Note that ox-publish is very basic. There is a number of third-party
packages that simplify blog export. For example, ox-hugo. See

It must be a function. If someone comes up with a patch for this, it
would also be welcome.

Sitemap is exported just as an ordinary .org file within the project.
So, you can, for example, modify sitemap generator function to add
postamble manually and set #+OPTIONS: html-postamble:nil on top to
disable default postamble.

This indicates an issue with your Org installation. Consider
re-installing Org mode and making sure that you do not put
(require 'org) before setting `load-path'. This issue appear in several
scenarios, depending on the kind of installation method you are using.
