About the Company

Joomlashack was founded the day after Joomla started, all the way back in 2005. We’ve created and acquired a large collection of Joomla extensions over the years. We also have easy-to-use Joomla templates and the most popular Joomla training in the world.

So you can be sure that if you use our sitemap generator, you have a solid company behind you to support you.

FAQs:

What is a Sitemap?

A sitemap is a collection of links on your website. It creates an index that helps Google and other search engines to find your content.

Why does Google need a sitemap of your site?

It doesn’t need it, but it is very helpful to Google. With your Joomla sitemap enabled, Google knows exactly what links/pages are on the site. And it’s all in one place, ordered and in a format that’s very SEO-friendly. Therefore, Google doesn’t have to transverse your entire site looking for pages.

What are the benefits of sitemaps?

The biggest benefit to a sitemap is that your content gets added to Google quickly. With our sitemap, it is able to add your new pages in hours or days rather than weeks or months.

Why is it free? What’s the catch?

There is no catch. We want you to use and love our sitemap generator. You’re free to use it on as many sites as you want. We make our money by selling some extra features (like caching) in the Pro version. But you have everything you need in the Free version to create a professional Joomla sitemap.

What are the Technical Requirements?

Joomla 3 and PHP 5.6+.

How can I install your sitemap generator?

  1. Download the latest version of OSMap
  2. Go to your Joomla administrator
  3. Extensions -> Manage -> Install
  4. Upload OSMap and click the Install button

How can I upgrade to the latest version?

We integrate with Joomla’s update manager. You can update from your admin area by going to Extensions -> Manage -> Update, select OSMap, and click the update button.

That’s it! Nice and easy.

Alternatively, upgrading manually is the same steps as installing and everything will automatically be upgraded for you.

Can I use your sitemap generator in commercial projects?

Yes, our sitemap generator is licensed under the GPL. So you can use it in personal and commercial project, including in your client projects.

Can I see a demo of the generated sitemaps?

Yes, we have a demo page for both the XML sitemap and the HTML sitemap.

Where can I get support?

Use our contact form and one of our team will reply promptly. We pride ourselves on our support.

Rempli parfaitement son rôle.
Les sites maps sont très bien gérés.
Je ne l'ai pas resté sous J4
Ease of use
Très simple d'utilisation, intuitif.
La documentation est suffisante pour un utilisateur débutant.
Support
Je n'ai pas eu besoin du support.
Par contre si le site doit être passé sous J4, je pense que j'aurais besoin du support.
Documentation
Complète et claire. Toutes les questions ont leur réponse.
Je n'ai pas eu besoin de plus.
I used this to: Sitemap d'une boutique Hikashop.
Le composant est installé avec le plugin dédié de Hikashop, tant au niveau des produits que des images.
Functionality
Sitemaps generation to improve SEO for search engines. Worked for years on Joomla 3 but on Joomla 4 keeps throwing errors
Ease of use
It's actually very easy as it can be linked to menu. There is no need to learn how to use. But XML is broken by errors in code
Support
Sadly it's required to join and contact on Facebook groups as there is not a tickets system
Documentation
I used this to: I was used to install this plugin on all my websites for several years, but experiencing issues while migrating them to Joomla 4. If the developer won't make it fully compatible i will have to look for a different one
Owner's reply: Please do not believe this review. OSMap works on both Joomla 3 and 4. The Joomla 4 version was released over 8 months ago.

Unfortunately, this reviewer is a spammer. They are involved with another Joomla sitemap. They regularly create fake accounts and leave these fake reviews. We have reported this review and hope the JED team remove it quickly.

If you want to contact us about OSMap, our support is open to everyone: https://www.joomlashack.com/contact-us/

Could be better

Sitemap for website, articles and menus and automatic generation
Ease of use
Very easy but do a few useful things, i can't find the sitemap to publish on the website but only links
Support
Not possible i know i use the free one so no complain, only forum for pro
Documentation
There is no documents for the plugin i find nothing on their website
I used this to: Company website for google Website for companies in my country Website for companies in my country
Owner's reply: As a developer, reviews like this are very frustrating. The support and documentation links are right here on this page. There's a big "Support" button and a big "Documentation" button in the sidebar. But the reviewer says they can't find them. If this reviewer took 2 minutes to click those links they would solve their problem and realize how to find the sitemap.

Here are those links again:
