Clarifying Information
Error Message
Defect/Enhancement Number
The content type has been excluded globally from the Sitemap, but there is a configuration entry for a particular site in which the content type is explicitly included.
1. Go to Administration > Settings > Advanced > Sitemap
2. Expand SiteConfigs
3. Select  { desired site } > Excluded Types
4. Check if the type is present in the excluded types and if so, ensure that the Include Explicitly Type setting is not enabled.
If the content type is present in the excluded content types and the setting is enabled, disable the setting or remove the record for that content type from the site-specific settings
