    If you can't find a sitemap plugin for your forum platform, you can also try software solutions like A1 Sitemap Generator, GsiteCrawler etc. (Try search Google for more alternatives)

    Your forum will have 1000's of pages which you will have a problem scanning. Google really doesn't require a sitemap anymore. They will scan your forum no matter what.

    Think about converting to another CMS like IPB or XenForo.

    Hi,

    If your site has less than 500 pages then sitemapgenerator is the best site to generate xml sitemap for free or if it is more than 500 then xsitemap is the also very good site.

    Cheers!!!!

    Xsitemap doesn't generates any txt file of XML sitemap. So how can I submit sitemap to my file manager?

    Hi,

    I think you need to check it one more time. It generates xml file. Just download it, upload same file into root level and submit it into webmaster tools.

    You can take support from Google but if you really want to get sitemap, you can let me know about your site, I own software which would generate sitemap, and I will create and will send that to you. It would be simple work for me and I'd be happy to help you.
