I like the component with one exception; The sitemap is output in a very lass than satisfactory manner.
- When splitting into columns, the component will not make nice even column lengths.
- Changing the sort order of the menus does not act predictably.

Easy to install and use - excellent extension. Webmasters need to be aware that when submitting this sitemap using Google Webmaster Tools, that Google does not like the native sitemap extension (e.g. /sitemap.html) and considers it to be a html page. You can find the fix for this at

Works great, however i also have kunena installed as a closed forum. If you are not logged in you can't see it. Xmap however finds it and shows all the Category / Forum items. However, when you click it you still can't get in (so that's ok).
I would have preferred that it did not show those items.

A simple but very easy to use sitemap generator. I have used this across a few joomla sites and it does it's job well.

Seems there are mixed reviews - it's either the best thing since warm sliced bread, or you've got burnt toast! We have two sites. Works for us, and Goggle seems to love it. For us, it's a "kudos to the authors." You results may vary!

A must have for any site I've set up.

This extension is fantastic in principle but Google would not accept the URL that Xmap indicates should be copied and submitted to Google (and Yahoo, etc).

We submitted and then resubmitted the URL three times. We followed Xmap instructions and even applied a few tweaks as found via forums.

The URL and the links it generated were all manually tested by us and they were valid.

We were using Joomla's built in "Search Engine Friendly URLs." We can't be sure if this had any effect.

After all the positive reviews on this component, we were excited to put it to use. Sadly our experience conflicts with these positive reviews.

At the time of this writing we were using the newest Joomla 1.5.15 with a very new template from Rockettheme.

Makes a strong and vivid view of everything on your website. Striking and remarkable results with just a few keystrokes to install.

This is the sitemap I have been looking for. As soon as I found Xmap I installed it on all my sites.

Works perfect with Google and Yahoo...
