[resolved] WP RSS Images plugin - Issues with caching and dimension options (2 posts)

    While this plugin appears to work for 3.2.1, it was not obvious when first implemented.

    Our RSS feed for our WordPress site was set to update hourly and as a result, it didn't immediately show the new image media that was being linked in the feed. This isn't the plugin's fault, of course, but it's still something to keep in mind when setting this up for the first time.

    One problem I did find with the plugin was with its "Select the size of the images" options on the plugin's settings (Thumbnail, Medium Size, Full Size).

    These don't line up with the options in Media settings (Thumbnail size, Medium size, Large size) nor the Gallery settings when editing a post (Thumbnail, Medium, Large, Full Size). On the plugin page, it says, "You can change the dimension of this sizes under Settings/ Media." Then why is it that the Large size is missing? This is very confusing and I'm still a bit unsure of how these settings are being fed.

    It's also unclear how exactly this is working with images that are uploaded through the Gallery and dynamically generated to the size dimensions specified in Media.

    I've figured out that the options in "Select the size of the images" are in fact fed by the options in Media settings, it's just that Large is missing. This was confusing in my case because the dimension size I needed happened to be the Large option. I've since changed things around and I'm now using the Medium option.

    I pleadfully recommend the creator of this plugin to make it more obvious in the message that the Large option is simply not available (disabled radio button maybe?) so that future developers don't bang their heads against the Admin panel trying to figure out what's going on.
