Can you tell me if the news feed that Yola uses for users blogs sends the blog images as well in the transmission?

Hey Peter!

It must cuz my Wowzio widget are pictures from my blog.

I think it depends on the blog reader you have - some do post pictures and others just the news snippet.

it would make sense that the images are a part of the over all page which is sent via RSS - if the reader reads the whole page it will include the image - i wonder if you only have a image on the blog entry what happens - testing is needed.

Again...I think it depends on the kind of blog feeder you use. I've tried some that only posts the text. When I have just my slideshow or image, then it just posts a title. Some blog feeders will also include the images (slideshow stuff will not work).

Thank you both.

There are some feeds that do and some that don't apparently.

I didn't know the answer until Littleus clarified it just then.

I have a coincidental problem with my blog index so I wasn't able to test it out . The images weren't coming through was really alI I could say.

the best situation if you wanted a photo feed would be adding your own RSS and making the actual image url into the feed content.
