I use magento 1.7 and i´m trying to update my sitemap (that was generate in 2014) but i´m having a problem in it.
I use : Catalog > Google sitemap and them i choose destination patch and sitemap name. No problem, the module generates sitemap.xml .
But when i access my sitemap file i have the following error : Sitemap Syntax Error .
I checked some articles in some foruns but i can´t solve this problem. I some of them, they say that this is a error in url rewrites in magento 1.7 .
The "solution" was truncate the table core_url_rewrite and them reindex all urls by admin, and then try to create the sitemap again.
I did this in a localhost but I continue to get the : Sitemap syntax error.
Anyone has any idea of what is going on ?
Really thanks guys.
Maybe you could post a link to your sitemap or the sitemap itself here, so the community can see it rather than guess what has happened.
Have you tried validating your sitemap? It may help as the validation can show the errors, I usually use this tool https://validator.w3.org/
