XML Parsing Error: not well-formed

Postby TommyBoy35 » Thu Sep 01, 2011 1:03 am

Hi All,

I am using Joomla! 1.7 and Xmap 2.0. However, I get the following error when I try to view my sitemap:

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: http://knowyourhospitals.com/index.php?option=com_xmap&view=xml&id=1
Line Number 1434, Column 52:<loc>http://knowyourhospitals.com/job-postings?&pid=################&action=post</loc>
---------------------------------------------------^

The arrow is pointing to the "=" between the "id" and the # signs (I omitted my actual ID number). Is there a way to fix this? Can somebody tell me where this file is located? Any advice is welcomed.

In case you'd like to see it, my site is http://knowyourhospitals.com/

Thanks!
Tom

Any ideas where I could even start with this one? Has anybody else had similar issues?

We've had similar issues on J1.5x when dealing with very large numbers of records. Checking your site it says there are 16606 found.

Our experience was that what you may be seeing is a symptom not the real cause of the issue. We found that the real problem was server side in that the server memory got exhausted. Long term fixes were getting the host to increase amount of memory available or restructuring the data into different areas each with their own menu item.

Short term fix was to clear xmap cache and keep retrying we found it would get a little further each time until it completed and displayed a full xml and html sitemap.

We're extensively testing J1.7 at the moment and are finding that the joomla sef can be unpredictable. If you have a development server and are using joomla sef and a 3rd party product such as sh404sef try turning these off and see what happens.

Also consider that some of the search engines get unhappy with very large sitemaps.

Hope these ideas help
