Thanks for putting on GitHub Issues.
I’ll think on how to address it. We can either try to modify the calls that each SEO plugin makes (more work, less reliable, as they don’t share same concept of “deploy” as our plugins) or provide solutions based on our existing post-deployment hooks (preferred, more likely).
We have already in one of the plugins, an option in UI to set a post-deployment webhook URL and choose the method GET, or POST, for which this direction from Google would work:
Use the ping tool. Send a GET request in your browser or the command line to this address, specifying the full URL of the sitemap. Be sure that the sitemap file is accessible:
For a plugin without that option, we can do a little custom script in
functions.php or as an extra plugin, which will call that URL. If using via WP-CLI in a script, that can be a simple
I’ll link back here from the GH Issue and update when there’s a more concrete solution, but you can try out some of the ideas above for now.
