    Hi – I noticed you have a sitemap.php file. Can you say a bit more about what this does. Specifically, I would like to know if you are creating a sitemap.html file and where I can find it. Google Webmaster Tools is saying I don’t have a sitemap.html file which may be the case!

    Thanks,

    The site is coming along…slowly in my spare time.

    Thanks,

    George

    The theme’s sitemap.php is a template for showing posts and pages in a list. This is just for visitors. You really don’t need one.

    What Google Webmasters Tool is suggesting is to have an xml sitemap which helps get your posts indexed faster by google. Here’s an example using yoast plugin. https://ronangelo.com/post-sitemap.xml

    Yes, you are correct the XML is looking for the XML first, but both Google Webmaster discussions and Yoast both state that the spiders will crawl your sitemap to help get a better idea of how your site information is interconnected.
    See https://yoast.com/html-sitemap-wordpress/

    I would also like to link the sitemap to the 404 page not found page as a convenience.

    In any case, I would still like to know where your sitemap.php is putting its file and how to view it and how to use it.

    Thanks,

    George

    To create an HTML sitemap with the theme template:
    1. Create a new page.
    2. On the right side of the editor select “Sitemap” under Templates.
    3. Publish.
