Google Webmaster Tools said the tag was missing from the post format sitemap, here is the URL:

http://www.attractionmarketing…..mat.xml.gz

Appears to be nothing in it, so should I drop the format option? What does this post format usually hold in terms of information?

Thank you!

Very good, have dropped that from the sitemap. Will wait and see if it solves the error problem.

Thank you for your help on this!

Paula,

Under All in One SEO – XML Sitemap, uncheck “Create Compressed Sitemap” and click “Update Sitemap”. If the sitemap for post formats is empty, then I’d suggest unchecking Format under Taxonomies as well.

I did both of these and still I get this google message. See the site map generated below and line # 6 noted.
view-source:http://thesewingmachinereviews…..itemap.xml

Now what should I do>
GOOGLE MESSAGE

errors
Missing XML tag
This required tag is missing. Please add it and resubmit.
