Reviews

Great plugin

It´s great to be able to have the RSS with images, but also to be able to configure for Mailchimp so your newsletters looks awesome. Also a great support from @endifmedia !

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.

Works great… with minor modifications

After some tweaking in the code to remove the image size limitations and pairing it up with the AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild plugin, this little plugin works great for our custom Mailchimp feed!

I also vote for the ability to have larger images since many RSS fed newsletters are 600px wide. Some clients do prefer a larger featured image option. Our tweak works, but then we have to remember to “fix” the plugin when we run an update.

Errors on character

This page contains the following errors:

error on line 197 at column 25: Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding !
Bytes: 0x03 0x43 0x6F 0x72

I tried changing settings, no fix 🙁
