I understand that XML Sitemap module is the near-standard way to create a sitemap for a Drupal site.
The Readme file isn't clear to me about how to create a sitemap.
Install as you would normally install a contributed Drupal module. Visit https://www.drupal.org/node/1897420 for further information.
Once XML Sitemap is installed and enabled, you can adjust the settings for your site's sitemap at admin/config/search/xmlsitemap. Your can view your site's sitemap at http://yoursite.com/sitemap.xml.
It is highly recommended that you have clean URLs enabled for this module.
Okay but what should I do in actuality?
What I have tried to get it work
I went to
admin/config/search/xmlsitemap/entities/settings and check-marked the entities I want to create a sitemap by and saved the page.
I then went to
/admin/config/search/xmlsitemap/rebuild and had an option Select which link types you would like to rebuild but the list container is empty (i.e. there is nothing to select).
When navigating to https://yoursite.com/sitemap.xml I get only one row with
http://default/he. This also happens after I rebuild the map.
