Does not pick up on relative blog urls

This plug-in works great as long as the URL in the link tag has the full URL of the feed. If it only uses the relative URL (i.e. without the http and domain), it will not pick up on it. Also, seems to have trouble with feeds that use URL parameters &. Fix those 2 issues and the plugin will be good.

Developer Response ,

Version 1.5.3 should be available in 24-48hr and fixes an issue that is likely the cause of the problem you are encountering with root relative URLs specifically on sites specifying a base URL with the base HTML element.

If you are still seeing the same issues once updated to 1.5.3 please send an example of both issues with the website URLs and what RSS application or web service you are using to
