hi,

this is my quick and dirty hack. edit  qa-plugin/xml-sitemap/qa-xml-sitemap.php

add:

$priority = number_format($priority,0); //fixed priority 123.00 to 123

or

$priority = number_format($priority,1); //fixed priority 123.00 to 123.0

so the new function will look like this

function sitemap_output($request, $priority)
                {
                $priority = number_format($priority,0); //fixed priority 123.456
                        echo "\t<url>\n".
                                "\t\t<loc>".qa_path_html($request, null, qa_opt('site_url'))."</loc>\n".
                                "\t\t<priority>".$priority."</priority>\n".
                                "\t</url>\n";
                }
 

not sure if parsefloat/cast function can fixed this but I just want quick fix. Thanks :)
