[Rank Math SEO Plugin] 404 Sitemap

Recommended Posts

The sitemap function on Rankmath has put errors onto the 2 sites I am using it on.

Both sites I checked today and the sitemap page goes to a 404 page

I was alerted to this by google console today which says the sitemap has a general http error

I was wondering what your thoughts were on this. It does not seem to be a big issue, or is it? What do you advise?

I also have a second question:

Should the Ping search engines be turned off under sitemaps general settings, since wordpress settings, writing, already does this?

Hello,

We are really sorry about the trouble this must have caused.

Please head over to WP Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks

Hit the save button once. That should get rid of this issue.

If not, please update the sensitive data section with your WordPress logins so that we can take a closer look.

Thank you for that reply, I hit update for both and hopefully it helps re adjust.

I also have a second question:

Should the Ping search engines be turned off under sitemaps general settings, since wordpress settings, writing, already does this? Will they conflict?

Hello,

Glad that helped.

No, that option is fine and runs independently. That won't hinder with WordPress's function.

Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know. Thank you.
