Disable categories instead of menus?

Postby ajeje » Mon Oct 13, 2008 3:29 pm

Hi, I'm in need of a little help to make Xmap perfectly fits my (a bit complex) needs :)

My site is in English, Chiense, Russian, Spanish and Italian, reading this forum I have fixed the problem about the charset and multilanguage sitemaps.

I'm looking to have the possibility to disable from Google sitemap some categories (and not only some menu items) as some titles use special character that aren't supported by UTF-8 and which break the loading of the G sitemap.

Will it be hard to modify? Could it be done with a simple hack of "menu exclude" function? Can anybody point me to the right direction to modify this?

Thanks

P.S.: another thing, but this is maybe a suggestion, is it possible to sort the items in the sitemap so that newest/updated articles are at the top of the G sitemap? I'm aksing this because I have more than 3000 items and if I wait for G to index the whole sitemap... ;)

Hi, take a look at the frontend of your sitemap loged in as super administrator, you will see the option to remove items from your sitemap.

About the sorting option, Xmap doesn't have that option yet, it sorts the items according the menu item options. Take a look at the option for the Content Plugin in Xmap's backend. Maybe you could find it useful.

HI, thanks for the fast reply but I'm unable to find the things you said in your message. In sitemap I cannot find any icon to remove items. It should be in this page: http://football-highlight.com/index.php ... Itemid,56/ ?

If relevant, I'm using Xmapp 1.1 and Joomla 1.0.13

Thank you!

Oops! That's why, I'm sorry!

That feature is new in Xmap 1.2

If I'm not wrong Xmap 1.2 is only for Joomla 1.5?

Do you think it will be difficult to modify the "menu exclusion" function to a "category exclusion"? If you can point me to the right direction, I will try to do it.

Thanks again.
