Good evening

The Sitemap is not an extension of my making, I just added the 3.3.x fix on this site until the author updated his extension on phpBB

You can find support HERE on phpBB but as a first setep I would update your board as it is two versions out of date, and also make sure that you have added the sitemap to Google correctly (ie the full url as shown in the configuration page)

I hope this is of help, or at least can point you in the right direction

OK, As a favour I will have a look for you.

Firstly, the sitemap does not exist which is evident by the 404 you get by going to https://sat-forum.net/sitemap.xml What you should be seeing is here sitemap.xml

Firstly I suggest that you disable and delete data of the extension before deleting the extension files.

Then download a fresh set from phpBB, unzip them on your computer (this is a very important point) before uploading and enabling. Then check to see if you can see the sitemap here https://sat-forum.net/sitemap.xml

re your .htaccess file, the ssl redirect you are using is different to the one I use, but everything else looks how it should. The .htaccess file I use can be found in This Topic which includes a Bad Bot blocking script

Exactly what I was saying. Have you removed and reinstalled the extension as I described?

PLUS what have you done to your board in the past week? If it was working but then it wasnt something must have changed

I have never used the "Thanks" extension on any of my boards, much preferring people to post their thanks in the topic a you have done.

In addition there is a 'Buy Me A Beer' button on the header should you wish to use it (you do not have to, I am just pointing it out)
