Re: Sitemap Plugin Update Required

If you want to let it clearly know, use structured data schemas for dates in your posts with the correct time zone designator. You can always set the g.bot to crawl your site more frequently, but I won't get into the reasons of doing it. Already in and now sitemap, meta and structured data all echo...

Re: Sitemap Plugin Update Required

I still don't understand what is your purpose of adding this "+05:30" string at the end of date, as it makes date value in <lastmod> tag invalid. You were right. Google crawled my site and gave me these errors for the following lastmod format; <lastmod>2019-08-10 10:22:26 +05:30</lastmod> https://i...

Re: Sitemap Plugin Update Required

Basically dateModified() function doesn't have any values set, thus SITEMAP_DATE_FORMAT value defined in variables.php has usage only with default php date() function. Thank you.

Re: Sitemap Plugin Update Required

I just realized that sitemap plugin generates <lastmod> value using post's creation date, not modification date. I can confirm this too. Now I have placed the following code, don't know if that's accurate. So far it picks up the modification date if I make any changes to relevant posts. $xml .= '<l...

Re: Sitemap Plugin Update Required

but I don't found the deprecated fields, can you share a link ? 1. According to the official sitemap site, <changefreq> is now an optional tag. https://www.sitemaps.org/protocol.html 2.

Generating <changefreq></changefreq> tags aren't necessary anymore. 2. Ping URLs needs to be updated. private function ping() { if ($this->getValue('pingGoogle...
