Customizing RSS feed for Mailchimp's RSS to newsletter (2 posts)

    Hey all,

    I'm trying to customize an RSS feed to fit mailchimp's RSS-to-newsletter service. I'll start by saying that it's incredibly frustrating.

    I need 2 things:
    1. The image (or thumbnail rather) to be copied over
    2. The text to be copied over but shortened to maybe 60 words

    If there's a way to limit the text length of the standard rss content, that would work (I'd rather not use the_excerpt because it doesn't include the post's image). This would be the easiest way, if it's even possible.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm trying to do something similar and yes, it's very frustrating. Just commenting here to remind myself to update if I figure it out.

    Feel free to update yourself if you came up with a solution.
