    Sitemap.xml not created

    Hi Richard,

    I have just installed your updated version of SEO Checker on www.ministryofsound.com

    It isnt creating the sitemap.xml file.

    Any ideas what may be wrong?

    Cheers,

    Marc

    Hi Marc,

    I think the handlers for Robots.txt and xmslsitemap are not configured in web.config. see usermanual how to fix that.

    Best,

    Richard

    Hi Richard,

    Still no luck. Following is in web.config:

    Anything else I can check?

    Cheers,

    I think a timeout is causing the issue, make sure to exclude document types that don't need to be in the sitemap. And increase timeout.

    Hope this helps,

    Richard

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks, that solved the issue. With regards to the way the sitemap.xml is generated. The document types for blog articles should be included however when I check the sitemap.xml file they arent there.

    An example post is:

    http://www.ministryofsound.com/posts/articles/2017/june/the-hydra-24-hours-of-london/

    Why would this not be getting added to the sitemap.xml file?

    Cheers,

    Marc

    Could be taht you excluded the document type or that you set umbraconavihide and have the configuration setting exclude umbraconavihide enabled.

    Best to check the documentation how to configure this.

    Best,

    Hi Richard,

    The Blog document types are not excluded and umbraconavihide isnt enabled. The Blog posts are located below nodes which arent included. Could this be the issue:

    Blog Landing (included) > Posts (excluded) > Year (excluded) > Month (excluded) > Blog Post (included)

    Cheers,

    Marc
