Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Site Tree?

It actually is a Site Map, a human-oriented listing marked up in HTML5 of the most prominent content of your website.

Is there any chance of running into conflicts with the Core Sitemap functionality introduced with WordPress 5.5?

No, there isn't. The plugin automatically disables the Core Sitemap functionality when the Google Sitemap is active.

Are the XML Sitemaps produced by SiteTree human-readable?

Yes, they are. Although the Google Sitemaps and the Google News Sitemaps are crawler-oriented sitemaps, they are all equipped with an XSL Template that makes them human-readable.

Can SiteTree generate Google Sitemaps complete with Change Frequency and Priority metadata?

Starting from SiteTree 3.0 the plugin no longer has this ability, become obsolete by now.

What are the system requirements of SiteTree?

You can instal SiteTree on any version of WordPress following WordPress 5.5. The system requirements are the same as WordPress.

If you need to instal SiteTree on a multilingual website powered by WPML, please note that to work effectively SiteTree will need WPML 4.4+ and WPML String Translation 3.1+

Can I activate my Licence Key from my local development environment?

Yes, you can activate it without affecting its limit of activations as long as your local domain is 'localhost' or it meets one of the following conditions:

  • *.dev
  • *.local
  • *.localhost
  • dev.*
  • staging.*
How do I completely uninstal SiteTree?

Please, follow these three steps:

  • Go to the 'Advanced Settings' screen of SiteTree and tick the 'On uninstalling' setting.
  • Deactivate SiteTree from the 'Plugins' screen.

Will I lose my settings by upgrading from SiteTree 6.0 or older?

Absolutelly not.

If you are upgrading from SiteTree 1.5.3 however, your general settings will be lost. Your preferences about whether or not to exclude a Post or Page from the sitemaps will be automatically upgraded. Instead, the Change Frequency and Priority metadata that you might have set for some Posts or Pages will be deleted from the database, because they have been deprecated.
