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:

<image>
<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: [feeds.archive.org...]

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.
