Backslashes in Sitemap.

  • I am creating a Sitemap for my site and bbPress that goes with it using the GoDaddy Sitemap Generator within the hosting account. For some reason some of the URLs have a bunch of backslashes in them and I have to go through the entire sitemap to delete them as Google shows it to me as an error. Is there a way to resolve this issue?

    Thank you.

  • Could it be characters and/or blank spaces in the post title causing this problem?

    Thank you.



    Can you post a link to the tool you used to create the sitemap, and a link to your site map?

    I used the Sitemap Generator in my GoDaddy Hosting Account to do it. It creates the URLs with a lot of backslashes in them. I am using a free version of an XML Sitemap Generator for now but can only get 500 pages in it maximum. Do you know of any free Sitemap Generators out there that have no limit on the number of pages in Sitemap?

    Thank you.

    The link to the Sitemap is and it is made withing the GoDaddy hosting account. You will see quite a few bbPress URLs that have characters like “” or “%” in them. I made sure that I removed all characters or extra spaces in the post title. The titles have letters in upper and lower case and a space between each word, nothing else.

    Thank you.

    Oops. The Sitemap link is FYI.
