Never came across a plugin that adds a file on root and modifies index.php -- this is what malware does. NOT RECOMMENDED!

Yoast SEO would not create a sitemap for my site. Kept giving me an error message, saying XML parsing error. I read some instructions from Yoast saying to check for whitespace at the end of the functions.php file and to remove it if it was present. It was, I removed it, but no change. I installed this plugin, clicked the button, the problem is fixed. As far as users who rated 1 star: the plugin did not fix their specific problem but that does not justify a low rating. They have a problem this doesn't fix, that's all. Keep digging.

Didn't work. Same error after click on fix it. Please, wordpress users, IF THIS DOES NOT WORK DON'T GIVE 5 STARS. You make people lose their time and eventually break their installation. Thanks.
