Hi, I just installed the new version of the sitemap plugin.
The main link seems to work:
But when I select one of the category link, for example:
My browser shows a 'Page Not Found'

Is it normal?

It doesn't seem to be normal. What is causing this? The Sitemaps addon is useless with this problem.

    How could generate sitemaps with all discussions reference? Thank you

  • Are you sure you did not disable that plugin on your vanilla forum? Secondly, I think you don't have a general category anymore on your forum. So, that XML should be absent.

    this is not normal. Google Webmasters Tools will read it as error.

    This is what happen at my site when i submit the sitemap at GWT. Please check your hosting rewrite rules. this is my Nginx config at my site.

     location / {
                    try_files $uri @rewrite;
            location = /sitemapindex.xml {
                    try_files $uri @rewrite;
            location ~* /sitemap-(.*).xml {
                    try_files $uri @rewrite;
            location @rewrite {
                    rewrite ^ /index.php?p=$uri&$args last;
