Scans site, shows files, but WON'T make proper SiteMap
« on: May 04, 2010, 04:15:53 PM »
Scans site, shows files, but WON'T make proper SiteMap only on this site below:
The "Analyze website" tab SHOWS ALL the files perfectly, but when I click "Create sitemap" it only shows 5 or 6 files.

I've had no issues with other sites, only this one.

www.metlifebank.com

Any ideas?

It's a "funny" problem related to canonical and root path aliases in A1 Sitemap Generator.

All the pages in your site use canonical to themselves... Which normally would mean A1 Sitemap Generator would know they are internal and thus not consider the canonical a kind of redirect.

However, the pages refer to themselves without "http://" in front. And A1 Sitemap Generator does not default to add a "www." without "http://" variation to its root path alias list. (One might also argue A1SG should be able to assume protocol to be "http://". I will look into why I am not already doing this.)

Anyways, you can either add it yourself, or wait a couple of days. I will have a new beta out then :)


best regards
