    Multilingual XML Sitemap output's # for non-mandatory unpublished variants

    Our configuration is U8, with multilingual variants. We have:

    • / (main variant en-GB)
    • /nl (nl-NL Optional variant)
    • /us (en-US optional variant)

    Because nl and us are optional variants, a page can be published on the main GB variant, and not published on the multi-lingual variants.

    However, the XML Sitemap for both multi-linguagal sites

    <urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">

    All the rows with a # correspond to a page which is published on the main variant but not on the US site. i.e. I only have two pages published on the US site at the moment

    Hi Paul,

    This will be addressed in the 2.10 release. XML Sitemaps and Multi lingual have a few small issues at the moment indeed.

    Best,

    Richard

    Hi Richard, I just installed seo checker on my local to get the understanding of how it works. So far it seems like a very nice and easy to use package.

    But i have a query regarding sitemap. Since we exclude the doc types from the sitemap, the sitemap.xml should contain all urls(multilingual ) for the doctypes i have chosen to include.

    Am i correct so far ? When i preview the sitemap.xml, it only shows the sitemap of default language.

    Am i missing something ? Kindly help.

    Hi Richard, I did replace the files but i am still getting the sitemap for just default language. Do i change the settings from somewhere or is there a step i am missing ?

    Multi lingual -> You can specify sitemapindex.xml and it will give you all the sitemap nodes

    It did.Thanks for that. But fr my other language variant my url is /sv-se/. the root node is displaying correct in /sv-se/sitemap.xml. But rest of them are all showing up the default nodes, i.e. the nodes of /sitemap.xml.enter image description here

    Hi,

    If you use the RC and you use sitemapindex.xml not sitemap.xml you should see an index file with language xml files. In image below first english second is german
