About this pluginDescription

What is a sitemap?

A sitemap is a file where you provide information about the pages and posts your site, and the relationships between them. Search engines read this file to more intelligently crawl your site. A sitemap tells the search engine which pages you think are important in your site, and also provides valuable information about these pages: for example, when the page was last updated, how often the page is changed, and any alternate language versions of a page.

Plugin Features

Easily create a sitemap which is then updated every hour, or can be updated manually at any time via the WordPress dashboard. You can select single pages/posts or entire posttypes that you want to exclude from the sitemap. It will generate both an XML sitemap and an HTML sitemap that you can display on your site via the shortcode or gutenberg block.

We’ll keep search engines up-to-date for you

If there are changes being made to your sitemap we’ll notify search engines for you. You don’t have to submit them manual anymore.

What do we add to the sitemap?

The following URLs are added to the sitemap (with an option to hide them, ofcourse):

  • Pages
  • Posts
  • Post images
  • Post categories
  • Post tags
  • Custom post types
  • Custom taxonomies
  • Additional pages: Add URLs yourself

Robots editor

While a sitemap allows search engines to scan pages faster, a robots.txt file disallows search engines from scanning certain pages. This plugin also comes with a handy robots editor to give you full control over your search engine visibility.

Multilingual

Companion Sitemap Generator also supports multilingual sitemaps. Right now this is only supported when using the Polylang plugin but more plugins will be added upon request.

Multisite

This plugin has support for multisite. Each site will get its own sitemap.

Lol, only this plugin work for me correctly with polylang to create single Multilanguage multisite sitemap without any dances.

It works‏‏‎ ‎:)

Only downside: Settings menu is a bit confusing and the sitemap doesn‘t automatically update when changes are made.

Excellent!

Terrible plugin

Terrible plugin. Multilanguage does not work, everything lags. Tags and categories are not displayed.

Does Not Address XSS Vulnerabilities

By Ken Sim (kwsim539) on March 20, 2023

It has been 1 month since this XSS vulnerability has been reported by WPScann and this plugin has yet to address this issue. I can't have a plugin with this type of security issue on my client's site. Not when there are other options available.

being an impulsive newbie blogger, I struggle days trying to get my sitemaps and robot txt right but in vain. Alas! this plug-in addressed all my pains in a blink of my eye. Kudos to the developers.

Muito bom.
