    Generate and edit sitemap.xml and robots.txt

    Generate and edit sitemap.xml and robots.txt

    SEO Macro

    Modify robots.txt and sitemap.xml

    Generates a sitemap.xml

    To display a nice excerpt in search engines, the SEO macro on each page helps you define a custom title, page description, image, etc.

    Those files are very important for search engines. If your filesystem is writeable, Play SQL lets you find and write them, otherwise it tells you which files to modify.

    If your website has a reasonable size, generates a sitemap with all public pages, blogs and spaces of your website.

    More details

    It's open-source. If you have specific needs, just fork it from this repository: https://bitbucket.org/aragot/seo-manager

    • SEO macro to define keywords, description and custom title for your page,
    • Detects your robots.txt and sitemap.xml files,
    • If you save, it attempts to create (or replace) the two files in your installation directory.
    • If you site is small enough, it suggests a sitemap for you. It's up to you to modify it.

    Current drawbacks: It doesn't create the sitemap.xml automatically, it only does it when the administrator triggers it; and the generation of sitemap.xml may take up a lot of resources if the instance is too big, because it reads every page in the database in a single transaction. It's open-source, so just fork it and check whether it fits your needs.

    As advertised. Just had to create the sitemap.xml and robots.txt file in the suggested location (sudo touch robots.txt) and then set the files to be read/write by the confluence process (sudo chown confluence:confluence robots.txt). Set the robots file content and the suggested content for the sitemap (auto-generate public pages FTW) and we're done! Already showing as active with google tools.

    This is more than welcomed plugin and I appreciate that the author made it freely available. Still, at this moment it seems that the sitemap.xml generation does not work in Confluence 5.5. the auto-suggest-content page does never end the load and nothing is displayed on the logs.

    Hi Sorin, Awesome, thank you for the feedback. Can you contact me at support+adrien@play-sql.com? Do you have thousands of pages to index? I think I should make it open-source or something. Let's have a chat and discuss it.

    Update: Sitemap.xml generation works on my Confluence 5.5. I've open-sourced the code, so feel free to send pull requests! SEO Manager source on BitBucket.
