Support » Plugin: myGWD RSS ShortCode » Thumbnails – Kaput

  • Plugin Author Mike W


    Hello all,

    We included a thumbnail feature in this release but we commented the line that adds functionality out because it was so buggy.

    The problem is, SimplePie (the library WordPress uses) has an issue with a feed item that does not contain a thumbnail (if this is active). Instead of just skipping the import of the thumbnail it will stall the script (and the entire wordpress page).

    I tried very many things to overcome this including putting the $item->thumbnail inside a if(!empty($item->thumbnail)) : condition, however if $item->thumbnail is activated in any way, the script stalls if one of the posts is missing a featured thumbnail.

    So, in order to ensure cross-compatibility on all websites we simply removed this. If you are confident that your RSS feed is properly using thumbnails, feel free to enable the line.
