Hello,

I was hoping that the wp-sitemap.xml in my WPML WordPress install would include both the pages in English and in French.

Could you please let me know if this is doable or recommended?

thanks!

fyi, I have just increased my memory limit to 512.
Noticed this was an issue in the support page of the WPML plugin.

Thanks!

Hi there!

Things are working a little differently with WPML so I can confirm that what you are experiencing is the expected behavior.

WPML puts in "hreflang" tags into each page automatically so a new sitemap link for each language or having all the language URL versions of a link is not needed.

I will leave you a couple of URLs that you can take a look at below:

- https://wpml.org/documentation/plugins-compatibility/optimize-multilingual-websites-using-rank-math-and-wpml/#rank-math-sitemaps-and-wpml

- https://wpml.org/forums/topic/sitemap-shows-links-to-content-in-two-languages/

- https://wpml.org/forums/topic/multilingual-sitemap/

- hidden link

Kind regards,
Mihai Apetrei
