Right. I was assuming that the default build would include these.
It used to include the kitchen sink.

Excellent, many thanks for tracking this down. At least now the
sitemap.xmap doesn't give an error message.

I'll try these as and when.

Knowing where to look is always good :-)

According to an earlier answer, I think the default build is supposed
include authentication. Perhaps there's something missing from it. I
haven't added or subtracted anything, so the default build would have
been as distributed. Perhaps that's what's out of sync.

Anyway, no errors means I can try the next step :-)
