The light-weight XML Sitemaps Manager allows you to de/activate WordPress core XML sitemaps, change the maximum number of URLs per sitemap and add Last Modified dates.
- Options to disable the complete sitemap index or exclude certain post type sitemaps, taxonomy sitemaps or the user sitemap.
- Change the maximum number of URLs in the sitemaps.
- Add Last Modified dates to posts, terms, users and the first sitemap of each type in the index.
- Conditional is_sitemap(), ticket, and is_sitemap_stylesheet() for good measure.
- Multisite compatible: Can be network activated. On uninstallation, all sub-site options will be cleared from the database as long as not is_large_network().
- Additional fixes and improvents to the core XML Sitemap.
Fixes some core XML Sitemap bugs:
— 404 Response code on certain sitemaps, ticket.
— Don’t set is_home() true, ticket.
— Don’t execute main query, ticket.
— Ignore stickyness, ticket.
Improves core XML Sitemap performance by reducing the number of database queries for:
— the sitemap index by 5;
— each post type sitemap by 4;
— each taxonomy sitemap by the number of terms in that sitemap;
— each user sitemap by the number of users in that sitemap.
