Release Notes

4.1.1

SiteTree has a new home on the web. Feel free to send me your feedback!

4.1

This update extends the pinging ability to the Google News Sitemap, and fixes a bug where the Pinging-On-Request wasn't available when all the automatic pings failed.

4.0.1

Fixed a bug that prevented the updating of the information related to the Google News Sitemap when the amount of listed news changed independently of the occurrence of a publishing event.

4.0

The plugin can now produce a third kind of sitemap, a News Sitemap! From which you can exclude content, if you need to, and in which you can include almost any WordPress Post Type, even more than one.

This update also drops the caching functionality, better suited to a dedicated plugin like WordPress Super Cache, which SiteTree natively supports.

3.2

Brought back the pinging facility! Renewed in behaviour and with more functionalities — like the pinging on request.

This update also fixes a bug where the plugin, in tallying the number of permalinks excluded from the Google Sitemap, took account of the binned posts that were flagged as excluded.

3.1

The Ghost Page functionality adds up to the feature-set!

A short intro: a page flagged as Ghost Page is automatically excluded from both sitemaps, not cached by the WP Super Cache plugin and hidden from crawlers without its path showing up in the 'robots.txt' file.

3.0.2

Fixed a major bug concerning the upgrade from SiteTree 1.5.3 and made general improvements.
