Description

I must be in the right place: I followed the link "Report a bug".

Arne: Again, thanks for a GREAT plugin! (donated some years ago) Now, I thought I let you know, it's no longer updating the sitemap. We've made tons of changes to the site, noticed a massive drop in Google-directed traffic, checked the sitemap, plenty of links wrong, leading to 404s. Tested it specifically, and indeed: XML sitemap is no longer updating. No caching here.
Worse: Deactivated the plugin, then reactivated. Still not updating.
Worse: Deleted the plugin, then reinstalled it. Still not updating.
The worst: The plugin still shows all historic settings, incl. that the sitemap is in a specific subdirectory as we had it, and plugin SHOWS it there when we click on it, BUT: It isn't even there, proven per ftp!! Odd, hm??

The key problem, missing since all updates over recent years: The link "Regenerate the sitemap" which you had initially. It may well be, that since you left out that link, the sitemap has never updated anymore. Because looking at it, it really seems so! :-(

Thought you'd like to know. Until it's fixed, unfortunately we now had to install a different sitemap generator (but won't donate there, is only interim, hopefully).
