XML Sitemap Generator includes a number of features and benefits, perfect for your online store. Using this OpenCart extension, you can efficiently:
Create an unlimited number of XML sitemaps for products, categories, manufacturers, information, and custom page links. This extension has been tested on over 1 million (1,000,000) items via both web browser and the command line
Create advanced XML sitemaps fully compliant with all Google requirements. XML Sitemap Generator is capable of splitting sitemap contents into multiple XML Sitemap files and creating XML Sitemap index files. Accordingly, no matter how many pages your store may have, your XML sitemaps will always be in line with Google’s guidelines—which require that all formats limit a single sitemap to 50MB (uncompressed) and 50,000 URLs
Keep all your sitemaps organized in a hierarchical (tree-based) structure
Create the sitemaps that include product URLs in all languages from all your stores (multi-stores) that you want to cover
Create the sitemaps that include category/subcategory URLs and the product URLs belonging to them in all languages from all your stores (multi-stores) that you want to cover
Create the sitemaps that include manufacturer URLs and the product URLs belonging to them in all languages from all your stores (multi-stores) that you want to cover
Create the sitemaps that include information URLs in all languages from all your stores (multi-stores) that you want to cover
Create the sitemaps that include any other page URLs from all your stores (multi-stores) that you want to cover
Even create sitemaps that include a large number of URLs (tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of URLs, or even more)
Set <changefreq>, <priority>, and a maximum number of URLs generated in a single sitemap
Add hreflang for language and regional URLs to product, category, manufacturer, and information sitemaps
Use XSL stylesheets to make your sitemaps and sitemap indexes human readable
Set a custom width and height to the images in XML sitemap files
Automate the process of generating sitemaps with your command-line interface (CLI) and a cron job/Windows Task Scheduler job. Please note that this extension provides only PHP methods to be executed via CLI. At the time of writing (December 2017), since OpenCart lacks a feature of executing PHP code through the command line by default, it is required to add CLI support to your OpenCart in order to run the PHP methods provided by the XML Sitemap Generator extension. If you don't have any CLI functionality added to your OpenCart yet, we recommend that you use iSenseLabs' oc_cli extension (OpenCart 2.2.x-2.3.x compatible, as of December 2017) available at https://github.com/iSenseLabs/oc_cli. Also the OpenCart 3.0.x compatible version is available at https://github.com/cuispi/oc_cli_mod
Ensure data consistency and accuracy using file locking, allowing only one process to generate XML sitemaps in a specific time
Optionally change the default location of the sitemap folder (catalog/view/sitemap) to any location you like within your OpenCart installation
Create your own admin language files by copying and translating the original ones. Defaults to English (en-gb/english)
This guide covers detailed system requirements for a XML Sitemap Generator installation.
PHP 5.3.x or later
MySQL 5.1.x or later
Note that if you want to create a large number of URLs (tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of URLs, or even more) in a single process, the following must be taken into consideration:
The max_execution_time in your php.ini must be changeable through the ini_set() function.
In PHP 5.3.x, the Safe Mode must be turned off.
The max_execution_time becomes effective only when running a script from a web server (e.g., via web browser). When running the script from the command line or a cron job, the default setting is 0 (unlimited).
Your web server can have other timeout configurations that may also interrupt PHP execution. Apache has a Timeout directive and IIS has a CGI timeout function. Both default to 300 seconds. See your web server documentation or ask your web hosting company for specific details.

What customers say about XML Sitemap Generator by Cuispi - Create advanced XML sitemaps
Has created over 10000 urls for about 100 categories. Some of them have valid category urls and the rest are simple product urls. The developer suggested to use the canonical rel to overcome this issue... He did not explain why the module creates category sitemaps with product urls... And he also sent me a patch of code to add to his extension's php file!
This extension works perfectly and the support team is great.
Thank you very much for making this extension available and for the excellent technical support.
