Hello, I get the following error:

The following file is blocking your XML sitemaps from working properly. Either delete it (this can be done with the "Fix it" button) or disable Yoast SEO XML sitemaps.

With an updated version of YOAST 7.0.3 .., the entries per page option is not working at all .. any way around it?

$wpseo_options = WPSEO_Options::get_all();
$sitemap_entries_per_page = $wpseo_options['entries-per-page'];

Line 161 will cause a deprecation warning: Notice: WPSEO_Sitemaps::sitemap_url is deprecated since version WPSEO 3.2! Use WPSEO_Sitemaps_Renderer::sitemap_url() instead.

To fix this, change line 161 to:

$output .= $wpseo_sitemaps->renderer->sitemap_url( $url );

thanks for that @haroldkyle

Thanks for this post and the comments. I have made an adjusted version of this implementation that allows you to add yoast sitemaps with custom Pods / Pods Pages.

In the filter, you want to "add" instead of overwriting right now. Otherwise if you do this multiple times, you'll just have the latest sitemap function that ran. So you'd want these changes to add multiple sitemap indexes :

-function ex_add_sitemap_custom_items(){
+function ex_add_sitemap_custom_items($smp){
	global $wpseo_sitemaps;
	$date = $wpseo_sitemaps->get_last_modified('CUSTOM_POST_TYPE');

-	$smp ='';

    	$smp .= '<sitemap>' . "\n";

Why is ex_generate_origin_combo_sitemap() assigned to two different hooks AND register_sitemap()? Shouldn't register_sitemap() alone suffice? Is this a backwards compatibility thing?

Thanks for the snippet. Modifying it a bit to adapt it to the latest Yoast version works like a charm. :)

Yes - only register_sitemap() is required. Lines like add_action( "wpseo_do_sitemap_CUSTOM_KEY", '....'); are redundant as register_sitemap() already adds these actions, see line 165 of the Yoast source class.

Just added two new gists as a more comprehensive examples. All in one file, including writing sitemap <url> tags with images. Don't have all the extra "practitioner" cruft.

Sitemap without a data source specified:

I am getting 404 - page not found in my staging environment after generating custom sitemap using this code. Please suggest a fix for this. I have already saved permalink, cleared all kind of cache but still not working.
