broken rss <link>

I migrated to askbot v43 from v36. Previously rss feed in the home page didn't work. After migration it generates the feed, but with a bug. The site address is duplicated in <link>. E.g. for the site, it shows up <link> ....

This is ok with the guid generation. (Properly shows <guid> ...)

Must be something wrong with the settings in your site an here, for instance rss link urls work.

Take a look at the domain name in you /admin/sites/ setting, there make sure not to enter the "http://" prefix.

Thanks. Yes, I see this working in askbot. Anyway, "http://" prefix isn't inside my /admin/sites/ setting.

Interestingly, it got fixed by giving 'http' prefix in settings/QA_SITE_SETTINGS/'Base URL for your Q&A forum, must start with http or https'. Thanks.
