MB ImageChimp RSS Feed Enhancer

Adds featured images to the default RSS feed for use with MailChimps image merge-tag

This plugin makes it easy to display the featured images of your posts in mailchimp RSS newsletters.

Once activated this plugin will add the following to your sites default rss feed:

To the rss name space declarations:

xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/"

To each individual item (if it has a featured image):

<media:content url="[url]" type="[mimetype]" medium="image" width="100%" height="auto">
    <media:description type="plain"><![CDATA[title]]></media:description>
</media:content>

The featured images are not inserted directly into the content of your posts, so you have full control over where and how to present them. If you send out newsletters using a Mailchimp RSS based Campaign, simply place the *|RSSITEM:IMAGE|* merge-tag in your mail template where you want the featured image inserted.

This plugin contains

  • 100% clean lightweight code.
  • 0% JS
  • 0% CSS
  • 0% options

The plugin uses the hooks ‘rss2_ns’ and ‘rss2_item’, part of the WordPress core API.
Tested with WP 3.7.1 and MailChimp Dec 2013
