  1. to offer an additional mobile sitemap.

    I'm using your plugin on my site http://www.weinschenker.name. A mobile version of it is avalable via http://m.weinschenker.name.

    Mobile and 'normal' sitemap may be nearly identical, except for the hosts. All URLs of posts, pages and categories are the same.

    Why I would require a mobile sitemap is described here (in German): http://www.mobile-seo.de/archiv/16-Duplicate-Content-durch-Mobile.html#extended

  2. Add a feature to send an email to the site administrator if a sitemap fails

    Sometimes the sitemap wont generate on my site due to memory errors, and I wont know unless i specifically check the plugin page. Getting an email or a dashboard notification saying "sitemap rebuild failed!" would alert me so i can adjust.

  3. optionally include pdf documents as a custom page type

    I am using WordPress as a CMS and pdfs are a part of my content. It would be great if they were included in my Sitemap.

  6. 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.

  7. Generate Geo Sitemap using post meta

    Generate separate Geo Sitemap according to Google instructions here:
    http://code.google.com/apis/kml/documentation/kmlSearch.html

    Coordinates could be extracted from META:
    <meta content="56.9485664;24.1902752" name="geo.position"/>

  8. Includes external sitemap files

    Hi!
    I've more sitemap.xml generated by different packages, like wordpress, prestashop and vbulletin, I use an XML to include all that sitemaps in one, like:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <sitemapindex xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">
    <sitemap>
    <loc>http://www.softairmania.it/xmlsitemap.php</loc>
    </sitemap>
    <sitemap>
    <loc>http://www.softairmania.it/portale/sitemap.xml</loc>
    </sitemap>
    <sitemap>
    <loc>http://www.softairmania.it/shop/1_index_sitemap.xml</loc>
    </sitemap>
    </sitemapindex>

    But now with your plugin I can't do it, can you add a way to include external sitemaps files?

  9. Use the greater of post date vs. update date so that scheduled posts have the latest date.

    When I schedule a post for 5 days in the future, the date that appears in the XML sitemap is not the publish date but rather the date 5 days prior to when it was published.

  10. map wpmu paths

    First of all: thank you very much for your great plugin!

    This is a hack I applied, adding some multi-user (wpmu) intelligence to your plugin.

    It automatically maps the "files/" directory to the corresponding wpmu files path (".../wp-content/blogs.dir/{blog_id}/files").

    I thought it might be useful to others and you could integrate it in your next release. It makes large-scale integrations over dozens of blogs easier.

  11. Word Press Multi-Language Plugin Compatability

    I'm using the WPML Wordpress Multi-Language / Mulitlingual Plugin CMS: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sitepress-multilingual-cms/ And the XML sitemap doesn't see any of my pages or posts! Would love to see this work out!

  14. Include Images

    Allow images along with posts so google can index images associated with posts for SERPs.

  15. Great Plugin! But ...

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

  16. 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).

  17. Allow more frequent Google sitemap submission

    Sometimes my traffic drops and we find out that Google did not 'pick up' the latest sitemap, even though there were no build errors and the plugin settings page say that Google was "successfully notified"... would like to be able to have the plugin 'ping' Google on a more frequent schedule, possibly using wp-cron?

  19. To exclude pages with "noindex" option

    For me it's more convenient to manage excluded from sitemap pages - from the post (because i often add hidden pages, not for search engines).
    So, it's very logical - not to add to engine sitemap pages, that must not be indexed.

    I've added to sitemap-core.php (2010-05-29) line 1770 this string:

    $where.=" AND robotsmeta NOT LIKE '%noindex%'";

    All works fine
