That’ll be hard to do with Hugo. There’s no way to tell it to use absolute URLs in the feeds only. I’ll need to set up an extra step of some kind. I’ll check it out.

I use a partial in my Hugo theme to replace relative links with absolute links in the content in XML (RSS) and JSON (JSON Feed, ActivityStream) files. It has a regular expression to find and replace all relative links with their abolute version. It’s probably easy to modify to replace relative image sources too.

Of course they are ignoring voices from the community! Only enterprise customers will be able to use this API for custom development.

Yesterday, I tried updating my server. How stupid was I, thinking everything will work without problems. It didn’t work. That stole me two hours of sleep and around 1 hour of time I could have used for more important things.
