    It's broken. Not compatible with WP 3.5 or something.

    Hello, it works fine in all my testing and live environments and is compatible even with WP 3.6. So all I can do for now is ask you some questions to investigate the problem a bit more.

    • Do you have a post excerpt defined in your posts?
    • Do you have the settings for the rss feeds so that wp would consider the excerpt and not the post content when creating the feed?

    Those might be reasons, why the content is shown instead of the excerpt. And the image is always above the excerpt or content according to RSS specifications.

    Regards

    Hmmm... maybe it's my theme then? the same thing happened with another similar plugin I tried.

    - No post excerpt defined.
    - I have the feed set to "summary" if that's what you're asking. I'm not aware of a setting to consider excerpt vs actual content.

    Thanks for replying. That's cool you're already testing with 3.6.

    Hello again,

    it's not your theme as far as I have understood the WP loop for the feed. What wp does to create the feed is basically the following:

    • it looks whether you want to have the summary in the feed or not
    • if so, it takes the post excerpt of a post as summary of the post
    • if not so, it takes the post content as text for the feed

    So, what happens if you have checked the 'summary' box in the settings and you have no post excerpt defined, is that it still falls back to the whole post content.

    You could check whether the feed changes the behaviour / looks if you just take one of your old posts and write some text as the post excerpt and save it.
    Then you empty the cache of your browser and look at your rss or atom feed again. At least that one post should have changed by now.

    And about WP 3.6... I just try to avoid not working plugins with upgrading the WP core. ;)

    Regards

    Btw, I could also build in an option to force an excerpt. You could limit the content to a certain amount of words or sentences then. How does that sound?

    Cheers

    That would be awesome. I'm incredibly busy right now, so sorry I dont' have time to do the testing you requested. I might get to it eventually, but am just slammed right now.

    If you wanted to make the update though, I'd be happy ti install and see if it fixes things. Thanks!
