Adds sitemap.xml for the blog and for the site_template #1995
Hey! Thanks for submitting the PR.
I'm not sure adding in a sitemap is really the best use of our template. We are hoping that our template will serve as a bare-bones baseline which can help build understanding for new users (without being too complex), and provide a nice starter for devs wishing to make a new jekyll site (without putting in too much that they have to delete). I feel like this is somewhat superfluous in light of this general principle. It's a great idea – and I love the idea of sitemaps – but Google Webmaster Tools isn't used by everyone, nor would every site created via
I agree with @parkr. The site template is something that the user is meant to build upon and we don't use Google Webmaster Tools for the www.jekyllrb.com either. I think it'd be really beneficial for the rest of the Jekyll community if this was made into a tutorial or a plugin (or both) though. Thanks!
