Support » Plugin: Send Images to RSS » Formatting stripped from summary on 3.3.0

  • On update to 3.3.0, Send Images to RSS started stripping the formatting from the summary. Rolling back to 3.2.2, the summary respects my paragraphs, etc. again in the summary.

    My apologies for this reversion–an overzealous code sniffer had me make a change which made this happen. I will be pushing out 3.3.1 which will resolve this. Thank you for your patience–

    Thank you so much, Robin!

    Hi … hoping to resurrect this topic; successfully using Send Images to RSS to ensure images are turning up in Maichimp newsletters. Great!

    HOWEVER, it seems that the plugin is overriding the default text (the first paragraph or so of the WordPress blog entry), and substituting its own, which I have no control over.

    • If I manually create my own excerpts, I can gain a modicum of control over the text in terms of paragraph breaks, but the only way I seem to be able to modify the font or font size is to insert CSS via the span tag directly into the excerpt.

    • Both creating excerpts and styling them on an individual basis have a high time-cost, and I really want to eliminate that friction.

    What options do I have for a) preserving the default text that Mailchimp grabs in lieu of an excerpt and the formatting it then applies via the campaign template; or, barring that, b) preserving the default formatting of the Mailchimp campaign template for the manual-excerpt text?

    When processing the excerpts, the plugin takes either 1) the manually created excerpt; or 2) your entire post content, cut down to approximately the number of words you’ve set on the plugin settings page, ending in a complete sentence. Certain HTML tags are allowed by default, but you can allow more by using the send_images_rss_allowed_tags filter. Any styling is not inherited from your site–you are correct that it has to be done manually, or with inline styles. If you do not add your own inline styles for the excerpt, the Mailchimp campaign will apply whatever you have set there.

    If you provide a link for a post on your site, I can look at it and your feed and possibly help walk you through what’s going on, but this is a general overview.
