Sitemap XML Ping
- Version: 1.0
- Author: Phill Gray
- Build Date: 2012-01-18
- Requirements: Symphony 2.2.x
- GitHub Repository: http://github.com/pixelninja/sitemap_xml_ping
- Upload the
sitemap_xml_pingfolder in this archive to your Symphony
- Enable it by selecting the
Sitemap XML Pingextension from System > Extensions, choose Enable from the With Selected menu, then click Apply.
Use this extension in conjunction with Sitemap XML. Once the sitemap has been generated, you can select the sections that they relate to in the preferences page and whenever a new entry is created or an existing entry is edited, the sitemap will get updated and ping Google/Bing automatically.
On the preferences page there will be a new section called
Sitemap XML Ping. This is where you select the sections and input your authentication code. To retrieve this code, go to System -> Authors and either edit your own entry or create a new one specifically for this purpose. You need to check the
Allow remote login checkbox and copy the random string at the end of the url (no slashes). Paste the token into the corresponding field in the preferences page.
Due to Symphony not yet having a post delete delegate, the auto pinging won't work when you delete an entry. You will either have to update another entry, or manually ping it in the System -> Sitemap XML page.
Requires Symphony 2.2
