google sitemap validation

I have installed snorockets google sitemap generator. After some problems of my own making I got it to work and it appears to work great.

But when I run my sitemap through a validator I get the following:

[COLOR=“Blue”]Schema validating with XSV 3.1-1 of 2007/12/11 16:20:05

Schema validator crashed

The maintainers of XSV will be notified, you don’t need to

send mail about this unless you have extra information to provide.

If there are Schema errors reported below, try correcting

them and re-running the validation.

* The target was not assessed

Low-level XML well-formedness and/or validity processing output

Error: Expected name, but got for entity

in unnamed entity at line 306 char 94 of [url][/url][/COLOR]

I do generate a sitemap when I input: index.php?target=xml_sitemap but it won’t validate.

Any idea why this would be happening?

Thanks to all for the great help I have received in the past.

Hi Capias, the link you should be using is:


I checked the validation of your site and did find a minor error of my own, however your site validated just fine, don’t worry about what these validators say, as long as google likes your xml sitemap your golden, post your sitemap link in your google webmaster tools admin panel and see what google says…

[b]the fix, in [color=blue]include/customer/xml_sitemap.php[/color] , find on [color=red]line 45[/color] [url][/url] and change to [url][/url][/b]

The results of validating your site are below:
