  • I recently installed WordPress 2.5 on my server and set up a blog using the verylpaintext template.

    It’s working, but people have been saying the feed summaries in Google Reader show up strange. It also looks weird if you try to see the posts by Category or Tag. All the images are showing up as code, but they are fine in the main post.

    A summary looks something like this:

    (Title) Forests
    (Post time stamp) Friday, April 11, 2008

    (Text in post) I dunno. I felt like drawing something forest-related.

    (This is supposed to be the image)
    addthis_url = ‘’;
    addthis_title = ‘Forests’;
    addthis_pub = ”;

    Can I do something to prevent the images from showing up in the summaries?

    I’m running these plugins on my blog, if it makes any difference:
    Addthis social bookmarking widget
    All in One SEO pack

    The template is veryplaintext from

  • I don’t think the theme has anything to do with the feed, could be the plugins though, what’s your feed’s URL?

    To be honest I don’t use feeds myself, so I don’t know what my reader is talking about.

    My blog is at

    There are two problems:
    #1: the addthis plugin (not sure which one you are using, but it sucks for sure) and … at the same time
    #2: you only show the summary of the post

    Fixing either one (or both) should fix the problem. (disable the plugin or enable full post for feed)

    I like your drawings btw. 🙂

    Thanks. I just tried disabling the plugin, and at the very least it cleared up the funny code in the categories. I changed it from showing summary to full post too although I don’t see a difference.

    I’ll have to find another plugin or something for the social bookmarks.

    Thanks for your help, glad you like the drawings too 🙂
