Hi, feel free to post any new suggestions! If you have a problem with the plugin or want to report a bug, please go here instead:

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. force rebuild of sitemap

    I create my pages in a dev-enviroment and then push them to a live system where the wp-backend and some other functions like crons are disabled and need a way to trigger a rebuilding of the sitemap from within one of my self-created of plugins.
    if i understood your documentation correctly this is not possible or unrecomended and you suggest to enque the rebuild to some wp-background-cron. [do_action("sm_rebuild")]
    could you please add a way to trigger the rebuild of a sitemap on request?

  2. Add filter to GetExcludedPostIDs

    This is a simple extension to your plugin. You would really help me if you can add a filter to the $excludes array of GetExcludedPostIDs(). I have protected pages on my website (based on a post meta field), so I want to automatically exclude these pages from the sitemap. This would be enough:

    $excludes = apply_filters('sm_exclude_post_ids', $excludes);

    Thank you!

  5. Make the plugin compatible with Simply Static

    Simply Static doesn't seem to be able to copy the sitemaps referenced to under sitemap.xml
    The only method to "fix" this would be to manually add every sitemap URL to the "Include" section of Simply Static

  6. Add ability to prioritize posts by Creation Date

    I have imported all of my data from another CMS. I have roughly 4500 posts which now all have the same updated_at timestamp. I don't allow comments on my posts, so I can't order by comment count, average, or updated-at date.

    If I could order by created_at date, then I would have an accurate sitemap.

  7. add support for sitemap.txt and sitemap.txt.gz or an option to execute php script after finishing

    I would like to have support for sitemap.txt and sitemap.txt.gz (since my "local" search engine only supports them),

    Or simple "execute this php" after you finish building sitemap.xml would do :)

    Thanx for great WP plugin!

  8. To integrate the FAQs created with the wonderful plugin q-and-a

    It would be wonderful if all answers created with the plugin q-and-a could be listed in your sitemap.
    You can see what I mean on http://www.centered-learning.de/faq/
    Normally the answer is displayed below the quesion if you click on it. But you can also see the answer on an extra page if javascript is disabled.
    It would be nice if these sites are integrated in the sitemap, too. I just had to put them in all manually...

    And it would be nice if you could select a priority for each static sites. We have bunch of them and on some of…

  9. Include Option for Adding Attachment Pages to Sitemap

    If possible please add an option to the settings to add Attachment Pages to the XML Sitemap.

    Maybe a part of the solution has just been posted in the support forum: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-google-xml-sitemaps-including-attachment-pages-hack

  10. Add changelog to readme.txt

    It would be great if you add changelogs to readme.txt since they can be seen on upgrade page and used by other plugins like Changelogger.

  12. 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!

  15. Allow for custom URL prefixes for sitemap URLs

    Allow for custom URL prefixes for sitemap URLs

    As an operator / site administrator, I would like to be able to have a custom prefix on the sitemap files. This is particularly frustrating when running behind a reverse proxy, where only a portion of URLs are going to the WordPress backends.

    Following is a patch to use as a starting point, based off version 4.1.0; I commented out the GetOption in AddRewriteRules because there seems to be some dependency that I don't understand.

  19. Please add a hook in the AddUrl function

    Please add a hook into the AddUrl function. I have been manually editing the file to add filter in to that function so that I can manipulate the URLs as they are generated to remove some pages which should be private on the fly and address some customized canonical URL structures.
