Deleting invisible characters from sitemap.xml
« on: February 16, 2011, 11:49:46 AM »
Dear all,
I wonder if there is a way to configure A1 Sitemap Generator v3.x to output XML sitemaps with less tabulators and CR's.
I edit the actual output manually (Ultraedit32) and leave 1 line per URL, thus "<url>...</url>CR".
Can one have this done straight from A1 SM? If "no", would you consider implementation?
As I've been tweeting out today at [twitter.com/seofreelance], a 667URL sitemap goes 12,35% lighter this way, and I am still using 1 CR per line for readibility.

Thanks for reading!

Hi, the new option works fine. Congratulations as it outputs exactly what I was manually getting by Ultraedit work.
A new challenge:
 - New option checkbox in the [XML Sitemap Options tab] where enable/disable the local GMT sufix adittion
   <lastmod>2011-02-17T00:00:00+00:00</lastmod>

Minor issues, aesthetic translation bugs (Spanish)
Aplication menu bar > Optiones is Opciones and Lingua is Idioma

Thanks!!

I will do so if there is no time info (or zero value), it will get cut!

I will fix Optiones to Opciones

"Lingua" is the term used across all languages (lack of better international recognized word)


(uploaded new beta now!)
