    issue with 4.6.1

    I installed Cultiv Search Engine Sitemap on Umbraco 4.6.1 installation. Installation went fine.

    But as said in documentation, accessing /cultivsearchenginesitemap.aspx does not works. I am getting 404/Page not found error.

    Then i created a new content page and assigned CultivSearchEngineSitemap template to it. Accessing this page works fine and give me the desired sitemap. (  )

    Further one more question: In the rendered sitemap xml i don't see any entry for homepage? Is this the desired behavour?

    I do not have this issue on a fresh 4.6.1 install.. But if you remove the .aspx, is the issue still there? This works using the altTemplate method, so there has to be a template called CultivSearchEngineSitemap for this to work, did you rename it maybe?

    Yes, this is desired behaviour, typically, I want the Home page to be under "site" node, like so:

    - Site
    -- Home
    -- About
    -- Contact

    I have blogged about this recently.

    But, if you've already set your site up differently, change this line:

    <xsl:with-param name="parent" select="$currentPage/ancestor-or-self::*[@level=1]"/>

    To start at level 0 instead:

    <xsl:with-param name="parent" select="$currentPage/ancestor-or-self::*[@level=0]"/>

    Thanks for the reply.

    Mine is also a fresh 4.6.1 installation. and yes template with name and alias "CultivSearchEngineSitemap" does exists. 

    But the following url does not works. Do i need to do any changes to have altTemplate method run properly?  throws below exception:

    No umbraco document matches the url ''

    But my workaround of creating content page with CultivSearchEngineSitemap template still works.  (


    And for home page, its fine now. I have my workaround for that. Thanks for the imformation.

    Thanks & Regards

    Weird! Does your 404Handlers.config look like this?

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <notFound assembly="umbraco" type="SearchForAlias" />
      <notFound assembly="umbraco" type="SearchForTemplate" />
      <notFound assembly="umbraco" type="SearchForProfile" />
      <notFound assembly="umbraco" type="handle404"/>

    The "SearchForTemplate" handler should handle things for you..

    I had a similar issue, if you rename the template - make sure you do it via Umbraco rather than Visual Studio.
