    No, there is no workaround from the vB end.

    Rss

    It is a problem with the feed itself and therefore would need to be resolved by the feed provider.
    Thanks for the reply. Is there a "work around" available that you know of?

    There's no way to make the sensor work on a full phrase with spaces? hmmm... :still thinking:
    Not that I have discovered though I can't say that I spent a lot of time on it.

    You have to censor the following strings individually as the censor routine will not work with spaces:

    {<img}
    {alt=""}
    {height="1"}
    {width="1">}

    You also have to have no replacement or use a space. If you use a character such as (*) then obviously is won't look very good.

    If you allow html anywhere in the forums this is not a good solution as the "img" tag will be censored.

    Thanks!

    Same issue here too...

    It is only with google's feeds, but unfortunately that's the one I need.


    Anyone found a solution yet?

    Shouldn't there be a way to tell vbulletin to ignore that?

    Jim O,

    I never have gotten this sorted out. But to be honest I haven't really spent any time working on researching it yet. I just go in manually and edit the post. It's gotten so time consuming that I really need to head over to vbulletin.org and see if anyone has any ideas.

    It's on my list of things to do!

    Are you having the same problem?

    How do I get rid of the <img alt="" height="1" width="1"> portion of the post?

    Thanks!

    Did you ever get this sorted out?

    Yes, it must be from Google's feed. Unfortunately there are no other options to filter content. If those options don't work then custom code is required to implement an appropriate filter. You can do this with a plugin. If you have some coding ability then you can post on www.vbulletin.org for help.

    Jake, thanks for the reply. I currently have 3 rss feeds going (google news) 2 were set to yes for Convert HTML to BB Code and the other feed to No and they're all pretty much showing that <img alt="" height="1" width="1"> at the beginning of the post. I'm guessing it's coming from Google in the body of the feed?

    Btw, these are just forum posts, not Announcement posts...

    That is a useless html img tag in the feed. You can try toggling these settings for the feed:

    Convert HTML to BB Code
    Allow HTML in Announcements
    (only if it's posted as an announcement)
