Site Tuning /robots.txt
Problem reported by Jade Stephen - August 29, 2014 at 10:31 AM
Resolved
Hi Guys,
 
We have tried everything we can think of and then some. We are performing a site tuning scan on the page http://ninasdreamhomes.com and getting a high severity issue: 
 
/robots.txt
"Missing Sitemap Page"
 
The sitemap is listed correctly, and passes xml validation, but this still comes. Any help would be appreciated this is happening for all our users and driving us crazy!

Jade,
 
This was in fact due to a bug that has been fixed for the next minor release of SmarterStats 9, due out later this week, on 9/4/2014. 
 
The cause was an XML Mime type that was not getting correctly identified as XML.
 
We have tested the fix against the site you mentioned and it does correctly find the sitemap file as it should.

Hi Grady.

As this is a bug and causing us a major headache, is there a hot fix file that could be applied on this to resolve the issue until the update comes out?

Not really. If it's going to be more than a few days we usually will make one, but it's going through final QA for tomorrow's release so it wouldn't be a good idea. I will post here once it's out, however, if that helps.
