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.

The support is available on the website but it wasn't helpful in my case, looks like this extension has conflicts
Documentation
I used this to: Generate a sitemap for search engines and visitors on websites using Joomla 3 latest version
Owner's reply: Unfortunately, there is a bad actor at work on this site. They are involved with another Joomla sitemap. They create fake accounts and leave these fake reviews. No-one called Eddie has contacted our support about OSMap. Do not believe this user.

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

The documentation is not 1-star. It is comprehensive: https://www.joomlashack.com/docs/osmap

Ease of use
no problem very quick to install and use have many new Joomla sites and it is quick to use
Support
excellent got a reply with less than an hour for a question I had
Documentation
very helpful and great way to find other ways to use this item eg add to Joomla sites menu
I used this to: My Joomla sites since my host stopped providing creation for new Joomla sites
Functionality
Sitemap is generated based on menu items, however it's useless because links indexed by Google are more than ones included in the sitemap
Ease of use
It would be easy if it had some effect, but no new links have been indexed by Google... totally no advantages using this sitemap
Support
I went through the documentation and forum then having a pro license i've even contacted the support team
Documentation
I used this to: Almost a dozen of websites of our clients, tested this extension very carefully compared to results in Google Search Console. However no real gain thanks to this sitemap, the bot is able to find more links than the ones that OSMAP is able to send. I switched to a crawler sitemap
Owner's reply: Unfortunately, this is a fake user. Someone has been leaving fake reviews on OSMap. "Andrew Mclane" has never been a member of Joomlashack, has never contacted us and in all likelihood, does not exist.

Functionality
It needs some trial and error. Is however no problem. The possibilities to keep pages out of the sitemap and the image-sitemap are super.
Ease of use
It takes some time to check what can be done. Some features seem to have no influence on the HTML or XML Sitemap. Simply try.
Support
Looks OK to me. I wrote an eMail and a quick answer came back. Thanks for that.
Documentation
On the webseite there are some questions. Not for my problem. See below.
I used this to: In Version 4.2.20, Joomla 3.9.x and latest PHP Version, the order of the HTML Sitemap is partly scrambled. SOLUTION: Set "Ignore Duplicated Items" to NO. Although it stated to be a XML Feature it works out on the HTML Sitemap! Simply try, if the order of the HTML Sitemap is wrong
