    Podcasting – how to get rid of strange code in “show description”

    I have created a podcast. My theme is Kubrick (no bells and whistles).
    Each post consists only of a title and a link to the mp3 file (on a different server; not wordpress hosted).
    I subscribed to the podcast through iTunes, pasting the link into the ‘subscribe to podcast’ menu option.
    When I look at the episodes, the show description contains this code:
    <img alt="" border="0" src="" />

    I cannot see this code in my posts (even in the HTML view).
    Any idea how I can stop that code showing up for subscribers?

    I had the same issue, and this is how I fixed it.

    1. I went to Settings > Reading in my wordpress dashboard
    2. I unticked  all  the options in “For each article in an enhanced feed, show”  (I don’t know if that helped, but I did it)
    3. “For each article in a feed, show” I  changed  to “Summary”
    4. For each of my spleencast feeds at, I scrolled down to the bottom of the “Troubleshootize” page and hit the “Resync Now” button
    5. I deleted and resubscribed to my spleencast, et voilĂ !   Weird code was gone, yay!

    I wrote a brief guide outlining the technical aspects of how I successfully published my podcast on
