wp-sitemap.xml not showing after disabling Yoast

11th March 2021

Wordpress - Miscellaneous

wordpress category

After you have disabled Yoast and want to use the standard wp-sitemap.xml you may have problems.
It will not work and display straight away.

The error you receive maybe a 404, when loading /wp-sitemap.xml can be caused by a number of issues, including the permalinks or rewrite rules. I would recommend to try resetting the permalink structure in WordPress which can be done by performing the following steps:

  1. Login to WordPress
  2. Go to Settings>Permalinks
  3. Clicking ‘Save Changes’ without making any modifications

Add this to your functions file.

This should fix it.
