Google says Sitemap missing XML

Submitted by webman on Wed, 2022-06-08 17:15 in

Hi David,

I have had a missing XML error with a couple of installations and was wondering what could be causing the issue and if there is a fix for it?

Here is the report from google:

This required tag is missing. Please add it and resubmit.

Examples

Line 1

Parent tag: sitemapindex

Tag: sitemap

Kind Regards

Les :)

Hi Les,

I wonder if a warning or other output is occurring that is breaking the XML. If you browse to sitemap.php do you see the sitemap XML rendered by your browser or does it indicate an error? If it shows as broken and you don't see any particular output that looks incorrect try using the View > Source function of your web browser and that might reveal more...

Cheers,
David.
