Ver 2.2.1 works fine with the latest Joomla 2.5.3. Maybe not so obvious but in J2.5 you have to create a sitemap using (New icon) first.

I have been using this extension for 4 months now and it constantly turns into a 404 on it's own for no apparent reason. I can't tell you how many times it just disappears from google and I have to go to my backend and click the XML link to refresh it and then resubmit to google.
"We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit." I am beginning to think it just doesn't work at all with bing because my site map has been pending since December.

I use this tool on every site I build, and the new "google" news xml has helped articles be found in Google News. Nice work. Thanks.

I am installing Xmap on all the websites I build now so I can add the appropriate link to Google Webmaster Tools. Xmap is very well supported in terms of operating with other extensions and offered for free! Thanks Guillermo!

I use X-map on all my joomla websites (in excess of 200 currently!) and I can fault it in the slightest - not had one problem or glitch with it at all.

This component rocks! I used previous version and was pretty happy with J1.5, but now it got even better. No problems with installation, easy to use (deid not have to read manual or anything). I just say BIG THANK YOU to the authors! Great Job!

This extension does work exactly as advertised on 1.7, you just have to set it up properly. As others have pointed out, you have to enable some of the plugins that come with it--the other step that some might be missing is,even if you only have one menu, you have to select the checkbox next to its name in the configuration in order to have it work. When I first installed it, it was not generating a site map, but after I went back to the configuration and checked the checkbox, it worked perfectly. Entire setup (even with my missing this step at first) took less than 10 minutes.

this was working on previous versions of joomla. now on 1.7, xml sitemap can not list all the pages, and html sitemap lists many pages and categories more than once. just a mass... waste of time searching over the internet for a quick solution.

No HTML page is produced. White screen. Using latest 2.2

Waste of valuable time, and the component that used to work and be so valuable, is now ruined for me. Will find another solution for the Joomla sites I build in the future. Do not install this if you have Joomla 1.7

I tried a number of things, but the newest version of Xmap would not install without errors on Joomla! 1.7. Finally, I resorted to a manual installation, and everything works great. The extension is easy to setup and simple to use. Thanks!

This is an excellent component and works exactly as expected. Support from this developer is top notch also. For my case support was so good, the developer created a knowledge base article for future reference. That shows a lot!

This is a good module, very useful. Surprised that it's not considered core Joomla functionality: it's one of the first modules I install.

Quick and easy install. After clicking on extension in Components menu, I was asked to turn on some of plug-ins, so I went to plug-in manager, turned on the one I needed (the main, that is - the content plug-in) and it worked. The only thing that I was confused about, is how to create xml file, in order to send it to google. I found it here:

That was clear enough so I went to google's Webmaster Tools, put the link and it worked!

Whoa! So easy, so quick, so issue free. I tried a different extension before, it crashed my site for a while so now I was wary what this one could do, but this time all went perfectly. No complains.

As stated by someone else, I had problems with Xmap and Joomla 1.7, I do not know if it's because it is not compatible or as they say in the Xmap, Joomla is error. The question is what does not.
