iTx Technologies is proud to present its open source Simple Google Sitemap XML for Wordpress to the community!

Description

Simple Google Sitemap XML generates a valid Google XML sitemap, which can then be used with Google's Webmaster Tools.

This plugin is meant to be simple. It just works! You can tweak some settings in the admin though, like priority and frequency.

You can now tweak the following settings in the Options panel :

  • enable/disable priority and/or frequency
  • enable/disable the tags
  • enable/disable the categories
  • choose to store your sitemap XML file in the root of your website or in the plugin's directory

Every time you publish a new post/page or delete a post/page, a new sitemap is created automatically which means you don't have to do anything !
