Add image to RSS Feed and customize (6 posts)

    I guess I really have 2 questions.

    1. I am viewing my rss newsfeed and the image is not appearing. http://community.lex18.com/sports/?feed=rss2&cat=3
    You can see the image in the story, but I want it in the newsfeed.

    2. Recommendations needed. I will be incorporating my WP blog into my existing website. I plan to use iFRAMES to show my rss feed. My question is when someone clicks a link to read an article, I am assuming the best thing for me to do is modify the template that appears to look like my actual website? Is that what you would suggest, or is there a different way to do this?

    1. Options->Reading. Turn on "Full Text" feeds.

    I plan to use iFRAMES to show my rss feed.

    That doesn't make any sense. Feeds are not web pages. There's no reason to put them into an iframe.

    Ok, maybe not explaining self well enough. I have another website and I want to add a section which displays the most recent blogs. I want to show the photos, title and snippet of blog. I assumed using my RSS feed would be the best way to do this. Do you suggest otherwise? And you're right, don't need to use iframe.

    Better explanation. In a nutshell, I need to be able to add the 5 most recent stories from my blog, into my own website. I would like for it to include the image associated with my blog, the title and some text. How do you suggest I do this? My rss feed appears to be working and showing the photo. What shall I use on my own website to display this information?

    Well, how you display a feed's content on your website sorta depends on the other website itself. What's it written in?

    It's in asp. I have been looking at using Feed For All's RSS2HTML feature which works great, except just having image issues.
