I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add a feature to divide sitemaps

    Sitemaps should be no larger than 50MB (52,428,800 bytes) and can contain a maximum of 50,000 URLs. These limits help to ensure that your web server does not get bogged down serving very large files.
    https://www.sitemaps.org/faq.html

    So division of large sitemaps to several parts can solve this problem.

    • ..enter a function to list /amp also!

      Google won't be fast to crawl /amp sites without getting a hint with a link, so it would be nice to have it in the sitemap

      • Images and attachments included in sitemap

        Hi, I love your plugin and am using it frequently. I wonder if you can add images and attachment to the sitemap? I am happy to pay you for the cost (depending on how much).

        • provide option to remove certain URLs (like older articles you no longer want indexed)

          If you have thousands of articles (like a news archive), you may not want the older news articles continuing to be indexed. There is no way to current exclude a set of URLs, or select multiple files via a filter (e.g., don't include URLs older than X).

          • I have to say this plugin is the best and one suggestion from my end

            why didnt you split sitemap-tax-post_tag.xml into multiple files like that of posts. if you do so this will be the BEST plugin, as yoast has this... and i found this is missing in our plugin.

                • Automatically pull translated page URLs (ie /es/, /fr/, etc)

                  Currently, most sitemaps only gather English URLs. This is a pain for sites that have translated their content. We use a plugin called Weglot to help us do this but the sitemap plugin doesn't map those translated URLs automatically.

                  Having this in the future would be really nice.

                  • Different Priorities per Custom Post Types

                    I have two different Custom Post Types and I want them to have different priorities. At the moment I had to disable a Custom Post Type and included all the entries of such Custom Post Type in the "Additional Pages" section to manually the set priority. It would be great if you can add this simple but powerful feature. Thanks a lot!

                      • exclude tags and categories from sitemap

                        one of these older posts says that a full category can be excluded. However, I don't see this feature in the current version 4.0.8.

                        It would be helpful to exclude tags and categories for Google SEO. I believe including these in the sitemap is negatively affecting my SEO. Google searches the category/tags first, so that the actual posts are much lower in the search results, and people never get to them. Google is creating snippets from the first post it finds under a tag or category, but that snippet is often irrelevant. Or, google thinks it is duplicate content and…

                        • woocommerce

                          I would like to have products from woocommerce integrated into sitemap as a standard post type like all other pages and posts. Til now it is only separated as own post type with some limitations.

                              • I have enhanced this plugin with splitting taxonomy sitemaps by 25000 entries

                                We have over 250000 tags at our webpage and I needed to enhance this plugin, Taxonomy sitemaps are now splitted by 25000 entries. It creates sitemaps like "tax_sitemap_1" "tax_sitemap_2" etc. If you need it too, just tell me. Would be good to implement this at some future release

                                  • Crawl Delay option for robots.txt

                                    I need to be able to modify the crawl delay on the robots.txt. But since the plugin is generating it, I cannot do that. I would add this option on the admin and then easily generate it on the file

                                    Thanks

                                    • Great Plugin! But ...

                                      It would be great having the possibility to modify the robots.txt. e.g. for adding Disallow: /something

                                        • Support of single page ajax website

                                          Single page webiste url could be with hash tag and slug of the post or/and custom post type.

                                          www.mysite.com/#!/my-slug
                                          www.mysite.com/#!/custom-post-type/my-slug

                                          If we can able to support this, which also follow the google guideline.
