Sitemap Module Google Webmaster Errror

Support (Resolved)

Howdy. I just installed Sitemap Module (EE2) and attempted to submit the sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools and am getting the error below. As far as I can tell, I have set it up the channels/inclusions/exclusions correctly and submitted the URL for the sitemap (http://www.mysite.com/home/sitemap) correctly. I’ve seen others report similar errors and I have pressed “Update Channels” and/or “Update Locations” (three separate times) before resubmitting, but to no avail.

Hey Ben. Just logged in to quickly report that the issue seems to have resolved itself overnight. Even after I validated that the sitemap was okay, and that new content was being added to it perfectly, Google was still showing the errors, which made no sense. But I just tested it again, and Google is no longer showing the error (perhaps it was my pinging our latest article yesterday), so thank you! The app is great.
