58
+ = Can I manipulate values for priority and changefreq? =
59
+
60
+ Yes and No. Since this plugin has no options page there is no way (yet) to manually set the priority of urls in the sitemap. Since version 2.0 there is some basic automatic priority calculation (based on post age and comment activity) doing the work for you.
61
+
62
+ This feature can be used to your advantage: by resaving older posts from time to time, keeping the lastmod date fairly recent, you can ensure a priority of 70% (0.7) for those urls. And if you have comments on on those pages, the priority can even go up to 90% (0.9).
63
+
64
+ If you cannot live with these rules, edit the values $post_priority, $minpost_priority, $maxpost_priority, $page_priority, $frontpage_priority in xml-sitemap-feed/template-xml.php
65
66
= How are the values for priority and changefreq calculated? =
67
68
+ The front page has a fixed priority of 100% (1.0), pages are always 60% (0.6) and posts have a default priority of 70% (0.7) but can vary between 30% (0.3) and 90% (0.9) depending on comments and post age. the cangefreq of the frontpage is set to daily, monthly for pages and either monthly or weekly for posts depending on comments.
