XMAP & VIRTUEMART 2?
« on: January 04, 2012, 11:03:23 am »
Hi I am using the xmap component/plugin to generate a sitemap to google, it picks up all my pages but none that have been created in Virtuemart.
I have added over 300 new items to the online store in the past 3 days yet according to xmap & google webmaster tools i only have 9 pages.

I was originally using JoomShopping before the new year and they had an extension that could be installed within xmap that allowed it to pick up each product and category. I have searched high and wide and can't find anything. I don't really want to go back to joomshopping but if the products arent crawled by google then it ruins the whole point of being an online shop.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and my apologies if its in the wrong section.

VirtueMart pages in Joomla 1.7 are crawled by Google without requiring a sitemap, so I'm not sure that Xmap is actually required.

I am using Joomla 1.5 not 1.7, i was on 1.7 but found that my template wasnt working correctly.

Hi,

Anybody got this to work? I use Joomla 1.7.3 and virtuemart 2.0, xmap 2.2.1
The sitemap generates joomla menu items but not virtuemart ones. I even made a link to virtuemart shop but it still dosen't work.

Thanks.
I adore Joomla & Virtuemart!
