RSS feed read more link points to wrong url!

I've set up a report using the RSS template and have configured it to save detailed pages. I set it up to upload to a server at the address digitalads.torstar.net. However, the "Read More" links in the RSS feed point to the Bonjour-friendly name of the host machine, which is fmserver8adv.local. As a result when I click read more I get a 404 error returned by our DNS servers.

Is there anyway to customize the url used by Simon?

Yes, certainly; you can edit the report templates to be however you wish.

The relevant line of the summary.rss template file is:

<link>{OutputLocation}{ShortName}.{DetailsExtension}</link>

You probably don't need to change that, though. {OutputLocation} is the URL where the report is saved or uploaded. So if you edit the report settings to use feed://digitalads.torstar.net/ as the Public URL, it should output correctly.
