Hi all, I'm kinda baffled by this one...

I'm running a Silverstripe 2.4.2 site with the following modules installed:


all these modules installed (dev/build etc) and are running just fine.

However, I just downloaded the Site map Module, copied it to the root of my site, named the folder 'sitemapmodule' but when I run /dev/build, nothing is added to my database...

I checked and double checked.. the files ARE THERE, _config.php is there too.... so what the hell is going on here? Anyone seen this before? My apologies if this has been posted before...

Thanks in advance.

Do you mean 'Google Sitemaps Module'? If so it adds a director rule to say if you request 'sitemap.xml' then use the control provided in googlesitemaps\code\GoogleSitemap.php to render the xml required. there would be no change to the database as it doesn't seem to add any models or pages to provide the functionality.

No, the google sitemap module is the default sitemap module, that always comes packed with the install. The sitemap module I want to use is this one:

the modules I listed above I mentioned because they are non default - maybe there is some sort of conflict going on?
