Rss Feed Image cannot display bluesmoke msg:1542962 4:02 pm on Aug 8, 2004 (gmt 0) I don't know if anyone can help but I am trying to include a graphic at the top of my rss feed such as the BBC do. I have tried various types of links but to no avail, the last one used was this.
<title>Internet ¦ Technology ¦ Virus News from ********</title>
<link>http://*********/news</link> <description>Latest internet, technology and virus news updated daily</description> <url>http://******/images/rssfeed_logo.gif 117x24</url> <link>http://*******/news</link> <language>en-gb</language>
Where it say's <url>blah blah</url>
I tried substituting it with <image></image> still no good. Any advice would be appreciated. I have removed the urls in case they are not allowed on this forum

Well, the BBC's RSS 0.91 feed has this code just above the first item:
<title>BBC News</title> <url>http://news.bbc.co.uk/nol/shared/img/bbc_news_120x60.gif</url> <link>http://news.bbc.co.uk</link> </image>
So that should work.
Here's a useful online tool for validating your feed when it's ready: [

To Longhaired Genius, many thanks I have sorted it out. I had been reading about rss feeds for about a week and I'm sure I read somewhere that rss 2.0 was more compatable over rss 0.91 for including images. Anyway thanks again it's up and running now.
