RSS Featured Image

Description

RSS Featured Image adds the featured image into your RSS feed (in the media:content). It works nicely with Mailchimp (|RSSITEM:IMAGE|). In fact, it basically does the same thing as another (and more famous) plugin but without cluttering your WordPress Admin. This is a simple task, and I believe it should be invisible and run peacefuly in the background, with no impact on the UI and the overall WordPress performance.

Usage

By default, the size of the image is “large”. I think it would be a shame to add new options to your WordPress admin only for this, so if you want to change the size, I propose you a filter πŸ™‚ You can include some code in your functions.php to take care of this. This is how you can use it:

function thumbnail_size_for_rss( $default ) {
return ‘thumbnail’;
}
add_filter( ‘rfi_rss_image_size’, ‘thumbnail_size_for_rss’, 10, 1 );

Installation

  1. Upload rss-featured-image to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. That’s all πŸ™‚ Can you believe it?

Reviews

Does the job!

Very simple way to get the featured image into a mailchimp RSS campaign. Could have done with this years ago! Thanks.

Cool

It’s either this plugin or another plugin which has a lot of ads everywhere and force you to go Pro to actually use it. Only to add a few lines of XML code to an RSS feed, I think that should really be free and in a very light plugin.
