      Well I did word that wrong. Here is a image showing what will happen.



      This will happen to every category. It does cause errors. I had emails about this from users. I removed the dates and put back the 0 as it was before, All my emails stopped. No more complaints. Please provide a proper fix for us please. I been begging for over a week with no luck what so ever. I think its pretty sad you want us to hack our mysql to fix your bug. These have always been set to 0. The vBSEO site map doesn't do this. Your old sitemap code didn't do this. Something changed and to ask us to hack our mysql is just crazy and causes other problems.

      Please provide a proper fix.

      I feel adding a fake date to the sitemap only would be a better fix.

      Some cheap fix like:
      Code:
      if (datestamp == 0) {
      datestamp = 1284746403;
      }
      So that only the sitemap will have this datestamp.

      My statements are based on the forums not the CMS as I do not and will not use it.
      If I wanted faulty software I would code it my self. When I pay I expect to get what is advertised. I do not feel I got what I paid for.
      In an honest opinion I feel I paid for vB 5.0 beta 7

        I can't believe something like this hasn't been fixed yet?
        After upgrading from 3.8 to 4.0x I'm starting to feel like the whole 4.0x series is more of a beta than the final package. yet we had to pay full price for it.

        So many little quirks about this software and they don't seem to want to fix them?
        Why does the FB connect button appear over the login field in IE? I saw it was posted on the forum, but nothing from VB about how to fix it.

        I posted a thread a couple months ago, about the facebook 'Like' button not holding the number of 'likes' and always defaulting back to 'be the first to'

        The only response I got from VB was 'must be your PC, it works fine'

        Come back a few months later, and see several new threads about the same topic. Not one response from the VB staff on any of the threads.
        It doesn't even work on this forum.

          It has been fixed, in 4.0.8.

                Does anyone know the fix for this, before 4.08 comes out? Is affecting the forum sitemap crawls with Google.

                  Anyone know the fix? I don't care what anyone says, it's affecting the sitemap generation.

                    in includes/class_sitemap.php search for

                    Code:
                    $this->content .= $this->url_block(
                    Just above that add this code:
                    Code:
                                if ($forum['lastpost'] == 0)
                                {
                                    $forum['lastpost'] = '1284746403';
                                }
                    It should be around line number 1162. Remember this is only a temp fix. What this does is any forum that has 0 post will put a fake last post time in the sitemap to fool google sitemap standards.
                    This only alters the vbulletin_sitemap_forum_1.xml.gz not any sql.

                    I am thinking google is making changes to the way their system works.
                    Because I just did my fix two days ago but it seems since the 20th I have been receiving this new error. Any of these ’ ` ® , - £ in a thread title also causes this error, An invalid character was found in text content.

                          To fix this error do the following,

                          in includes/class_sitemap.php
                          find the second UTF-8
                          Replace with iso-8859-1

                              Is this a confirmed fix?

                                Depends which error you are fixing.

                                Are you getting the wrong date error or An invalid character was found in text content.
