Extends GoogleSitemaps to allow for multilingual sitemaps according to Googles requirements. Supports translatable and silverstripe-languagePrefix. See: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2620865?hl=en&ref_topic=2370587
This module is considered beta: working, but not thorougly tested.
Provide multilanguage support in GoogleSitemaps, including alternatives, for
sites using the Translatable module. It follows the Google requiremnts explained here:
Sitemaps: rel="alternate" hreflang="x"
Copy to your Website root, using any name you want, then do a ?flush=1 to
renew your YAML files and templates (If the proper template doesn't seem to be
used, try a flush=1 on sitemap.xml as well).
by default the pages'
Locale property ('en_US', 'nl_NL') will be used to generate the alternatives
for each page in the sitemap. You can define some locales as generic for a given language, so that for instance
en is presented to english spoken users, instead of
In your _config/translatablegooglesitemaps.yml:
--- Name: translatablegooglesitemaps --- TranslatableGoogleSitemap: generic_locales: en_US: en nl_NL: nl
By default in GoogleSitemaps, the max number of pages in a single sitemap is set to 1000. Since the language alternatives for translated pages add substantially to the sitemap source, you might want to turn that down a bit for large sites:
In your GoogleSitemaps module, in _config/googlesitemaps.yml:
--- Name: googlesitemaps --- ... objects_per_sitemap: 1000
Note: works with the SilverStripe LanguagePrefix module
