I found this to be extremely quick and easy to use. However I would like to recommend one addition to the code. You need to make the wrapping div and id and not a class so that what ever CSS you want to apply to it can over write the template's wrapping divs.

The problem I had was that the template we were using had a star for each li tag and the client felt that there were too many stars. I could not overwrite the template's CSS without hacking the code and adding a wrapping div with an id on it.

Other than this one minor issue, I think this is a great component and will be using it for several up coming client websites.

The good: Xmap produces a complete map of the content on the websites I have tried it on.

The bad: All items are tagged as updated daily. This is probably too frequent for individual items, and not frequent enough for the front page.

The home page was identified by its alias not as /

There does not seem to be a way of adjusting the relative importance of pages.

In my opinion this is the best sitemap generator component for both Joomla 1.0 and 1.5. It has also many plugins that works, like for VirtueMart categories and products and DocMan documents.

A truly excellent plugin. Thanks!

One little thing. When you use this to generate an XML Sitemap (for Google etc) it's a good idea to save the xmap-generated text, edit it, then upload it statically to your site.

xmap puts a lot of stuff in the map and is indiscriminate about changefreq and priority tag settings.

Couldn't be easier, easily configurable including CSS templating. Install it, create a menu item to it and it's done.

I love this component as it saves me a lot of time on my part. The problem I'm having though, is with the sectionx extension. It doesn't seem to be creating URLs correctly when joomla SEF is turned on. Please let me know when this is fixed!

Installed the extensions in a matter of moments. No problems with the installation. Lots of options available for my SiteMap. I was particularly happy with the Virtuemart plugin which displays categories and products also. Before this I had tried JooMap and could not get either to come up. I highly recommend this for Joomla 1.5 sites (especially those with VM)

This is a great sitemap, THE sitemap to use for joomla. Joomla 1.6 should include this standard. :)

Functionality is great, also lay-out (CSS stylesheet) is highly customizable. Latest version is native for Joomla 1.5.x.

Good job guys! Congratulations...

This extension worked right out "of the box" (so to speak). I have some material on my site which is 'hidden' and only available to people who have an account. Xmap handled generating sitemaps for people who have an account and people who don't have an account. Each sitemap is unique for each type of user. Thank you for a useful piece of software.

Great job on the latest release. The bug with duplicate URLs in category/section introduced with Joomla 1.5.5 is now fixed. Works like a charm.

Had the program installed in 30 seconds, configured in less than 1 minute, and I was done.
I really like the exclude feature to exclude pages from the sitemap; extremely easy to use and fast to convigure. No problems at all. Great app.
