    I will be creating a new feed eventually ... one will be enhanced for Klip and anything else (ie the current version)

    The other will be basic for applications that just can't deal with it!

    I have made some changes to the backend, but do not have this application.
    Does it work now?

    The feed works fine with the Firefox RSS Reader, but it only shows the story titles.
    Is it be possible to replace the < content:encoded> tags with < description>? That would show short excerpts from the body of the news story as well. =)

    Yeah, I don't think the RSS reader recognizes BBcode tags.
    The image would show if the source contained HTML tags.

    I will see what I can do :eek: ;)

    Is it the vbcode issue or the path issue?

    Probably just the bb code. This is how it shows up on NewsGet:

    Code:

    Yeah, it's just the vB code. Should work fine if it's changed to a standard HTML img tag.
