Surveyor is not creating the sitemap

Surveyor is not creating the sitemap

Hi,

I used surveyor a few times already.

First time, 2 or 3 weeks ago, it created the sitemaps for several dreamweaver sites and it submitted them successfully to all except Yahoo.

Second time, 5 or 6 days ago, it only created the sitemap, but wouldn't submit to anyone. Just sat there and nothing would happen.

Third time, today, it won't create the sitemap at all for a brand new site.

What can be happening?

Thanks!

Can you try running surveyor on the first site you tried to see if its surveyor causing the issue or if its a site issue?

problem solved

I do have to quit DW and restart each time I want to create a brand new sitemap. After the sitemap is created, I have to quit and restart again and then surveyor submits the sitemap. If I don't restart, it won't do anything, it sits doing nothing, not even an error message. This time it submitted to all, even to Yahoo with no complaints!

Although it works if I do that, it'd be nice if I didn't have to quit and restart each time.

Any ideas?

Try deleting your Win/Mac filecache. This thread has a good explanation of how to do this:

Error submitting to Yahoo and to Moreover

Hi again,

I was wondering if you had corrected the submission to Yahoo!. I find that it's very sporadic, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't and I can't tell when it does. Lately though, it seems that it never submits to Yahoo anymore. It always gives me an error :

Sorry, Forbidden.

You don't have permission to access this URL on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Also, when submitting to Morevoer, it gives this error:
The Moreover ping server has been discontinued. Please use the ping server at weblogs.com instead, see api.html for more information.


Please advise.

Thank you!

Can you send me the url for your sitemap so I can do some testing with it?
