Google Webmaster Tools Error

Google Webmaster Tools Error

Postby thynks » Thu Mar 27, 2008 3:47 pm

I like to think of having a bit of experience with these matters, but this current situation has me stumped.

Using both ArtioSEF as well as Xmap.

The current address for the XMap generated sitemap I have is:
http://premiumhumidors.com/sitemap.html

However, setting this in with Googles Webmaster Tools, I get the following error:
Unsupported file format
Your Sitemap does not appear to be in a supported format. Please ensure it meets our Sitemap guidelines and resubmit.

Can someone please assist in trying to correct this error?
Is there something I can do to repair this?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi, go to your sitemap preferences, there you can find your xml url.

Click the blue arrow on the upper-right corner of your sitemap, in the admin area.

If you have any trouble please come back!

Regards,

i'm getting ...

"Unsupported file format
Your Sitemap does not appear to be in a supported format. Please ensure it meets our Sitemap guidelines and resubmit. "

i think i always was getting this error, but i just gave up .. and haven't been able to submit, then i saw you have a new version so i reinstalled the component.

so far, i've gone back to that old post and deleted the line:

echo '<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="'. $mosConfig_live_site.'/components/com_xmap/gss.xsl"?>'."
";

from the xmap.xml.php file ... still no luck.

any suggestions?
