Module: XML Sitemap

Recommended Posts

Using the current module you can not exclude, you should use my modified version, see the post above. Check the examples on the linked github page.

Hi!

I installed version 1.1.0.

My site contains 12 pages. In the mydomain.com/sitmap.xml is just the startpage.

Are there some modulesettins i have to change in order to get a correct sitemap?

Thanks an regards!

PS. I also tried the Ryans template solution for the sitemap. It also outputs just the startpage in the xml-sitemap.

Whats my mistake?

PPS. SORRY my mistake! A few parent sites were set to "hidden". After i set them to "visible" the xml-sitemap is fine!

Is there a way to exclude specific hidden pages from being excluded; i.e. include them in the sitemap?

I have installed this module however, I have some pages that are hidden from the navigation, in which I still want them added to the sitemap. I have added a checkbox field called sitemap.  This field allows the user to add to the /sitemap page.

Here is what I use for the sitemap template:

foreach($page->children("include=hidden, sitemap=1") as $child) sitemapListPage($child); 

I need to do the same thing but for the sitemap module. I am having some trouble accomplishing this. Any help would be great.

@Macrura - Good point, already solved my problem! Thanks for the advice. I ended up just building my own template and following ryans advice.  Was able to create an array that pin points the hidden pages I want included in the sitemap.

I'm getting a 404 response when I hit mydomain.com/sitemap.xml. The sitemap data is there, and there are no errors. I understand that the module works by hooking into the 404 page, but I also see in the module code that the header is explicitly being reset to 200. This is an issue because Google Webmaster Tools won't accept the sitemap due to the 404 header. Any suggestions on how to debug this? I assume no one else is having this issue, so it's probably something unique with my setup, rather than an issue with the module itself, though I am not doing anything in my code to override the HTTP response code, to the best of my knowledge.

@Jason,

To my understanding, you cannot see the xml file when you try to access the /sitemap.xml page ?

If so, be sure the xml template settings in Processwire has no checked for, should page URLs end with a slash.

That should get rid of the 404 and Google will pick up the xml, I have built multiple sites with this setup and all work well.

I can see the XML, and it's correct, but the HTTP response code returned in the page headers is a 404 instead of a 200. Webmaster Tools complains about this and won't import the sitemap, even though the *body* of the response is fine.

And now this afternoon, mysteriously, with no changes from me, it is returning a 200 and Webmaster Tools accepted it just fine. So, never mind, I guess...

@jason, glad to see its solved. Keep an eye on it, it should work.

As mentioned, I have used this many times and it works like a champ!

I'm currently getting a 404 when i try to access domain.tld/sitemap.xml

Actually, that URL results in the address refreshing to http://sitemap.xml/

My 404 page template (which I believe this sitemap uses) has no trailing slash enabled so I don't think it's the same issue.

Google WMT is telling me too that there's an issue with the sitemap.

Any pointers on where to look?

Peter, 

Did you add a new template specifically for the xml template?

If so, go to that template setting and remove the end with backslash.

I seem to have a page called sitemap but the template it's based on is a generic basic page and not specifically a sitemap version.

I can't recall where that page came from or why it was created as my understanding of this template is that you simply install it and it'll create the /sitemap.xml

Just looked at my other sites with working sitemaps. None of them have dedicated sitemap templates or even pages with the admin or require those to work.

Based on that, I'm a bit baffled.

Hi guys.

In case it's helpful for anyone to know, I solved this issue.

Client had created an incorrect redirect using the JumpLinks module.

Is there a way to force "www" on the links generated in the sitemap.xml file?

Your web server should be configured to have a single canonical domain to avoid fragmentation of SEO and analytics, and your sitemap should use it. If the "www" version of the domain is canonical, requests for sitemap.xml will be redirected to that domain and the generated links should match. The module simply uses the value of $page->httpUrl. ProcessWire's .htaccess file includes directives for Apache to set a canonical domain, but they are commented out by default. Look around line 123:

  # -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # 13. OPTIONAL: Redirect users to the 'www.' version of the site (uncomment to enable).
  # For example: http://processwire.com/ would be redirected to http://www.processwire.com/
  # -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  # RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
  # RewriteRule ^ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

I should have mentioned that I already have those two lines commented out before I posted my question. But now that I check the sitemap.xml file again, the "www" has been added to the urls. Looks like it may have just been a caching issue. Thanks for your insight!

Update 29.02.16
This update is made for PW 3.0. To prevent endless redirects in 2.7 and lower please read instructions (comments). You need to comment out the line with the redirect.
multilang-sitemap-xml.php.zip

@kixe It doesn't seem to work for me on PW 3.0.47

This is the error I get:

Error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function wire() in […]/www/site/templates/multilang-sitemap-xml.php:116

Hi Pete

I have XML sitemap installed and it's listing my URLs as http://domain.com without the www

The site is set (with .htaccess) to display with the www and this is working. IE any requests for http://domain.com deliver http://www.domain.com. So I'm not sure why it's picking this non www up or where it's coming from.

