Sitemap Question


I'm pretty new to Xenforo so bare with me. I have a Google Webmaster account where I have submitted a sitemap manually. What I would like to know is if I have to continue submitting it manually or if there is a way for my site to automaticly upload my sitemap to the Google Webmaster account?

I know there is an option in XF but there is no where that I can input a link so that XF knows where to send the file.

XF will automatically ping Google and Bing with the address of your sitemap URL.

This should happen automatically if the "Automatically submit sitemap to search engines" is checked.
I have a question related to Sitemaps.
This Sitemap Index - /community/sitemap.php - got submitted and have
197,219 web pages submitted, but ONLY
38,787 web pages got indexed.
Recently I migrated from vbulletin to Xenforo. Am I missing anything to have the search engine completely index all my web pages?

Ultimately Google will decide what it wants to index, so there isn't much you can do. Bear in mind it might take time to index your content.
