Images not showing on Bloglovin (12 posts)

    This has been driving me absolutely crazy. I cannot get images to show up on Bloglovin and when contacting their support you get the standard "your RSS feed must contain images" email. This only adds to the frustration as my feed does have images.

    Feed: http://ababyssmile.com/blog/feed/
    I have the "full text" option checked.

    Any advise would be much appreciated.

    Your feed does validate with one error coming from a plugin.

    And like you say, the pictures are there. I am not sure how this is a WordPress problem?

    Thank you,
    I have disabled this plugin, just in case.

    I too fail to see how this is a WordPress problem, just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something. Anytime I have received a response from Bloglovin it has been "Your RSS-feed does not contain any images and that is the reason why bloglovin' is not displaying them. You will have to change the settings of your RSS-feed and not the settings on bloglovin'."

    I put my site on Bloglovin with the same results as you - no images. My feed, like yours, has images and validates. I also tried the default theme with the same results.

    I checked a random site on Bloglovin that had images. They were using wp also (3.4) but all their images were stored on Flicker. They were also using a content delivery network. Other than that, the source code in their feed looked the same as yours.

    I also checked to see if I had hotlink protection turned on - I thought I did. Turns out I didn't so that gets rid of another idea.

    I will try to refer this to another moderator for additional input.

    Thank you for this. I created a new post using an image hosted elsewhere and it showed up on bloglovin. Now just to figure out why images host on server show on feedly etc and not bloglovin.

    I should mentioned hotlinking protection is not turned on.

    My images used to show up just find on Bloglovin and now they're not. Also, having the same issue when I share links on Facebook. Images aren't showing up. So, this is definitely a WordPress issue.

    Was this ever fixed? I am so frustrated because none of my Bloglovin images are showing now when they were before.

    I am back. I just wanted to let you that I just checked my Bloglovin page and the images are now showing. YAY! The plugin I installed is http://wordpress.org/plugins/featured-images-for-rss-feeds/ It's compatible with 3.9.1, so maybe that is what helped me. Oh, I also had to do what you said and make sure full text was checked instead of summary.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I am having the same problem and I added the plug in but I am not sure where to check full text instead of summary.
    Thanks

    Puppymom, I believe you find it under settings, then once you see your settings, select reading and there will be two boxes full text or summary. Just select the full text box.

    Oh, the settings are in the left hand column of your dashboard.
