generating sitemap file on latest version of concrete5

Permalink 1 user found helpful
I just put my site up and I was reading about how to generate my sitemap for seo optimization and I couldn't find the options people were writing about. Maybe it's because it was for an older version? What do I have to do to generate my sitemap using the latest version?

Its auto generated but if your not seeing it you can always use a sitemap generator (just google it will come up right away) and slap that in. Now link it to your google webmaster account and make any changes such as removing pages you dont want in the sitemap from webmaster tools.

You can actually run this job manually.
From the Dashboard, you go to the System & Settings section.
From there, you need to go to the Automated Jobs option under Optimization.
There you should see a list of jobs - click on the small play button to the left of the Generate Sitemap File job.

Do you know what version of Concrete5 this functionality was included with or how I can add it to 5.4.0.5?

Hi

The oldest version of C5 I have access to is 5.4.2.1

You can find this function on the Dashboard under the System & Maintenance screen. There is a Jobs tab with a button where you can run the selected jobs.

I have attached a screenshot of what I can see - not sure if it looks the same in your version of C5

Hope this helps

James,

Thank you for your response, however even in the same place I cannot see that job listed in there. Is there some way to programatically add in a job and then make it reference that code? I suppose I'll google a bit and then get back to you guys.

SOLUTION!

I ended up finding that all jobs were located in {concrete-install-path}/concrete/jobs. Concrete will show available jobs to install under {concrete-install-path}/jobs so what I have done is
cd {concrete-install-path}
mv concrete/jobs/generate_sitemap.php jobs/
and then the job showed up athttp://{concrete-url}/index.php/dashboard/system/jobs/...

Thank you for your help on this issue jheanly.
