no "loc" tags in affolorama - generated sitemap.xml

Hi Affilorama staff and members,
I tried crawling my very simple site with the sitemap generator premium tool.
http://www.affilorama.com/webmaster-tools/xml-sitemap-generator
It didn't find my content, i.e. there were no [*]<loc>[/*] tags in the generated output.
I tried http://www.xml-sitemaps.com and got expected (hopefully valid) results:


Thanks,
Scott

To clarify, the XML above is not from Affilorama's tool. It is from another tool.

What I got from Affilorama sitemap generator tool is as follows (copied from my reports page -- notice the lack of any data specific to my site, i.e. no "url" tags within the "urlset" element):



Thanks
Scott

Hi Scott,

Thanks for letting us know. I have forwarded the issue to one of our developers to see why the XML generator is not generating complete sitemap information for your webpage. I will update this thread once I got a word from him.

Thanks Mike.
By the way, something nice to have, while the dev team is investigating would be to put a datestamp in the comment so it's obvious not just by whom but when a given sitemap.xml file was generated, e.g:

Hi Scott,

I just got a word from our senior developer and he said that .doc and .pdf files will not appear on the XML sitemap created by our XML Sitemap Generator tool. This is because the tool only matches the following extensions 'html', 'htm', 'php', 'php3', 'cgi', 'pl', and 'asp'.
