website that has 10.000 ads
next time the website have only 8.000 ads the crawler generate 8 html sitemap pages only
and do not delete the html pages number 9 and 10.
but google still coming to crawl these tow html pages (number 9 and 10)!!!!

please try to fix
Bestregards,kimo

Hello,

sitemap generator doesn't remove any files on the server to avoid possible data loss - imagine if sitemap10.html was your own file that you keep on the server for a purpose. :)
Also, usually the number of pages never decreases.

Can you please make this option possible in the config file so that we can put it on/off ?
