Thursday 16 June 2022

WordPress Plugin directory - Gone! As with many of my projects, my Wordpress XML Sitemap Plugin started as something for one of my own websites as there were some serious limitations with using other plugins for effective SEO. Even today XML Sitemap offerings for Wordpress are limited. Since then my plugin went from strength to strength gathering more users. In early 2021 I re-wrote a large part of the plugin to improve maintainability and extensibility as it had become a bit “organic”.

πŸ“Œ New update Plugin v2.0.5

Saturday 30 April 2022

New Wordpress Sitemap Plugin v2.0.5 After a period of quiet I have released a new version of our plugin. Initially this was version 2.0.4 but following a critical bug 2.0.5 was released to hot fix this issue. In hindsight, this should have been 2.1.0 due to the number of code changes. Sorry to those who were impacted by this issue. It slipped the net during testing and is part of the reason for this blog.

Wordpress 5.5 supports XML sitemaps With the release of Wordpress 5.5 there are some interesting new developments included. Not least Version 5.5 of Wordpress includes support for XML sitemaps, a long overlooked feature and the reason for many sitemap plugins existing, including ours.

Tuesday 14 July 2020

Customise sitemap filenames One of the most requested features was the ability to customise the sitemap file names.
