    I have been developing a website that requires an RSS feed grabber to display headlines on the from page from WordPress posts. All has been well, but when I came into the office this morning and loaded up the page every blog entry displayed through RSS was showing a hidden image tag following the copy. This issue is apparent in IE, Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

    Ex.

    Test

    Test test. <img alt=”” border=”0″ src=”http://stats.wordpress.com/b.gif?host=niagaraknights.wordpress.com&blog=5395230&post=27&subd=niagaraknights&ref=&feed=1″ />

    This image tag doesn’t reside in my code, nor does it reside in the test blog post. I deleted and rewrote several test posts to ensure that there was no hidden image, gave the JS a quick kick to refresh the feed and the <img> tag continued to show up. I found another site experiencing the same problem: http://daily.gigaom.com/.

    Anyone have a clue?

    From the URL, it is part of the wordpress.COM stats. It could be with the big code push and resulting bug fixes of the past 4 days that it is simply a temporary glitch. I just visited the feed for niagaraknights.wordpress.com and do not see any of that code in the posts listed.

    You’re welcome and as I said, I don’t see the code in there – not even when I view the source code for the RSS feed.

    @thesacredpath. Hi I’ve just checked your RSS feed and you have the same issue. The reason its not appearing I think is that you have put some returns in the text box, but its there.

    Your blog is not a WordPress.com blog, so we won’t be able to help you with that. If you require help with your WP stats plugin, please contact staff directly.
