What is CDB?Should I delete my current Sitemap from my root and google?HiFiKabin wrote: ↑Thu Dec 07, 2017 10:37 amIf you decide to use a sitemap, you need one specifically for phpBB This one is in the CDB https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... o_sitemap/
It is not a necessity as Google etc cope well with the forum structure and generally index without any problem.
Just have a forum and it's phpbb. Fixed sitemap too long ago but i can replace it with phpbb own if it makes a difference.posey wrote: ↑Thu Dec 07, 2017 7:34 pmThat's completely up to you and your preferences/site.
If you're just using a forum with phpBB, you might want to use the phpbb focussed one.
However, if you also have an entire site around it, it's debatable.
Also if you've already submitted your sitemap for a while, I don't think it's smart changing it, but I am not an expert on sitemaps.
The CDB is Customization Database. A database of extensions for phpBB which have been validated by their Extensions team, which means the code is solid.
What wrong? Why would not you need a sitemap for? If you are using Google's webmaster, it's good to have a sitemap so it can read what's and makes it easier for google. Am I wrong or misunderstood the importance of sitemap?
It might be good to have a sitemap, but it is not NEEDED. Google is a lot cleverer than most people realise, and will index your forum without any problem.
How check if it is static or dynamic?

As both Mick and I have stated, if you want a sitemap you the one I linked to previously is what you want to use. The static one you have already may be doing more harm than good. Delete it and use the one thats made for the purpose.

You make a (rather unclear) enquiry and they provide you with an answer, in their spare time. So yeah, it might be possible that they don't instantly respond to a topic in General Discussion...
You have to download the SEO Sitemap Extension and place it in your Extensions folder as: root
Then in your Administration Control Panel (ACP) under Customise enable the "phpBB3 SEO Sitemap" extension.
