Sitemap index can be read, but has errors

  • Hi RM

    I’ve got sitemaps activated on my site but I’m having issues in my Google Search Console, with it saying “This is not a valid URL. Please correct it and resubmit”.

    Is there a way to make sure the URLs in the sitemap are the full URL rather than:

    /post-sitemap.xml
    /page-sitemap.xml
    /case_studies-sitemap.xml

    Thanks

  • Hi Dave,

    Thanks a lot for your query and we are so sorry about the trouble this must have caused.

    I do not see the sitemap. I am getting a 404 error.

    Could you please do the following:

    1. Head over to WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks

    Hit the save button once.

    2. Go to WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Sitemap Settings

    hit the save button once.

    That should fix the issue.

    If it doesn’t, please do let us know so we can look at this further.

    Hi Todd

    Thanks for your reply. That’s my fault I deactivated after writing that post to test some things out. It is back up now.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    This is very odd, it is likely that there is a conflict with one of your installed plugins that is causing this issue.

    Could you please perform the steps outlined on this page and let us know how this goes:

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi Michael

    Thanks for your reply. I’ve seen my mistake and think I’ve fixed the issue. Very silly on my behalf, I missed, somehow, that a Relative URL plugin was inherited and active from my local dev setup. 🙁
