WP Feed Post Thumbnail is very lightweight and only adds two small options under Settings -> Reading.

Does the RSS feed still validate with this plugin enabled?

Yep, we add the proper XML namespaces for that. Everything just works as expected!

Any way to force the plugin to always add a certain thumbnail size?

Yes. The plugin has two filters available for this:

// Filters the size on media:content tag. Defaults to 'full'.
add_filter( 'wp_feed_post_thumbnail_image_size_full', function( $size ) {
    return 'large'; // Return any registered image size.
}, 10, 1 );

// Filters the size on the media:thumbnail tag. Defaults to 'thumbnail'.
add_filter( 'wp_feed_post_thumbnail_image_size_thumbnail', function( $size ) {
    return 'medium'; // Return any registered image size.
}, 10, 1 );

Reviews

Not adding anything…

Tried refreshing permalinks, saving settings on the General settings page you’ve added the two checkboxes to, nothing makes a difference. No post thumbnail in the feeds…

Update! And then it started working!

I’m guessing this may have had something to do with either my hosting’s caching or possibly even just my own browser cache. Works like a dream, thank you!
