    This feature is coming as a premium addon very soon.

    You can see it in action here:

    +1 for this feature. The image size would need to be changeable though :-)

    A beta version of the add-on is available from here:

    Whilst I have absolutely no problem paying for plugins (or even donating towards good/free plugins).. paying to be a Beta tester of an add-on, really?

    I have since come across an alternative plugin (not add-on), which does all of which your plugin and add-on does, and more - the price isn't much more than your add-on, and it's also been around for quite some time with relatively good feedback (..it's also not in Beta stage).

    If I'm to buy your plugin, please at least provide some screenshots of the new options/ features in the back-end.

    In regards to image thumbs, I assume that this can only grab a thumbnail IF the RSS feed in question contains image thumbnails?
    It may seem like a silly question but from my understanding, the WP RSS Feed (as standard) doesn't have thumbnail support - it must be added (either via plugin or by adding some code to the theme's functions file). What happens if some RSS feeds don't have RSS image thumbnail support? Is there an option to display a fall-back image?

    Lastly, can I ask why rather than releasing an add-on, you didn't just release a premium version of the plugin, to which any new features would be added?
    In terms of you making more £ I can understand, but in terms of us end-users, A) we really don't want to have to pay for all these add-ons individually and B) We really don't want to install numerous plugins for the same purpose.

    I assure you I'm not trying to be an a*se, just offering some feedback from an end-user point of view. I have several sites (and clients sites) who could really use something like your plugin (or the alternative plugin which I've come across) but I want to ensure I make the right choice of plugin from the outset. It's a really big deal for me.

    Regards

    This should help ...as long as the post contains featured images

    Your purchase link doesn't work at all. Is there any other way I can download this beta for testing?

    The addon is no longer in beta and will be available in the coming days, please be patient while I sort out the e-commerce part of the site.

    Jean Galea - since you chose to be ignorant and totally ignore my comment/ questions I instead used Japol69's code, which works perfectly fine.
    A customer lost.

    Thank you Japol69, most appreciated

    Glad you got it sorted Tom, the add-on will soon be out, and will include better thumbnail fetching functionality.
