I have a problem with my category sitemap.

Like you can see here : http://bizpro.ch/catalog/seo_sitemap/category/ the category list doesn't respect the menu position.

Do you have any idea?

  • Are you using a module for your sitemap generation? In that case you'll need to fix that in the modules source – Sander Mangel Nov 10 '15 at 12:38
  • No,I d'ont use any module. – banu Nov 10 '15 at 12:39

You can overwrite the Mage_Catalog_Block_Seo_Sitemap_Category class from your own module (more on that here: http://inchoo.net/magento/overriding-magento-blocks-models-helpers-and-controllers/)

And set the order yourself

class [Namespace]_[Module]_Block_Catalog_Seo_Sitemap_Category extends Mage_Catalog_Block_Seo_Sitemap_Category
    protected function _prepareLayout()
        $helper = Mage::helper('catalog/category');

        // here I've edited the first argument to be `position` instead of default `name`
        $collection = $helper->getStoreCategories('position', true, false);
        return $this;

  • Thanks for your answer. I tried this solution but nothing changed. – banu Nov 10 '15 at 14:36
  • @banu are you sure your rewrite class is used? (just to be sure) – Sander Mangel Nov 10 '15 at 14:37
  • I think that it's ok but to be sur I modified directly Mage/Catalog/Seo/Sitemap/Category.php but nothing changed.(I have a backup of course) – banu Nov 10 '15 at 20:36
  • @banu I'll test this tomorrow and report back – Sander Mangel Nov 10 '15 at 21:08
  • @banu can you print the collection query? Should be var_dump((string)$collection->getSelect()); – Sander Mangel Nov 11 '15 at 10:45
