    Hi –

    The above website embeds images with a relative URL. You can see an example at This is an issue because the blog posts are in a RSS feed that auto-emails people in our database via Mailchimp whenever there is a new blog post. When the blog post is formatted at Mailchimp, the absolute URL causes the email to look like it has a broken image link. How do I force the URL to be absolute so that images show up in the email people receive? I believe this is a theme issue but I am not sure where to look to find this.

    Thank you –

    Hi Laura,

    Good question. By default WordPress generates absolute URL’s for all images and other resources. It is possible for that to be disabled either via a plugin or a server setting. Often developers use a plugin like Root Relative URL’s ( when setting up a site as it can make it easier. Check your plugins to see if it’s being changed by one of them. If it isn’t, then check with your web host to see if they can help you out there.

    Take care,
