Currents 1.5.1 for Android no longer displays images in posts of a specific RSS feed Paolo Amoroso 6/28/12 12:15 PM
I've just updated Currents for Android to version 1.5.1 (build 121741107) on my Nexus S running Android 4.0.4. In an edition I created, Currents no longer displays images in the posts of a specific RSS feed. Before the update images were shown correctly in posts. Here is the edition:


The section where post images are no longer displayed is called AstronautiNEWS. It is based on this RSS feed:


which comes from this site:


Some of the images from old posts are shown in Producer build 20120619.20, but not the latest ones.

By the way, even before the Currents update, image thumbnails were not displayed in the section summary. But this may be due to the RSS feed.

Well, the good news is that it isn't the new 1.5.1 android app that's breaking things, its the parsing of your feed (which happens on our backend servers).

It seems like the first 2 articles in that section (Shenzhou..., L'ESA...) are missing pictures, but then the following articles are all okay. My guess is that when our server tried to fetch the images from your feed we encountered some kind of temporary error and couldn't save the images to our own backend. My test feed pulled them in correctly, so I would suggest the following:

1. delete the offending articles from your feed
2. under 'content source' in the edit section page, click 'refresh now'
3. the feed should refresh and the articles should come back, freshly parsed and saved by our server


Also, the reason those images don't show in the section summary is because the images aren't big enough. Pictures must be larger than 120x120 to be included in the section summary. That section's images are just shy at 205x110.

Hope that helps!

This did the trick. Thanks, also for the reminder about minimum image size in RSS feeds.
