Why doesn’t Yoast SEO create a sitemap?

As of Yoast SEO 20.0, the settings interface inside our plugins has received a major overhaul. Please update to the latest version of Yoast SEO if your plugin does not look like the screenshots you encounter in our Help center.

Our sitemaps are created dynamically. If you’ve recently made changes to your site, you may need to refresh the permalink structure so Yoast SEO can create the sitemap.

  1. Log in to your WordPress website.

    When you’re logged in, you will be in your ‘Dashboard’.

  2. Click on ‘Settings’.

    On the left-hand side, you will see a menu. In that menu, click on ‘Settings’.

  3. Click on ‘Permalinks’.

    The ‘Settings’ menu will expand providing you with additional options. Click on ‘Permalinks’.

  4. Click ‘Save Changes’ (without altering anything).
