    You always need to disclose the version of OR you are using when you create a new support thread here.

    I just thought about that -- my apologies. Version 3.0.12.

    That's not an OR or PHP generated error, I think it is coming from your browser. Are you sure you are logged-in as the site admin when you try to run this?

    Are there sitemap files (sitemapXX.xml) being generated in your OR site root? When this runs it doesn't output anything to the browser at all, it just does its thing.

    I see this error when I visit www.30ashacks.com/sitemap1.xml on Chrome and Firefox and wasn't sure if this something to do with OR or what. I even submitted it to Google Webmasters and it gives me tons of errors.

    That's not what you stated in your first post. You said the error was caused when you create your sitemap, not when trying to view it in a browser. The link you provided this time also shows a completely different error than you reported.

    You need to submit the correct sitemap file, there will be a "root" sitemap file named sitemap.xml and that is what you share with search engines. The numbered ones will be automatically included. If you want to know how this works and what the rules are, visit: http://www.sitemaps.org/

    Your problem here is that the title of one of your listings contains an ampersand, where you should be using '&' you have used '&' which is not valid. It's even pointing directly to the ampersand when you view the error.

    Don't you think Open-Realty should be converting "&" to "&"?

    Certainly, but the OP did not disclose how the listing was created and that's going to be important. If it was imported by an add-on, the add-on may not be properly sorting this out.

    Sorry for keeping on "off-topic". I agree with you.
    That's an Open-Realty fault once "&" is not being converted. Not only on Listing Title, but also at {url_searchresults_class_#}, {url_search_class_#}, {page_link_#} and {blog_link_#} tags. The RSS pages do not validate and throws errors.
    Back on topic, the same for the sitemap1.xml.
    All... already reported to Ryan.
