If a site configuration only has a simple base entry like this:

base: /

A generated sitemap.xml only contains relative links, which prevent search engines to properly index all pages.
Additional crawler extensions like EXT:sitecrawler, who uses a valid sitemap (with absolute links) for a cache warm up, will fail.

To make developers life a bit sunnier, a hint comment inside the generated sitemap xml would be great:

"Add a FQDN to side configuration to get absolute paths"

A hint inside the site configuration modul, that the base setting also affects the sitemap generation, whould be usefull as well.

I donĀ“t get why it behaves like this. We use different applicationContext based on domain, which we define using .htaccess:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^project\.local$
RewriteRule .? - [E=TYPO3_CONTEXT:Development]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^staging\.project\.com$
RewriteRule .? - [E=TYPO3_CONTEXT:Production/Staging]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^project\.com$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.project\.com$
RewriteRule .? - [E=TYPO3_CONTEXT:Production]

We do this, because we need the context in htaccess for other things anyway. So additionally defining the different bases in site configuration would be pretty redundant.

Is there any way to solve this with only having base: / in site configuration?
