Hi, im getting this error on my sitemap page. How can i fix this?
error on line 1 at column 10: XML declaration allowed only at the start of the document
Thank you for contacting us.
Yes, please tell us to know more about the sitemap tool on your site. We will help you debug that issue.
I have followed that link https://yoast.com/help/xml-sitemap-error/ and found the same issue on your site.
On our demo site, the sitemap link still works fine. http://demo.yolotheme.com/rubino/sitemap_index.xml
I think the issue from another plugin. Can I switch your theme to the WordPress default theme to check? I can affect your site.
will my still go back to my settings or will that mess up my site? Only go ahead and switch if it does not mess anything. I dont want to be rebuilding my site
If so I guess i can reinstall from backup or you can deactivate some plug ins to test instead 1st.
When we change the theme, it also affects some site config. If you have the backup version, you can revert that.
Please check it and let us know again.
Still the same, im not even sure if you did anything?
But if once you change the theme to rest and it breaks and i have to go back to an earlier backup, won't that have the sitemap issue still?
Either way I cant run my website i purchased from you with a broken sitemap. Please still look into fixing it.
We have updated the plugin on your site and it has the issue with the maintenance mode.
Please give us your FTP account, we need to access your site code and remove the maintenance file.
Also my Yoast SEO doesnt work anymore since you did last did something to the site
i tried check the box but diesnt allow it. I have no idea how else to change permission to the file
