  • RSS Feedmanager & Images

    I have added a news.google.com news feed, and some of the RSS feeds have images in them. In the thread the image shows up as a broken image (red x)...

    How do I get these images to show up?

    Thanks -

    Check the Body Template of the feed in your Admin CP. Make sure you are using correct image locations.

      This is what it says in my admin panel

      {rss:description}

      The images come from the feed source on Google news... Any other ideas?

      Thanks in advance...

          Yeah, looking for a solution as well with the same feed. They use relative urls instead of absolute. Quite annoying.

            To try to stay on topic, I have a problem with this as well. I use Yahoo News and they do the same thing as Google with an img tag (and other HTML) in the description (one for a photo, others for tracking). I have marked the option for vBulletin to not convert HTML into BBCode and I allow HTML on the forum. I still get about half(maybe more) of the images not showing up (alt text in it's place). Some do though. When I click to edit the post, the image shows up fine, but after saving the edit, it switches it to BBCode and I'm left with a URL for an image.

              This is the problem.. relative instead of absolute. question is how to you have the feed make the connection between

              relative

              /images/blah.jpg
              and
              http:url.net/images/blah.jpg
