Learning that there is a module for creating Google Sitemaps in the svn, I downloaded the files, put the trunk on my ss server (in a folder called googlesitemaps), and rebuilt my database.
Now what? I am probably missing something obvious, but how do I make the module create a sitemap.xml?
You are actually all set. You can see the site map by going to
http://yoursite.com is the url for your silverstripe installation. The xml is created dynamically at the time of call.
Hope this helps.
I'm feeling really dumb. Thanks a lot for the help.
I've just upgraded an installation of SS2.3.0 to 2.3.1, which includes the googlesitemaps module.
Everything else seems to be working fine, but when I try to view /sitemap.xml on my site, I see a mostly empty xml file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
I have a handful of published pages, and I've updated my database with http://localhost:8888/db/build?flush=1 - I'm not sure what to do next.
I'm experiencing the same issue as Acketh -- an empty urlset element. I also notice that there is no "advanced" area on the metadata tab, mentioned in the docs. In fact, except for the existence of the /sitemap.xml URI, I can't tell that the sitemap extension is doing anything. :(
[UPDATE: this seems to be bug #3819:
[UPDATE 2: still no UI showing up in the CMS, although the sitemap is now correctly populated.]
