Feature: #84525 - XML Sitemap

See Issue #84525

Description

It is now possible to generate XML sitemaps for SEO purposes without using 3rd-party plugins. When enabled, this new feature will create a sitemap index with one or more sitemaps in it. Out-of-the-box it will have one sitemap containing all the pages of the current site and language. Per site and per language you have the possibility to render a different sitemap.

Installation

The XML sitemap is disabled by default. You can easily enable it by installing the system extension “seo” and including the static TypoScript template “XML Sitemap (seo)”. It is also mandatory to have a site configuration for your rootpage(s).

How to access your XML sitemap

Until it is possible to have a default route with the new URL handling mechanism, you can access the sitemaps by calling https://yourdomain.com/?type=1533906435 in your browser. You will first see the sitemap index. By default you will see one sitemap in the index. This is the sitemap for pages.

If you have multiple siteroots or multiple languages with different domains or language prefixes, you can just go to the domain that handles the siteroot / language. The sitemap will be based on the settings for that domain.

XmlSitemapDataProviders

The rendering of sitemaps is based on XmlSitemapDataProviders. EXT:seo extension ships with two XmlSitemapDataProviders. The first one is the PagesXmlSitemapDataProvider. This will generate a sitemap of pages based on the siteroot that is detected. You can configure if you have additional conditions for the selection of pages. You also have the possibility to exclude certain doktypes.

plugin.tx_seo {
   config {
      xmlSitemap {
         sitemaps {
            pages {
               config {
                  excludedDoktypes = 137, 138
                  additionalWhere = no_index = 0 AND canonical_link = ''
               }
            }
         }
      }
   }
}

If you also have an extension installed and want a sitemap of those records, you can use the RecordsXmlSitemapDataProvider. You can add for example a sitemap for news records:

plugin.tx_seo {
   config {
      xmlSitemap {
         sitemaps {
            <unique key> {
               provider = TYPO3\CMS\Seo\XmlSitemap\RecordsXmlSitemapDataProvider
               config {
                  table = news_table
                  sortField = sorting
                  lastModifiedField = tstamp
                  additionalWhere = no_index = 0 AND canonical_link = ''
                  pid = <page id('s) containing news records>
                  url {
                     pageId = <your detail page id>
                     fieldToParameterMap {
                        uid = tx_extension_pi1[news]
                     }
                     additionalGetParameters {
                        tx_extension_pi1.controller = News
                        tx_extension_pi1.action = detail
                     }
                     useCacheHash = 1
                  }
               }
            }
         }
      }
   }
}

You can add several sitemaps and those will be added to the sitemap index automatically.
