Sitemap plugin for WordPress

Today I add a new category in DavidYin’s Blog.
WordPress Notes
Now I would introduce this Sitemap plugin for WordPress.
The native WP doesnot include sitemap template file.
I found this plugin
Google Sitemap Generator for WordPress
It is very easy to install and have more advance features in options.
Let me show you how to play it.
0. Download file and decompress it.
1. Upload the full directory into your wp-content/plugins directory
2. Activate it in the Plugin options
3. Edit or publish a post, or click on Rebuild Sitemap on the Option/Sitemap’s
Look at the following Sitemap Administration Interface. There are so many configurations.
sitemap-gen-271

Do we need to modify it?
No! Only if you want. Default values should be ok!
I like this plugin and recommend it to all WordPress users. This sitemap will be accepted by Google webmasters and Yahoo site explorer.
The default site-map will be something like http://www.fancaiji.cn/sitemap.xml
This is a good site of Chinese Recipes.

1and1 Hosting Beginner no Zend Optimizer but Great for WordPress

I just switch my hosting plan from MS Beginner to Linux Beginner package. The switching is OK.
Even I find so many problems, I still want to keep my hosting plan on 1and1.
One more issue is the Linux Beginner package does not support Zend Optimizer. Only when I upgrade to Business Hosting or above, I can install the Zend Optimizer through SSH. Please refer to the 1and1’s FAQ.
Some programs I download need it. I have to give up and choose another program.
I may say Great, because of easy installation of WordPress on it.
To Install a WordPress Just three steps.
1) Create a MySQL database in 1and1 control panel. Get the information of database.
2) Download the latest WordPress from its official site. Decompress it and modify the wp-config.php file based on the information got from step 1.
3) Upload all files into the server, and load http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin/install.php. Follow the instruction on pages and done.
