One of my feeds doesn’t show images – I only see broken images. I think it’s the image proxy newsblur uses in the Android app, and an update of imageproxy might fix it.
Some more detail:
The images render on the web (both story and story list), and they also render on Android in the story list – just not in the actual story.
Problem feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/SlickdealsnetFP
After some poking, I discovered it’s not the android app, it’s the imageproxy it uses (or maybe it’s how the android app is using the imageproxy).
The original image URL from the feed is https://static.slickdealscdn.com/attachment//1/7/4/6/2/3/4/200x200/9366914.thumb
The proxy request returns the error “requested URL is not allowed”.
I noticed some imageproxy bugs on calculating signatures for URLs with double slashes, which the original URL has.
Dunno if that’s a red herring, but it sounded plausible, especially if newsblur is still running an older version of imageproxy (the bugs I found were fixed in 0.10).
It might also be helpful to look at the server logs, it should give more context on what’s happening and why the request is returning a 403.
Alternatively-alternatively, is there a way to disable imageproxy? (My guess is no.)
