Problems with URLs

Postby privateace » Mon Sep 15, 2008 8:11 pm

I've been using Xmap for a while now and in the last couple of weeks I've been going through my Joomla Installation and correcting all SEO problems.

Reading through the Google Sitemaps report on my Xmap sitemap, it highlighted some intriguing problems.

This problem can be found at :
I'm not sure if this problem is a extension problem or a sitemap problem, after looking through the code for the extension and the main component I cannot narrow it down.
If you look at the Guides section, the links for the categories and components created are all in the format
.... BUT ...
For some strange reason when the sitemap loads the content item link it reverts to using the format (no www.). This problem is recurrent through any of the extensions as well (Virtuemart and Remository).

Is there any way to force the sitemap to only use the instead of the for the sake of SEO?

Hi, I cannot see what the problem is, if I enter to your sitemap, all the urls have the 'www.' prefix and if I click on any of those links, then I'm redirected to the correct page (with the www.)

Is that fixed now?
