What is the point in a siteamp plugin that completely ignores the custom order set in the pages editor and simply arranges posts in alphabetical order? There is no logic at all to the way that this plugin arranges pages and posts. I had it installed for less than two minutes before I had to uninstall it in utter dismay. Please do better.

I've always wanted to have a site map page on my site but never got around to it. I was using another XML sitemap plugin but recently I checked the XML sitemap and was really upset since site maps are easy to find and pretty much accessible to everyone. What bothered me was when I opened the main site map and looked at the author sitemap it used the username (the one you log in to WordPress with) not the display name. That's halfway to getting into my site. My usernames look like long passwords to prevent that and there it was where anyone could see it. I really like that Sitemap by click5 seems to generate a random string of characters for that. Setting up the HTML sitemap was easy. Then all you have to do is create a page and put in the shortcode. Very user friendly. Thank you.

This does everything we want, including customization of the page layout, columns, omissions, exclusions, etc. I can honestly say this is our new go-to for an .html sitemap... I'm knocking off a star only because we have to change the silly permalink and remove /click5_
