  6. Turn on the sitemap types you want to generate.

    • Generate Sitemap refers to the standard sitemap, which lists all of the web pages on a site for any content type.
    • The standard and video sitemaps are generated once every 24 hours.
  7. If you enabled generation of the news sitemap, in the Cron Expression field, enter a cron expression.

  8. If necessary, set a sitemap default URL. If blank, Brightspot uses the default site URL set on the Main tab of the Global site. Override the default value if your architecture requires a different sitemap URL.

  9. Click Save.

Brightspot loads the applicable sitemap background task.
