Google webmaster tools is a nice place for uploading your sitemap. There are several sites around which can create a sitemap automatically. One problem: your weblog has dynamic content. This means you have to update your sitemap every time you add a new post to your blog…

  • In the list a plugin called “Google XML sitemaps” shows up, click “install”.
  • After the installation is done, choose “activate”.
  • You are now ready to setup your sitemap settings in the “XML-sitemap” section of your settings.

Solution 2

  • Goto Arne Bachhold’s website and download the plugin manually
