It is important to create a sitemap to give search engines, such as Google, a sort of guide to index your phpBB forum. To create a sitemap for your phpBB dashboard you will need the extension. Download the phpBB3 SEO Sitemap extension developed by Shredder:

phpbb3-ext-seo-sitemap-1.1.3.zip

Upload it to the /ext folder at the root of your phpBB installation and export it. Then enable it from ACP > Customise > Extensions Manager.

Find SEO Sitemap Settings in the Extensions tab to adjust the settings. There are two types of settings I recommend you make here. Make the cache ‘0’ and make Changefreq all ‘always’. Submit.

Because forums and social media are always ready for new content due to their structure. I think new pages should instantly appear on the sitemap.

In some of the tests I did, I was stressed about specifying a time and when the content would appear on the sitemap as a result. Always checking topics and forums makes them more quickly recognised in new posts. My opinion.

As it is written on the settings page, the XML Sitemap address will be as follows:

https://phpbbgroup.com/sitemap.xml

So we have created a sitemap for your phpBB forum in a few simple step.
