Joomla Sitemap Generator Troubleshooing

From feedback received by customers of A1 Sitemap Generator and its sibling tools, it appears that some Joomla installations utilize a crawler throttling system. This gives 403 Access Forbidden when crawling the Joomla website.

Here is a list of modules and settings to configure in Joomla:
  • Sh404SEF plugin (for SEO): Disable anti-flood configuration.

There are also various Joomla plugins that create duplicate URLs.


Sitemap Generator Program Settings for Joomla


  • Scan website | Crawler engine: Set max simultaneous connections/threads to one.
  • Scan website | Crawler engine: Set number of miliseconds "crawl delay" between connections to 2000.
  • Scan website | Crawler settings: Check Consider non-redirected with-slash and non-slash URLs as "duplicates".
  • Scan website | Crawler settings: Check Consider non-redirected index file names as "duplicates".

More settings to configure if you still have problems after doing above:
  • Set General options | Internet crawler | User agent ID to Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.google.com/bot.html).
  • Check full list of configuration solutions at our help page for problematic websites.

You may also want to add the following exclusions to analysis filters and output filters:
  • ::(^|/)itemlist/tag/
  • ::(^|/)item/[0-9]+
