I just installed this mod today, and I *think* I set it up correctly, but Google's sitemaster tools tell me the sitemap was "not found". The sitemap I added was http://blueninja.boldlygoingnowhere.org ... itemap.php and it comes up in my browser as what appears to be a proper XML file listing the categories and forums.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance...
EDIT: Doh! I had edited lines 42 and 68 as per the instructions when I was going to sitemap from the root of one site, but only un-edited one of them when I copied to another site that was sitemapped from the forum folder. In the immortal words of Rosanna Rosannadanna, "Nevermind!"
You should do as told I suggest, so only do changes that suites your needs.
As said, you need to change a bit of code if the sitemap is one level up phpbb, doing this partly could result in either the sitemap not working at all or bad links to be outputed. For example if you comment line 69 in a stiemap that stands in phpbb subfolder, you'll miss some "phpbb/" in your url.
So I suggest you double check what you did, check outputed urls in sitemaps (in the provided url it works) and do it on a per config basis (don't mix what to be done for a sitemap at the root and one in the folder).
Besides, obviously, if you want to put the sitemap at thet root level, you also need to actually put it there after thoses two lines changes.
Then talking about google, I don't really understand what are you talking about. You say google cannot find it, but how is it possible ?
It is online, the good url can only point to it so ... So check all of your paths both in sitemap.php and the google set up in your google account, and I doubt google even already had time to first visit your sitemap (it usually take one or two days, can be longer, after reg for first visit so ...).
