Google sitemap Unsupported file format on both my wordpress.com

  1. Hi, I am having trouble on both my wordpress.com sites. I have never had a problem before. Why do I keep getting Unsupported file format on site map. I read what they say about spaces and .9..etc I have no idea what that means or where that would be. They do not walk you through it like a 4 year old which is what I need. Where would be space"Exactly where on what page"
    I am getting tired of this whole sitemap thing error
