Does not detect, index, or put on sitemap url's for basic links

Basic links like
Code: [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
<a href="https://domain.us/" title="Name of page" target="_blank">Link Text</a> do not seem to be detected, indexed, or put on a sitemap.  I have a number of such links that are added to the page via PHP includes, like a Copywrite link in the footer.  However, I added a number of basic links, as exampled above, to the main page and it did not put them on any sitemap either.  It also does not seem to find and index referral and affiliate advertising link as well.

Fixed the issue with basic links by unclicking "use robots.txt file", even though that file allowed all.  Not sure why it worked but it did.  However, any link that has an image or is to an external site is ignored.

Based on my in-depth reading of this form this is not an issue, it is a feature.

Unlimited PHP Sitemap Generator will not map any link that is to an external site, and only internal links with the same first part as Starting URL would be indexed.

Seems all of my questions on this have now been answered.
