I have a site that is getting very large, and I need to see what nodes have overridden the default XML sitemap settings. I thought I could just create an admin View with a table, and columns that showed the inclusion and priority settings for each node. I was surprised to find that this wasn't possible.

I am willing to try to write this, but I wanted to make sure: Has anyone already started working on this, maybe in a sandbox or somewhere else? I wouldn't want to duplicate effort.

Okay, I wrote it myself:


Should I petition to make this into a separate module, or do you think it should be merged in with the XML sitemap module?

I have polished up my module and applied to have it promoted to a full project. I have added links to the relevant related issues.

+1. Would like to see a patch to review, I think this would make a great feature.

Looks like this needs work then.

Okay, this is why I wanted to create a separate module. This issue is now 16 months old. My module was ready for release a year ago. But, when Dave asked that I add the feature here instead, I obliged him and re-wrote my code.

That was nine months ago.

I spent a lot of time on this. I did everything I was asked. Other people have said that they would like to see this feature. What does it take to get it approved?

Hi Everybody,
I can help test this, I'll provide some feedback early this week.

Came across this after realizing views pages are unfortunately not included in the sitemap.

Has that patch in #7 been working well enough for you? Would really like to fix this asap. Thanks.

@capogeannis If I am reading your comment correctly, then this is not what you are looking for. This allows you to make views that include information from the Sitemap XML module. It does not fix the problem of views not being added to the sitemap.

Ah shoot, sorry. I should have come back and fixed my comment (or removed it). Found my solution via XML Sitemap Custom.

What's XML Sitemap Custom?

I'm also working with a larger site which would benefit from this functionality
