The Top Stories Slider, Blog Posts & Pages and  the and the News Boxes macros generating, like the original Confluence Blog Posts macro, generate an excerpt from the first couple of lines of a blog post (unless the actual like the original Confluence Blog Posts macro. Unless the actual Excerpt macro is used, then the content from the Excerpt macro body will be used instead). Due to a bug that was introduced in Confluence 5.4, images and links are not rendered properly any morein those macros. Instead of the actual image, the name of the image is shown and with links, instead of the rendered clickable link, the URL of the link is displayed.

This Confluence bug has been already reported to Atlassian, see CONF-34197 - Blog Posts Macro renders URLs as text when content = excerpts and post contains no excerpt.



Instead of letting Confluence generate the excerpt , using the beginning of the blog post content, you can use the the Excerpt macro to to define an excerpt including links and pictures.
