Grav Sitemap Plugin

Sitemap is a Grav Plugin that generates a map of your pages in XML format that is easily understandable and indexable by Search engines.


Installing the Sitemap plugin can be done in one of two ways. Our GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method enables you to quickly and easily install the plugin with a simple terminal command, while the manual method enables you to do so via a zip file.

GPM Installation (Preferred)

The simplest way to install this plugin is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM) through your system's Terminal (also called the command line). From the root of your Grav install type:

bin/gpm install sitemap

This will install the Sitemap plugin into your /user/plugins directory within Grav. Its files can be found under /your/site/grav/user/plugins/sitemap.

Manual Installation

To install this plugin, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under /your/site/grav/user/plugins. Then, rename the folder to sitemap. You can find these files either on GitHub or via

You should now have all the plugin files under


NOTE: This plugin is a modular component for Grav which requires Grav, the Error and Problems plugins, and a theme to be installed in order to operate.


The sitemap plugin works out of the box. You can just go directly to and you will see the generated XML.

Config Defaults

enabled: true
route: '/sitemap'
  - /blog/blog-post-to-ignore
  - /ignore-this-route
  - /ignore-children-of-this-route/.*

You can ignore your own pages by providing a list of routes to ignore. You can also use a page's Frontmatter to signal that the sitemap should ignore it:

    ignore: true

Only allow access to the .xml file

If you want your sitemap to only be accessible via sitemap.xml for example, set the route to /sitemap and add this to your .htaccess file:

Redirect 301 /sitemap /sitemap.xml

Manually add pages to the sitemap

You can manually add URLs to the sitemap using the Admin settings, or by adding entries to your sitemap.yaml with this format:

    location: /not-a-grav-url
    lastmod: '2017-04-06'
