    Hi
    the plugin returns what is stored inside the custom field
    it seems that your custom field stores the ID (75889) of the object and not the full URL
    you should find a way to store the full url inside the custom field or another field based on the ID

    hope that helps

    Thanks. This has helped. I am trying to have a feed that will dynamically create a field that
    1) shows only the most recent post only for a category I specify (e.g. Wear It Wednesday)

    2) includes at least the following fields:
    <title> the title of the blog post
    <link> permalink to the blog post
    <rss_email_image> this is a custom field that is an image I want to specify
    <rss_email_body_copy> this is a custom field that includes some text I want to specify.

    Here is an example of the feed without the Custom Simple RSS parameters
    https://blog.shopathome.com/index.php/category/wear-it-wednesday/feed

    Notice the
    <title>Wear it Wednesday: How to dress like Jessica Alba</title>
    It also does not include the custom fields I need.

    However, with the parameters added I see a different post as the most recent. This post is not from the wear-it-wednesday category. It is uncategorized:

    https://blog.shopathome.com/index.php/category/wear-it-wednesday/feed?call_custom_simple_rss=1&csrp_show_meta=1

    Notice that the title of the post is
    <title>
    <![CDATA[ Introducing In-Store Cash Back! ]]>
    </title>

    Can you provide some guidance on why the feed is pulling from a different category? Is there a different parameter I should be calling?

    Hi
    first of all you should call the url directly like so :
    https://blog.shopathome.com/?call_custom_simple_rss=1&csrp_show_meta=1

    to show posts from specific category or categories
    &csrp_cat={category id}
    or
    &csrp_cat=2,6,17,38

    to show latest 10 for example
    &csrp_posts_per_page=10&csrp_orderby=date&csrp_order=DESC

    Hope that helps
    best regards
