Problems with google sitemap


every time I edit a product or add a new one, update the file sitemap.xlm using the appropriate add-on. Looking at the file sitemap.xlm I noticed that there are't all products added but only the older ones.

The other problems is: in google webmaster tools if I make a test of sitemap.xlm the result is:

It seems that your sitemap is a HTML page. Use a Sitemap-format supported.

Thanks for any suggestions

Hello gsari,

Thank you for your request.

After adding new products, categories, pages, etc., you should clear the template cache in order to regenerate your sitemap. To do it, open this link in your browser: where is the address of your store and where admin.php is a script file for the administration panel of your store that was renamed for security reasons. Before cleaning the template cache you should be logged in to the administration panel of your store.

As regards the fact that Google denies your sitemap, note that the sitemap can be reached by the following URL: if the SEO add-on is enabled. If it is disabled, you need to add the following code to the .htaccess file located in the root directory of your CS-Cart installation to make this URL working:

RewriteRule ^sitemap\.xml$ ./index.php?dispatch=xmlsitemap.view [L]

Add this line after the following line:

# RewriteBase /

I hope this information will help you.

Thank you.

Yes, you need to generate the sitemap before you will be able to access it.
