[COMMENTS]
==========
I have preconfigured this script with "safe" settings that should work well with most hosting environments and site configurations. The default configuration of phpsitemapNG returned a lot of results for rate link, modify link, comment, submit, etc. The configuration I've included eliminates these results, thus further enhancing SERPs.

This module has been thoroughly tested with XOOPS 2.0.x and 2.2.x and does not seem to have any problems. I'm listing it as BETA (version 0.1) until the community has a chance to verify my findings.

You can view a sitemap.xml example that was generated by this module at http://mywebresource.com/sitemap.xml.
