Hello

Problem 1: I have just uploaded the All in One SEO Pro plugin to my website and have found that my blog and art galleries which are two of the most important parts of my website (as I am a digital artist) have been automatically placed in the the excluded items category of the sitemap. I have left the boxes unchecked, but am not sure how to rectify the problem.

Problem 2: When I leave the Enable Sitemap Indexes box unchecked I am unable to generate a sitemap ( I just get a blank page) but when I select the Enable Sitemap Indexes box I can generate 16 sitemaps. This website is small, only 50 posts at this stage but is heavy on images (all are optimised for the web so that the file sizes aren’t too large).

When I load this sitemap into webmaster tools I can see that the URLs for the art galleries are showing as invalid, which I think may be to do with the way the Organic themes, Photographer theme is set-up, so I am wondering if there is some link between the URL errors and the galleries being listed in the excluded items category.

Hi Peter

Thanks for your assistance. In regards to the invalid URL’s, webmaster tools shows that there are 27 errors in the sitemap and it looks like 21 of these errors are invalid URLs related to the art galleries.
This is one example of how it is reported:
Error, Invalid URL – this is not a valid URL please correct and resubmit.
Number of errors – 10
Example: URL:/category/galleries/triptych-collection. Parent tag: url, Tag: loc, Line – 166
Example: URL:/category/galleries/new-zealand-flag-design-ideas. Parent tag: url, Tag: loc, Line – 172
Example: URL:/category/galleries/3d-collection. Parent tag: url, Tag: loc, Line 190

The website is under development but what I can do as we are located in different time zones is temporarily take the splash page down overnight New Zealand time so you can have a look at the website which is http://www.sandrareid.com

Regards
Sandra

I have managed to sort all the problems out with the invalid URL’s, errors and blank sitemap.

It was a bit tricky to resolve the issues with the URL’s but by a process of excluding and including certain categories and galleries I managed to sort everything out.
