    Hey,
    Im wondering if it is possible to embed a direct link to the attachement of a post in it’s own tag rather than having it embedded into the body of a post.
    Right now my body tag looks something like this:
    —–

    POST TEXT<img alt=”picture.jpg” id=”image26″ src=”picture.thumbnail.jpg” />

    —–
    *what i want it to look like is:
    —–

    POST TEXT

    <postattachment>
    picture.jpg
    </postattachment>

    —–
    I guess Im wondering if there is any variable that link directly to the attachment of a post.

    Thanks,

    I guess I fail to see the point of doing this sort of thing. You could do it, but you couldn’t make it work in RSS readers.

    Most RSS readers understand HTML. Stick to standards, that’s my advice.

    Hey,
    I know that RSS readers will still be able to pick up the body, title and link to the article. The thing is, I’ve created an RSS reader for flash and I’m converting it so that videos, pictures, and audio get played in one player rather than loading 10 or more media players on one page.

    This is very close to what I’m looking for:

    I want to do the same thing but with every attachment type

    ..and in the rss2 loop

    I’ll keep working at it…

    Is there a reason why a function can be called in “the loop” but it doesn’t work when it is called in an rss tag?

    No. The RSS code does have the loop in it.

    I found another way around. In flash I wrote a script that finds and extracts the info I want from the tag.
    Thanks anyway

    Ok, glad to hear you got something working.. can the status be changed to [Resolved] now, or..?
