Ask DN: Why DN RSS feed doesn't have a link to DN story?

6 years ago from , Freelancing Frontend developer

Hey all.

I am wondering why DesignerNews RSS Feed doesn't have a link to the story on DN. When I click on a story with my RSS reader, I only got the url that was posted as a story, but not the comments feed on DN about it.

I dig a bit into this and discovered that DN is actually serving a RSS feed item with a link with the following format :


This link actually redirects you to the website posted as a link, but sometimes I want to discuss and I go on DN and look for the same story.

Is this on purpose?
