A question about “get_favicon_url”; it loads the website and queries for “/html/head/link[@rel=“shortcut icon” or @rel=“icon”]”.
RSS has the “image” element and Atom has the “logo” element; are those looked at? I don’t see that they are. I have an instagram and twitter to rss plugin that puts the user avatar in the image element but the stock website favicon is used and the image is ignored. AFAICT anyway.
I was just wondering about the history of this functionality.
