RSS with Images


A simple and easy way to add featured images in your site’s RSS feed with customizable sizing options.

Works great with Mailchimp’s RSS-to-Email campaigns, allowing you to be more creative and get the most value from your email newsletters. You can even set the xml encoding of your RSS feed. (the default setting is UTF-8).

For more information on setting up and using RSS with Images, view the documentation here.

note: RSS with Images will not add already existing images to your feed. Once the plugin is activated, any new image added to a post will be included in the feed.

For additional features you can also check out the RSS with Images Pro version.

Rate this plugin, I would LOVE the feedback!

Nag line can't be dismissed


While I think it is OK to inform the user once, I don't like, that the Dasboard Notification "Want more features? Upgrade to RSS with Images Premium " can't be dismissed. If I click on the cross to close the information, I comes back after every reload of the page.

I reported this as bug already two month ago and I am annoyed now.

Does what it says on the tin


Had to leave my first ever rating for a WordPress plugin because I felt the current 3/5 star rating was extremely unfair. I've used this plugin on a production site for over a year (to integrate with Mailchimp RSS campaigns) and it's worked flawlessly.
