How do you properly set up and run the Sitemap feature on Xenforo 1.4?
UN-install completely your sitemap addon.
Delete all related addon files including /sitemap/* folder
Check your settings Here: /admin.php?options/list/sitemap
Then Rebuilt XML Sitemap here: /admin.php?tools/rebuild
Then submit your sitemap url on Google Webmaster Tools: /sitemap.php
And it on your robots.txt like this: https://www.phcorner.net/robots.txt
After submitting the Sitemap on September 12th, It has not been updated in Google. Is that on googles end or something with Xenforo? My other site map with the add on updated daily.
The sitemap cron runs twice a week - Monday and Friday.
Is that an optimal setting or just a default of sorts.
It is default. If you want to change it (let say "every day") you can easily change it in cron options for sitemap. But remember to change it again every time after you update XenForo
Thanks - yes I understand where to change it, just trying to figure out the most optimal setting. My site averages 5-10 discussions and 100 messages a day (new content). Perhaps daily is too much in my case.
I don't have a folder?
I believe the folder being referred to is the one from the old sitemap add-on which was commonly used before we added it to XF in 1.4.
Thanks Chris, I was wondering about that. Keep up the good work.
