Xmap - Google Webmater parsing error - blank sitemap on webs

Postby Earthson » Fri Apr 06, 2012 6:48 pm

I am having a bunch of issue with Xmap. I'm hoping people can help me out

I am using Xmap on Joomla 1.7.5 with Sh404sef. Google webmaster rejects my xml code, saying there is a parsing error. I have tried disabling sh404sef support for Xmap, purging cache, and it doesn't help.

If I follow the link xmap gives me, I am presented with a blank page on my site. But, if I view the source, all of the xmap data is there. ??!

Google tells me to validate my sitemap. This is the error I get when I validate it:

Code: Select all
Schema validating with XSV 3.1-1 of 2007/12/11 16:20:05

Schema validator crashed
The maintainers of XSV will be notified, you don't need to send mail about this unless you have extra information to provide. If there are Schema errors reported below, try correcting them and re-running the validation.

For testing purposes, I'll leave sh404sef turned off for now.

Here is the link to my sitemap from a menu item: http://www.laughablenews.com/index.php?option=com_xmap&view=xml&id=1&Itemid=1070

And here is the link from my admin area:

Well, problem solved on my end. I was still running version 2.1. When I upgraded to the latest 2.2.1, all worked out. Thanks for the great program!
