SPECIALIZED SITE MAPS
---------------------
You can create specialized site maps using Views. To do so, enable both Views
and XML Sitemap: Node and create a new view. In the Page settings, choose XML
Sitemap: Sitemap as the view type for a regular site map or XML Sitemap: News
for a Google News site map.

KNOWN ISSUES
------------
Users who have not enabled clean URLs have reported receiving an
"Unsupported file format" error from Google. The solution is to replace
"?q=sitemap.xml" at the end of the submission URL with
"index.php?q=sitemap.xml". Submission URLs for each search engine can be
30
configured at http://www.example.com/?q=admin/settings/xmlsitemap/engines.
