XML Sitemap generating incorrectly

  • Hi,

    I have installed RankMath and run the setup wizard to get the sitemap in place. however, it seems to be generating with errors and now produces the following error when I try to view it:

    This page contains the following errors:
    error on line 10 at column 61: Opening and ending tag mismatch: html line 0 and loc

    How can I fix this?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting the support and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Assuming you are using the latest version of all the plugins and the themes (please update if not yet), it would seem like a conflict with one of the plugins or the theme you are using.

    To determine that, please follow this troubleshooting guide:

    Please let us know if you find the culprit.

    Only the site admin would know and your users won’t be affected by this troubleshooting.

    Looking forward to helping you.

    Thanks for getting back – I’ve managed to revolve the issue but it wasn’t related to this.

    The site was hacked a few days ago and needed the malicious files removing from the server before a fresh WP install and reconfiguration of permalinks and RankMath sitemap settings.

    All is OK now.


    I hope everything is OK now and remember, if you have any other questions in the future, know that we are here to help you.

    If you don’t mind me asking, could you please leave us a review (if you haven’t already) on https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/seo-by-rank-math/reviews/#new-post about your overall experience with Rank Math? We appreciate your time and patience.

    If you do have another question in the future, please feel free to create a new forum topic, and it will be our pleasure to assist you again.

    Thank you.
