[Zen Cart] MSU Sitemaps and msu_tweak.ini

Postby JRayfield » Sat Feb 13, 2010 1:03 pm

I see reference to a file, msu_tweak.ini, in the sitemaps.php file, but I don't see any information about that file anywhere else. It appears that this file will allow some minor configuration changes to MSU Sitemaps. Can you give me any information about what this file should contain, and what it will allow to be configured?

Also, it would be nice to be able to set different periods for sitemap updates for the various different types of pages on the site. I see a line like this "$sm->addUrlToSiteMap($url, 'weekly');" in all of the individual sitemap .php files. I gather that this controls how often a sitemap is updated/generated? So, if I change 'weekly' to 'daily', then this sitemap will be updated/generated daily instead of weekly?

There are settings in this file which affects both MSU and MSU Sitemaps. See this file for details.

No. Sitemap is updated each time crawler download it.

Ok. I think I understand. So the sitemap is generated 'on the fly' when sitemaps.php is 'executed' by the search engines going to (in my case) www.rayfield.net/sitemaps.php. Is this correct?

So, should I be able to view the sitemap index file pointing my browser at www.rayfield.net/sitemaps.php?

And shouldn't I be able to see a specific sitemap, for example the sitemap for the EZPages, by pointing my browser at http://rayfield.net/sitemaps.php?showmap=Ezpages?

Something is wrong. When Google tried to access my sitemap, it couldn't do it.

"We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit"

Any ideas?
