    I was using Yoast plugin before and everything was ok, I changed the plugin to yours and the sitemap is not generating. First impressions very poor.

    Best regards,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math support. I’m sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your sitemap.

    To troubleshoot this issue, please follow these steps:

    • Reset your WordPress permalinks by going to WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks and clicking Save Changes without making any changes.
    • Regenerate your sitemap by going to Rank Math > Sitemap Settings and changing the Link per Sitemap to 201 or anything else and then click Save Changes. You can change it later, this is just to regenerate your sitemap. You can follow this screencast:
    • Exclude the Sitemap files of the Rank Math plugin in your caching plugin. The cache could be via a plugin or from the server. For plugins or Cloudflare, please follow this article:
    • To make sure your sitemap gets updated immediately, add the following code to your site:
       * Filter if XML sitemap transient cache is enabled.
       * @param boolean $unsigned Enable cache or not, defaults to true
      add_filter( 'rank_math/sitemap/enable_caching', '__return_false');

    I have to replace blog name, and removed ndash from the name.
    When I refreshed everything, no it’s ok.
    So you should send this to programmers, for fix.

    I fixed, problem was with
    Long dash in the blog name, I removed this dash and now it’s ok.
