    Sitefinity correctly parses the references for images inserted through the Image Manager to their proper URL, but this URL is relative (not absolute).  When the feed is aggregated through an external tool, such as FeedBurner, the images no longer show since they are now relative to the wrong domain.

    The W3 RSS Validator service shows this as a feed error:

    line 1, column 4131: description should not contain relative URL references: /images/afghanistan-conflict-monitor-images/2011/02/24/US-flag.jpg?Status=Master (11 occurrences) [help]

    Hi Anthony / Tracey,

    Thank you for reporting this problem. The URL of the image within the RSS feed should be absolute. I'm logging a bug with ID 109747.


    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
