Sitemap-pages.xml {slug}

Ghost 5.2.3
Ghost-CLI 1.21.0
local install to test before upgrade existing site on 4.x to 5.x.

The sitemap for pages is showing URLS with “{slug}” in the title, not the slug but the string “{slug}”. I’ve attached a screenshot.

Here is the process:

  • local install with current 5.2.x of Ghost
  • Import content and routes.yaml from current site (Ghost 4.x) for testing

Sitemap for pages is in the screenshot. Keep in mind the very same routes.yaml works fine on the live site:

It is clearly not picking up the collections urls correctly. Here is an example of a collection in my routes.yaml:

    permalink: /tutorials/{slug}/
    filter: primary_tag:tutorials

To be clear, the routing works fine. Going to http://localhost:2370/**tutorials**/some-post-with-primary_tag/ works. So does http://localhost:2370/**tutorials**/. It is just the sitemap for these collection urls that is not working.

The sitemap for specific posts in the collection works fine too.

I’ve tried the following:

  • Clear cache (ghost buster)
  • ghost restart
  • Upload clean version of routes.yaml
  • Open in private browser
  • Clear browser cache

Thanks for any help!

Did you upgrade from the latest release in the 4.x series or an older one?

This looks like a bug either in the migration tool or the new release.

You could try creating a new collection from scratch in the new release and put a post in it and see if you get the same behavior as when you do with imported content.
