FAQ

How can I fully disable sitemap generation?

You can use remove_action( 'init', 'core_sitemaps_get_server' ); to disable initialization of any sitemap functionality.

How can I disable sitemaps for a certain object type?

You can use the core_sitemaps_register_providers filter to disable sitemap generation for posts, users, or taxonomies.

How can I disable sitemaps for a certain post type or taxonomy?

You can use the core_sitemaps_post_types filter to disable sitemap generation for posts of a certain type.

By default, only public posts will be represented in the sitemap.

Similarly, the core_sitemaps_taxonomies filter can be used to disable sitemap generation for certain taxonomies.

How can I exclude certain posts / pages / users from the sitemap or add custom ones?

The core_sitemaps_taxonomies_url_list, core_sitemaps_users_url_list, and core_sitemaps_posts_url_list filters allow you to add or remove URLs as needed.

No UI option is exposed for this.

How can I change the number of URLs per sitemap?

Use the core_sitemaps_max_urls filter to adjust the maximum number of URLs included in a sitemap. The default value is 2000 URLs.

How can I change the appearance of the XML sitemaps in the browser using XSL?

A variety of filters exists to allow you adjust the styling:

  • core_sitemaps_stylesheet_url – Filter the URL for the sitemap stylesheet.
  • core_sitemaps_stylesheet_index_url – Filter the URL for the sitemap index stylesheet.
  • core_sitemaps_stylesheet_content – Filter the content of the sitemap stylesheet.
  • core_sitemaps_index_stylesheet_content – Filter the content of the sitemap index stylesheet.
  • core_sitemaps_stylesheet_css – Filter the CSS only for the sitemap stylesheet.
Does this plugin support `changefreq` and `priority` attributes for sitemaps?

No. Those are optional fields in the sitemaps protocol and not typically consumed by search engines. Developers can still add those fields if they really want too.
