Fresh install & some issues with Sitemaps

Postby Brett » Wed Jun 10, 2009 10:02 pm

Hello killer project you guys have going on here. I am pretty impressed.

I took the latest pre-mod and updated my forums, pretty much everything is working how I expect it to but I have one minor minor issue and one major issue with sitemaps.

http://forums.herphut.org the Sitemap Index is failing to resolve for me. I am not sure what I missed here and of course can't push out a sitemap to google for this reason. I do understand I have pretty much no content could this be the issue? I would like to get my forums SEOing from the beginning.

Also in IE8 I get this error when veiwing my rss page located here ; http://forums.herphut.org/rss/news/rss.xml.gz

Code: Select all
Webpage error details

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/4.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; InfoPath.2; Tablet PC 2.0; OfficeLiveConnector.1.3; OfficeLivePatch.0.0)

For the sitemaps, it normal, you will need at least ten topic in a forum to have one generated.

For the RSS, not that error are only related to XSL transform, so your RSS feeds are still valid and working : http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url= ... rss.xml.gz

About the error itself, it's pretty hard to debug since IE is not providing with much info (the xsl stylesheet is compressed and actually served on a single line), but you can try on thing, in style/youtheme/gym_sitemaps/gym_rss.xsl, try to delet that line :
Code: Select all
<a href="http://www.addthis.com/bookmark.php" onclick="window.open('http://www.addthis.com/bookmark.php?wt=nw&amp;url={link}&amp;title={title}', 'addthis', 'scrollbars=yes,menubar=no,resizable=yes,toolbar=no,location=no,status=no,width=620,height=560,left=200,top=100'); return false;" title="addThis : {title}"><img src="{T_IMAGE_PATH}addthis.gif" alt="addThis" /></a>


It's only a bookmark link, and it could be the guilty one here. Once done, delete GYM's content cache (gym_sitemaps/cache/) using the maintenance link in RSS acp, and clear your browser's cache once done too.

dcz thanks a bunch, I'll give that a go!

When you say 10 topics in a forum, do you mean 10 total or ten in each forum?

At least 10 within at least a given forum ;)

You can lower this threshold in acp, but sitemaps are pretty much useless with few topic, they are mostly useful to provide many url at a time.

mm, this one will be hard to investigate on.

Try deleting :
Code: Select all
                           <div class="signature">
                              <b>{L_BOOKMARK_THIS}</b>&#160;
                              <a href="http://www.scoopeo.com/scoop/new?newurl={link}&amp;title={title}" title="Scoopeo : {title}"><img src="{T_IMAGE_PATH}scoopeo.png" alt="Scoopeo" /></a>&#160; 
                              <a href="http://www.wikio.fr/publish?url={link}&amp;title={title}" title="Wikio : {title}"><img src="{T_IMAGE_PATH}wikio.gif" alt="Wikio" /></a>&#160;
                              <a href="http://digg.com/submit?phase=2&amp;url={link}&amp;title={title}" title="Digg : {title}"><img src="{T_IMAGE_PATH}digg.png" alt="Digg" /></a>&#160;

                              <a href="http://www.nuouz.com/addNews.aspx?url={link}&amp;title={title}" title="Nuouz : {title}"><img src="{T_IMAGE_PATH}nuouz.png" alt="Nuouz" /></a>&#160;
                              <a href="http://reddit.com/submit?url={link}&amp;title={title}" title="Reddit : {title}"><img src="{T_IMAGE_PATH}reddit.png" alt="Reddit" /></a>&#160;
                              <a href="http://www.addthis.com/bookmark.php" onclick="window.open('http://www.addthis.com/bookmark.php?wt=nw&amp;url={link}&amp;title={title}', 'addthis', 'scrollbars=yes,menubar=no,resizable=yes,toolbar=no,location=no,status=no,width=620,height=560,left=200,top=100'); return false;" title="addThis : {title}"><img src="{T_IMAGE_PATH}addthis.gif" alt="addThis" /></a>
                           </div>
