My forum has only 10 pages indexed by google. Don't know why, but it looks like google wants a sitemap so it can index the 2000+ topics that are in the forum.
Your site is https://www.diabeteskatten.nl/phpbb3/index.php
If so, your problem is not the sitemap. Google simply has no access to your forums. Try spoofing your user agent with the Google bot (most browsers have a plugin for that), it says that your board has no forums.
Check the forum permissions of the Bots group.
Wow, thanks for mentioning and what an obscure way this is handled by phpbb. "Fetch as Google" was working all the time, also for forums for which the bots don't have access (which is all of them).
Just assigned read-only access to all public forums so indexing should start to improve now.
