URL Absolutifier WordPress Plugin 1.0 Released

Just uploaded a small WordPress plugin, URL Absolutifier, that converts relative links and image sources in WordPress RSS/Atom feeds into absolute URL. For example, from

<a href="/code/url-absolutifier">URL Absolutifier</a>


<a href="http://scott.yang.id.au/code/url-absolutifier">URL Absolutifier</a>

It was written because (1) I like to use relative URL when I write my blog posts (2) feed should not contain relative URL references (3) some feed readers can't handle them, most notably Bloglines. I do not agree that it's feed readers' fault, as feed validator isn't happy about it either. Fortunately WordPress provides sufficient hooks for 3rd party developers to fix up its brokenness.
