Zola will look for a
sitemap.xml file in the
templates directory or
use the built-in one.
If your site has more than 30 000 pages, it will automatically split the links into multiple sitemaps, as recommended by Google:
All formats limit a single sitemap to 50MB (uncompressed) and 50,000 URLs. If you have a larger file or more URLs, you will have to break your list into multiple sitemaps. You can optionally create a sitemap index file (a file that points to a list of sitemaps) and submit that single index file to Google.
In such a case, Zola will use a template called
split_sitemap_index.xml to render the index sitemap.
sitemap.xml template gets a single variable:
entries: all pages of the site, as a list of
SitemapEntry has the following fields:
permalink: String; updated: String?; extra: Hashmap<String, Any>?;
split_sitemap_index.xml also gets a single variable:
sitemaps: a list of permalinks to the sitemaps
