Google Sitemap Generator 2
Now to see if Google "likes" it !
I have used the sitemap generator for a while and on most of my sites it generates the .xml file in under one minute.
The first time I have downloaded any DW extension - installed in seconds, and produced the sitemap in even fewer seconds. Fantastic - thanks!
What a great extension. I was really down because I could forsee a tedious couple of hours putting together by hand the Google sitemap for my site. Even taking into account the download, install and running of the extension it took less than 10 minutes to produce the sitemap. Boy does it produce it fast!
I'm using Dreamweaver CS3 on OS X... built a sitemap in seconds. Saves me tons of time for each client. Thanks.
It works! Using Dreamweaver mx 2004- Initially did not show up in commands, even tho, the extension managers waid it was installed.
activated/deactivated a couple of times. it ended up working.
Make sure you restart dreamweaver! Now :) I have to understand the priority things :)
Works great but can i change the frequency tags ? , it seems to pick its own frequency sometimes hourly which goolgle may frown upon if i am actually not updating that often. Can i disable the frequency somehow.
This sitemap generator is not good enough at finding all the pages on my site which is only medium large (250 pages or so). I have to spend a lot of time manually inserting pages. The autodetection need to be improved.
Otherwise it is fine!
Fantastic plugin! Usually plugins have bugs and points at which you have to question the programmer's understanding of people like me who just want to click and submit. Well... George Petrov is a superstar!!!!! He is one the rare people who write intuitively; knowing that once the page is created, you will want to save it to Dreamweaver, then submit it.... and he knows what search engines are out there....besides Google. This guy is a treasure.
Other people might have questions about the code...but for a guy like me, when something works this well, I give it a 10/10.
Thank you George,
I downloaded this and had to 'noodle around' a bit before making it all work. NOTE: quit DW first, then activate download, then restart DW and then go to Commands and you'll see that you can generate a sitemap.
Very cool download!
Thanks so much!
Extension crashes/freeze my DW when I startup it (it spinning "beach ball" forever).
Sorry Esa, but you're doing something wrong. I've just loaded it into Dreamweaver CS4 on Intel iMac running 10.5.8 and it works perfectly. Make sure you instal the extension using extension manager from within Dreamweaver, then quit Dreamweaver and it should work without any problems. Brilliant solution - thanks!
I found this extension usefull, effectif and easy expalined. Since I used it my website could be better found on google. Thank u for givn us this for free.
Worked really well for me in DW CS4. Thank you!
I spent longer searching for a sitemap generator than I did installing this fantastic add-on. I came across a multitude of dodgy sites who wanted me to install files or code on my server, or tried to install malicious software (java exploits picked up very effectively by Microsoft Security Essentials). Which shows there is quality stuff for free.
Google Sitemap Generator intergrated easily with Dreamweaver CS5 and virtually automated the whole process. The app was well presented so I automatically trusted it, I'll go back now and verify the code but I trust everything will be good or I'll be back to review my five stars. Thanks for a great tool.
Awesome tool! George, you've done it again! Thank you for creating this wonderful, time saving tool. And, like that's not enough, it's FREE! :-)
The original sitemap worked fine. Now I get insufficient memory message from DW ... with 16GB of memory installed?
Extension Manager says, that Extension cannot be installed
Select Manage Extensions ... from the Commands dropdown menu.
Click the Install icon.
Browse to find the GoogleSitemap201.mxp package and click the Open button in the browse dialog box.
A new entry will appear in the Adobe Extension Manager Dialog box. The Installed column should display northeast directional arrow next to "Google" indicating the installation was successful.
Close the dialog box.
You can run this command by choosing Commands > Generate Google Sitemap...
The extension worked well when site mapping another domain in my site. Not sure what is different here, except that there are 60,000 files in this domain. And setting the generator up to catalogue the files has been strangely tricky.
Dreamweaver Error Message:
At linke 117 of file
getDocumentDOM: Argument number 1 is invalid.
Just wanted to add to my previous post, it's happening when the generator gets to a pdf file. Just tried it on another, small domain and the same error occurred.
I love the tool. I could really use a fix.
I have just discovered an issue that appears to happen when the canonical meta tag is used on a page. The site map generator creates a link on the site map as http://www.mydomain.com/http://www.mydomain.com/
I wonder if you can help. I can't install Googlesitemap201.mxp. It sounds useful from reviews.
I have down loaded Googlesitemap201.mxp. site to my computer.
However the CS5 Extension manager will not install it message come up reading 'This extension can not be installed, it requires Dreamweaver 7 or greater.
I have checked and I seem to have Dreamweaver 11.
What can I do?
it is great extension and also I found it great for keeping google, MSN, yahoo update from sitemap.xml . I like it I create site map for my SEO Company site.
