My XML sitemap returns a blank page

Some solutions if you can’t see your XML sitemap or you get this error from Google Search Console “Your file appears to be an HTML page”:

  • exclude XML and XSL files from your caching plugins
  • exclude XML and XSL files from Weglot plugin
  • exclude XML and XSL files from your CDN (Content Delivery Network)
  • update Really Simple SSL plugin to the latest release
  • enable define( ‘WP_DEBUG’, true ); in your wp-config.php to see the error
