(1) When I switch on auto generate sitemap in site setting, and publish. Everything is fine, I can see it in domain.com/sitemap.xml. However, when I toggle the auto generate back off, and hit publish. I can still see the sitemap at domain.com/sitemap.xml (the same one). If this is intentional, then it is certainly confusing because I left the custom sitemap section blank, so I would actually expect it to be deleted.
(2) I think this is a bug, but not sure.
Under robots.txt, I put in:
To disallow a part (everything in template) to be crawled. I've tried this both with and without the *. When I auto gen the sitemap, I still see all the pages in /template in sitemap.xml. I'm not fluent in how this works. Maybe this is correct and sitemap still generates the pages, but robots won't crawl /template. I figured I will report this anyway, as it is somewhat related to (1) above.