Additionally, I've disabled ProCache, reinstalled the XML Sitemap Module checked that the source of the actual pages META tags are correct IE

<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.domain.com" />

Any pointers appreciated. 

Pete - think this was a caching issue. All fixed now.

Hi,

wonderful module, but I can't make it work for a multilanguage web site. I only get the results for the default language.

Could anybody share their (working) solution?

      I am happy to present my new fieldtype FieldtypeImageFromPage. It is made up of 2 modules:
      Fieldtype Image Reference From Another Page is a Fieldtype that stores a reference to a single image from another page. The image can be selected with the associated Inputfield.
      Inputfield Select Image From Page is an Inputfield to select a single image from images on a predefined page and it's children.
      And there also is a helper module that takes care of cleanup tasks.
      This module evolved out of a discussion about my other Module FieldtypeImagePicker.  It caters for use cases where a set of images is being reused multiple times across a site. With this fieldtype these images can be administered through a chosen page. All images uploaded to that page will be available in the inputfield.
      When to use ?
      Let editors choose an image from a set of images that is being used site-wide. Ideal for images that are being re-used across the site.
      Suited for images that are used on multiple pages throughout the site (e.g. icons).
      Other than the native ProcessWire images field, the images here are not stored per page. Only references to images on another page are stored. This has several advantages:
      one central place to organize images when images change, you only have to update them in one place. All references will be updated, too. (Provided the name of the image that has changed stays the same) Features
      Images can be manipulated like native ProcessWire images (resizing, cropping etc.) Image names are fully searchable through the API Accidental image deletion is prevented. When you want to delete an image from one of the pages that hold your site-wide images, the module searches all pages that use that image. If any page contains a reference to the image you are trying to delete, deletion will be prevented. You will get an error message to help you edit those pages and remove references there before you can finally delete the image. How to install and setup
      Download and install this module like any other modules in ProcessWire Create a page in the page tree that will hold your images. This page's template must have an images field Upload some images to the page you created in step 2 Create a new field. As type choose 'Image Reference From Another Page'. Save the field. In 'Details' Tab of the field choose the page you created in step 2 Click Save button Choose the images field name for the field that holds your images (on page template from step 2) Click Save button again Choose whether you want to include child pages of page from step 2 to supply images Add the field to any template You are now ready to use the field View of the inputfield on the page edit screen:

      View of the field settings

      The module can be installed from this github repo. Some more info in the README there, too.
      In my tests it was fairly stable. After receiving your valued feedback, I will eventually add it to the modules directory.
      My ideas for further improvement:
      - add ajax loading of thumbnails
      Happy to hear your feedback!

      Although the PW backend is really intuitive, ever so often my clients need some assistance. Be it they are not so tech savvy or they are not working in the backend often.
      For those cases it is nice to make some help videos available to editors. This is what this module does.
      ProcessHelpVideos Module
      A Process module to display help videos for the ProcessWire CMS. It can be used to make help videos (screencasts) available to content editors.
      This module adds a 'Help Videos" section to the ProcessWire backend. The help videos are accessible through an automatically created page in the Admin page tree. You can add your help videos as pages in the page tree. The module adds a hidden page to the page tree that acts as parent page for the help video pages. All necessary fields and templates will be installed automatically. If there are already a CKEditor field and/or a file field for mp4 files installed in the system, the module will use those. Otherwise it will create the necessary fields. Also the necessary templates for the parent help videos page and it's children are created on module install. The module installs a permission process-helpvideos. Every user role that should have access to the help video section, needs this permission. I use the help video approach on quite a few production sites. It is stable so far and well received by site owners/editors. Up until now I installed required fields, templates and pages manually and then added the module. Now I added all this logic to the install method of the module and it should be ready to share.
      The module and further description on how to use it is available on github: https://github.com/gebeer/ProcessHelpVideos
      If you like to give it a try, I am happy to receive your comments/suggestions here.

      A module created in response to the topic here:
      Page List Select Multiple Quickly
      Modifies PageListSelectMultiple to allow you to select multiple pages without the tree closing every time you select a page.
      The screencast says it all:

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImagePicker. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from a predefined folder.
      The need for it came up because a client had a custom SVG icon set and I wanted the editors to be able to choose an icon in the page editor.
      It can also be used to offer a choice of images that are used site-wide without having to upload them to individual pages.
      There are no image manipulation methods like with the native PW image field.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImagePicker
      Kudos to @Martijn Geerts. I used his module FieldTypeSelectFile as a base to build upon.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      Hope it can be of use to someone.
      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Eventually this will go in the module directory soon, too.
