WP e-Commerce XML Sitemap WordPress Plugin

I was just about to update an old plugin I created to create an XML site map for products in WP e-Commerce…

The plugin worked well with WP e-Commerce 3.7.5 (the latest version) apart from a few minor issues. I got in touch with Lee and suggested a few tweaks/fixes – he has just released an updated version:

You can download the latest version here…
