Module: XML Sitemap

Recommended Posts

I'm using the Markup Sitemap XML module to automatically generate a sitemap.xml file, and a custom template to add markup for images and exclude specific page templates.

I discovered that when I view the sitemap.xml in Chrome, it looks as how it was intended based on my custom template. But in Safari, the custom template is ignored and the sitemap.xml file that is generated is the equivalent of not using the custom template at all. In fact, when I delete the custom template from the server, both Safari and Chrome display the same sitemap.xml content.

My sitemap.xml file validates, so I'm confident that there isn't anything in my code that is causing the issue. Unfortunately, my submitted sitemap through Google Search Console is picking up the incorrect Safari version and generating errors for pages that aren't publicly viewable on the site.

Here is the url to the sitemap file:
https://processinteractive.com/sitemap.xml

Has anyone else experienced this issue? I'm not sure if there is a fix unless it is in the module itself.

What do you mean with "custom template to add markup for images..."? The output is just XML. Why would one browser display another XML? That makes no sense.

Do you mean "if logged in as superuser I see another XML as when not logged in"?

Also, maybe you should have posted in the module support threads instead:

@Lance O., are you using Markup Sitemap XML, which is the earlier module from Pete, or Markup Sitemap, which is a newer one developed by Mike Rockett?

As Dragan said above, you should always post module-specific questions to the existing support thread for that module. Let us know which module you're talking about, and I can merge this thread to the correct module-specific support thread.

Thanks!

@gragan Ah, you are correct, the custom template for the sitemap.xml file is only displayed when I'm logged into PW. Good catch!

Sitemaps can support images to help them appear in Google Image search results:

Yes, maybe I should have searched for the module support thread instead of clicking on the broken link directly from the module itself:

@teppo I was using Pete's Markup Sitemap XML, but apparently it has some bugs. I've installed Mike's Markup Sitemap module and it seems to have resolved the issues I was experiencing. I wish it had support for the image license, but otherwise feels like a nice update.

Edit: Looks like it does support image license.

Edit 2: But unfortunately it doesn't look like the image license is working correctly. I've reported the issue in that module's support thread:

I tried to install the module on my localhost and it worked great! Then I transferred the website to my real domain, but the links in the sitemap still direct to my localhost. can someone please help me.

      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.

      @Sergio asked about the pdf creation process in the showcase thread about my 360° feedback/survey tool and so I went ahead and set my little pdf helper module to public.
