    Hi, I'm running into a problem and I hope someone can help me. My site is http://policecaughtontape.com and Google Webmaster Tools says there's no problem, but when I go to https://xenforo.com/community/sitemap.php I can see an actual sitemap for xenForo site, but when I go to http://policecaughtontape.com/forums/sitemap.php it displays an error for me. Could someone please tell me why this is?

    (Note: I specify forums vs community due to the fact that my 'Index Page Route' is specified as forums/)

    Thank you

    Hey Brogan, as always thanks for the fast reply! Oh, well I see that but what throws me off is that when I type that it says "Opening sitemap-1.xml.gz , whereas when I type the xenForo sitemap it displays automatically. I'm thrown off cause it doesn't display like yours.

    This site is a lot larger so has multiple sitemaps.

    Yours has a single one which is automatically downloaded to your computer when you access the link.

    Oh. Thanks Brogan! One more question please. Being how you said my site is installed at the root, should I leave the 'Index Page Route' blank, or should I leave it as I have it set as forums/ ? Thank you

    It still needs to be set as forums/ which is the default configuration.

    Unless you want visitors to see a different page when they access the main site URL.
