How do i stop xmap adding news articles headings

Postby process1 » Thu Oct 02, 2008 4:27 pm

Hi there

We have a daily news section on our site with thousands of news articles. Having installed xmap it picks up and adds all of the headlines from these news article to the sitemap index, when all I require are the category headings which they appear under.

Any help is much appreciated

Many thanks

You should take a look at the options for the content extension. That can be found in under the Extensions tab is Xmap's backend.

Set the option for Expand categories to "Never" or "XML sitemap only"

Thanks for that, however when I click save a message comes up which says 'undefined' for both never & xml site map only.

Any suggestions!?

Many thanks!

Hi, which browser are you using? Can you try using another browser, maybe Firefox! Can you please let me know what shows up in firefox's error console when you click 'save'. In Firefox: Tools->Error console.

Go to Components->Xmap then select the tab "Extensions". In the installed extensions look for the Content extension and then click over "Options"

Hi Guilleva

Thanks very much for your quick reply & help, its much appreciated!!
I don't suppose you saw my question about SEF by any chance??

Here's my post;

http://joomla.vargas.co.cr/forum?view=topic&f=5&t=2031

Ive tried everything but its not working.

We are using the SH404SEF component and would like to change the URL so it reads /Sitemap

Do you have any suggestions?? If you need admin access to our backend that's fine.

Thanks very much
