    Why? Just use a text file listing all your urls or generate a proper xml one. HTML sitemaps are so 1999.

    A long ago an html sitemap was one of factor for approving in google AdSense, but now its not really needed, though i still generate html sitemap for my WordPress based site, you know old habits die hard.

    I'm using Yoast SEO. It creates the sitemap itself and you don't even have to submit it to search console.
