automated sitemap not working
« on: March 22, 2012, 02:51:40 PM »
I was pretty excited when I discovered that A1 could automate sitemaps, but I keep running into an issue.  I created a batch file using -scan -buildimagexml.  It opens the program, scans the site, but I keep getting an error that says "You need to crawl website with the appropriate settings first. Under 'Quick presets' select 'Google image sitemap' ". I tried adding -buildxml and it builds a regular sitemap just fine, but gives the same error for the image sitemap. Is there a way to have the preset set to 'google image sitemap' before the scan begins or have that preset as the default?

Did you inform A1 Sitemap Generator which website to scan? You would *normally* create a project file first (where you could use the image preset) and then pass it along as a parameter.

Just for completeness, here's the documentation:
