Re: asy_sitemap: Google-Sitemap (as-is/for developers)

I updated the download above with very minor changes (added schema for validation, removed double slash, corrected url for sections). I haven’t yet tested it, but it’s probably still an improvement on the older download.

@playpiggy: that date looks valid to me. Maybe the date itself was wrong (in the future?), I don’t really have the time to look at this, if anybody has an idea, let me know.

Re: asy_sitemap: Google-Sitemap (as-is/for developers)

Hi sencer,

Dates in my site map look like this <code><lastmod>2005-05-05T01:21:05-07:00</lastmod></code>
Dates as required from <a href=“https://www.google.com/webmasters/sitemaps/docs/en/protocol.html#faq_specifying_time”>google</a> look like this
2004-09-22T14:12:14+00:00.

the visible difference is that we have a dash

and they have a plus sign.

Admitedly the link above from w3.org (also provided by google in the link that I have in this post) has the format that you authored…

It’s a long shot but what if the – is replaced with a +

Re: asy_sitemap: Google-Sitemap (as-is/for developers)

My guess (without looking) is that it’s adding the global var $timeoffset from your prefs, which will be a negative value if you are in timezones west of UTC, resulting in a minus-sign. Best bet would be to modify the plugin to not change the time based on your timeoffset and just always serve up as UTC.

Re: asy_sitemap: Google-Sitemap (as-is/for developers)

It looks like google doesn’t support the format like <code>2005-09-01T01:07:39+08:00</code>.
It should be <code>2005-09-01T01:07:39</code> or <code>2005-09-01T01:07:39+00:00</code>.


Welcome to the REAL World…

Thanks richard.

Just a quick update: I have not gotten any errors with the google-validation with the current version. Anybody else still having problems?

Re: asy_sitemap: Google-Sitemap (as-is/for developers)

Spencer, just wanted to say “thanks”. It works like a champ.

For anyone else just installing this plug-in, just remember to create a file called “sitemap.xml.gz” in your root directory and chmod it to 666 before using.

I’m having problem with the invalid date:

Invalid date (Line 27)

I’m using TXP 4.0.2 / time zone GMT +02:00. Anyone else still having this problem?

Re: asy_sitemap: Google-Sitemap (as-is/for developers)

Are you using the latest version? I did make some fixes and have not had a validation error in months now.

My dates look like this:
<lastmod>2005-11-09T13:14:53+01:00</lastmod>

and are valid. Please post the exact offending lines here (and take into account that the one sitting on your site, may not be the same as the one google downloaded – so check when there is little happening).

Re: asy_sitemap: Google-Sitemap (as-is/for developers)

Sencer, I’m using that latest version (1. September) unless there is a newer one I don’t know about.

I’m not sure what exactly you mean by ‘post exact offending lines here’. I’m guessing you want to see the line from sitemap.xml.gz file? If so here it is, line number 27:

<lastmod>2005-11-12T09:16:22-08:00</lastmod>

If you mean something else please let me know.

Thank you!
