Hi Everyone,

Below is an updated google sitemap generator for use with google webmasters tool to generate category, manufacturer, information, category and product sitemap for google indexer. Indeed the same sitemap can be used for Bing and other search engines.

We used it while developing our online store here and found that it was having an error with timestamps. So we updated it to include timestamps.

This if for general community consumption. If you have any questions let me know.

Kind regards,
Genglob Administrator

@madany - you can use it on google webmaster tools so that google can read your site easier.

Its work great, but there is one missing. In line 172 & 124 is:

Code: Select all

    echo '<loc>' . $catalog_url .'product/product&product_id='. $product['product_id'] . '</loc>' . "\n";
shoudl be:

Code: Select all

    echo '<loc>' . $catalog_url .'index.php?route=product/product&product_id='. $product['product_id'] . '</loc>' . "\n";

I do not care about my bad English.

how to use it?

God, give me courage to do what I can,
humility to admit what I can't,
and wisdom to know the difference.

Hi,

I just plop it into the root dir, correct?

I notice in firefox it outputs the raw xml code, not parsed by the browser. this is correct?

I'm using it with ocv 1.3.2 and seems to work fine. have you had any issues with older versions?

thanks for creating this sitemap generator!

regards,

takayuki

Hy all,
How do you setup the permissions of the sitemaps directory mentioned in
5. Modify the permission in admin so that you can access Generate Sitemaps in admin.
in the installation.txt file ?

I changed to 777 on a Linux host, but I receive an Access Denied error when I click on Generate Sitemap button I just installated.


Thanks,
jj

OK, I see.

You use an FTP program like Filezilla to set the rights (chmod) to the directory.
Otherwise ask your host.

You can do it (modify the permission) simply:
1. On your administration page, System->Users->User Groups
2. Edit your Top Administrator setting
3. Select All on Access Permission and Modify Permission
4. Save and re-login with your top administrator account
