    Please don't post on old threads, and especially not when they don't have anything to do with your issue!

    this best askin new discussion @johntang

    if category_1.xml, etc are physical location they should be caught by try, There is no need to put it through vanillia's dispatcher if they are cached files.

    If you need to use pattern matching you can do it, however I'm not getting what it is you wish to match. Are you using a plugin for your site map?

    grep is your friend.

  • have you tried this plugin?

    it handle sitemaps an routes internally.

    grep is your friend.
