Missing some menu items of type External URL

Postby bri.m » Thu Sep 13, 2012 8:59 pm

I have a menu which is structured as:

    Articles » Single Article
      Articles » Single Article
        Articles » Single Article
          External URL
          External URL
          External URL
      Articles » Single Article
        Articles » Single Article
          External URL
          External URL
          External URL

The site map that is generated includes only the first External URL in each set as in:

    Articles » Single Article
      Articles » Single Article
        Articles » Single Article
          External URL
      Articles » Single Article
        Articles » Single Article
          External URL

This looks like a bug. How can I get all of the External URL menu items to appear in the site map? Sorry, this is an internal site but I can provide any additional details you might need to determine the problem if you let me know what you need.

Thank-you

I was able to figure out a solution. The urls for each of the menu items of type External URL were similar to:

index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=303&Itemid=271&tab=customer-focus

I found another similar post in the forum where you recommended ensuring external urls begin with a slash. That did not work and in fact resulted in 404 errors when choosing those menu items. What did work was removing index.php from the urls so that they read similar to:

?option=com_content&view=article&id=303&Itemid=271&tab=customer-focus

Once I made that change, the menu items worked and they showed up in the site map.

So I'm not sure if you would call this a bug but it does seem to be an "undesirable" feature (unless you document it somewhere of course :)

Hi, what version of Xmap are you using? I wasn't able to reproduce your problem with Xmap 2.2.1

I'm using 2.2.1 and I've tried using the full URI - including the http:// as well as the domain name - for the link, simply using /us/ which is the sub-directory and destination for the link, but can't get the link to show up in the sitemap.

Links that are generated by Joomla all work fine. But the external links (at least mine) don't seem to be found by Xmap.

Any suggestions? I see this thread is nearly a year old, but obviously the issues still exists. I've read another thread of almost the exact same issue in this forum and that hasn't had a resolve either. The date on that one is only a couple of months old.
