Hetjens MediaRSS


This plug-in adds the post thumbnail of articles to the RSS and Atom feed via Media RSS (MRSS) specification. Media RSS was
invented by Yahoo as an extension to RSS feeds used for syndicating multimedia files (audio, video, image). This
plug-in adds the post thumbnail defined by author of the article to RSS and Atom feeds of the blog. This plug-in
activates the post thumbnail feature of WordPress, if the theme is not doing it. It is enough to activate the plug-in
to work, it has no configuration parameters.

MediaRSS is a nice addition to your blog if you want to syndicate your content to other platforms. More and more
platforms and RSS feed readers support it. The Notes App of Facebook recognize the post thumbnail and displays it in
every newsfeed item.
