On 2.2.5 MySQL. I activated this extension yesterday. Took a look at the config and let all variables default.
So now what? Am I missing the obivous here? Where (or when) will the sitemap file be created?
I've looked around in several maps in my install but cannot find it.................. :(

As the documentation says, you should be able to see your sitemap at example.org/?xml_sitemap

Apparently that was too obvious................. I thought it would automagically create a file on my server in the map for my canonical host........ But you have to type ?xml_sitemap behind your own url in your browser to get a web page filled with the sitemap lines...... ;)
Perhaps an extra line in the docs would be in order to explain this to us ignorant ones............. :mrgreen:

Is it possible to reorder the url's that this extension generates? I noticed that Google indexes them like they are published by the extension. The main url is on top, followed by the available pages. Pages are followed by entries. I want the extension to generate all entries after the main url and after them all pages.

The indexing order doesn't influence the page rank so I don't see what the problem is?

To answer your question, no, you can't reorder the links without editing the source code of the extension.

I don't mean the pagerank. I mean the order Google indexes url's from my website. First comes the main url, after that all pages and as last the entries. I don't have the proof, but it's a fact that the XML Sitemap orders url's the way Google indexes them. Because entries are the most dynamic on my website, I want them first in the list the extension generates. I'll try to change the code myself.

That was 110% clear from what you wrote, but why do you care? Anyway, you'll get what you want be editing the extension.

I care because Google indexes almost exactly the order of url's the extension generates. And I want the the order I mentioned before. Without trying I never find out if it makes sense. When I know more, I'll write it down here.
