Has anyone noticed that the Gawker sites' RSS feeds are not showing the header images or videos in TT-RSS? Everything was working fine a day ago and starting yesterday they weren't showing up anymore. Just curious if anyone else is having the same problem and if there might be a fix. When I look at the RSS feed URL in my browser it doesn't show pictures either, but when I try other readers, such as Feedly, it does show the pics and vids. I contacted the Gawker support and they said it should be working and that nothing should have changed with their feed, but they would look into it. **Not holding my breath** Anyway, thanks for the great product and any help would be appreciated.

Do you have an Firefox or Chrome addon that changes text links into clickable links? That was the problem for myself and another user before.
I just tried it in Internet Explorer, where I know I have no plugins installed, and I'm getting the same thing.
Also, other RSS feeds are showing images properly.
Noticed the same thing. I think they've just updated their feed settings. Hopefully it's not permanent but I'm not holding my breath either.
OK. Good to know it's not just me.
I can confirm this is happening for me too (firefox 35.0.1 , no plugin interference) ... Maybe an intentional move from gawker ? Wouldn't surprise me ...
Just noticed something a little odd. Tried a "vip" rss url I found (http://deadspin.com/rss/vip) and it displays full images and everything when it is previewed using this Chrome extension. But as soon as I subscribe to it the feed displays the same "new" behavior as the other feed URLs. Still messing with it.
Hmm, adding /rss/vip to any of the Gawker websites domains now gives me working feeds. I hadn't notice problems before because I usually middle click to open in a new tab, then mark any I'm not going to read as read.
Received a reply from Gawker:
We’re currently working on a fix to the RSS feed issue in regards to images – thanks for the heads-up. Please feel free to let us know if anything else comes up.

Has there been a change to the RSS feeds provided by the various Gawker sites? We used to receive the header image for each post along with the leading paragraph, but now all we get is plain text. Jalopnik and Deadspin for example.
Thanks in advance for the assistance!
Same thing here, but only if I edit the feed manually. If I try to subscribe to the same url via a browser tab it somehow goes back to the undesired format. Good times
