    If you submit default robots.txt given by socialengine script in Google webmaster tool, the robots.txt tester shows error for sitemap:  /index.php/sitemap?format=xml&rewrite=1

    It shows-  'Invalid sitemap URL detected; syntax not understood'

    Instead I wrote full url 'sitemap:

    And it worked.

    Will it work for other search engines also ?

    You would need to test and see. I am not sure what's up with Google.
