Validating ror.xml
« on: January 23, 2007, 07:52:05 PM »
Hi when I validate the ror.xml file I get the following errors, is there anyway to change the code to include the missing items.


This feed does not validate.
  line 17, column 0: item must contain either title or description (26 occurrences) [help]
          </item>

   line 168, column 0: Missing channel element: description [help]
          </channel>

In addition, this feed has an issue that may cause problems for some users. We recommend fixing this issue.

    line 11, column 0: item should contain a guid element (27 occurrences) [help]
          </item>


Also does anybody know the difference between submitting ror.xml or urllist.txt to yahoo?

Hello,

ror.xml file at your domain doesn't seems to be created by Sitemap Generator, perhaps you have different software that creates it?

Anyway, Yahoo doesn't support ror sitemaps as far as I know, you should submit either sitemap.xml or urllist.txt to Yahoo.

Please try to remove the file and re-generate it again.
