UBB.Sitemaps is a script that we created due to some reported search engine "discovery" issues with the way that URLs where initially written in the UBB.threads product that some users where reporting. Not to mention that a lot of users had moved from previous or competing products and wanted to see their URLs immediately discovered in the Google, Bing, Yahoo, or other search engine(s).
This script aids in the "discovery" portion of search engine crawling; instead of waiting and hoping that your URL's get crawled, an XML Sitemap alerts Google (or any crawlers which allow sitemaps) as to what URLs exist on your forums, so they know what to crawl based on what you tell them.
Most search engines will take your feed once a week or so and run it through to determine new URLs, on a Google Webmaster Tools account, you can browse exactly how many URLs have been included, as well as when the last time they have hit your site.
Please note however, that Google will still crawl your site and try to perform its own discovery, so please do not use a robots.txt entry to block it (as it must be able to crawl the content provided in the sitemap in order to populate your entries).
The configuration options allow you to specify which type of sitemap you wish to use and whether you wish to plugin threaded or flat view. The sitemap type and view type can both be set either by hard coding the appropriate variable or via a URL string.
