Missing Category Sitemap

  • Resolved Justin Punio


    I’ve recently changed theme from Newspaper X to GeneratePress, which is the only major change which may be related to my issue.

    I have checked the box for category sitemap in RankMath settings but it leads to a page cannot be found.

    Also all posts have a category assigned to it.

    I have gone to settings and clicked save settings to flush the permalinks, but the issue still persists.

    Could you help? Thanks

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.
    We might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.
    Sensitive Data Section

    It is completely secure and only our support staff has access to that section. If you want, you can use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:


    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):


    We really look forward to helping you.


    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.


    I just checked it and I saw you have set as no-index your categories so they are not being added to the sitemap. If you want to add them to the sitemap, you should set them as index (sitemaps are to let search engines know which pages you want to index).

    Looking forward to help you.


    Since we did not hear back from you for 15 days, we are assuming that you found the solution. We are closing this support ticket.

    If you still need assistance or any other help, please feel free to open a new support ticket, and we will be more than happy to assist.

    Thank you.
