I want my RSS feed to show images

  1. Hi I want my RSS feed to show the featured image for a post. It is showing them as media files on the feed page but not as an actual image and is not being pulled through when using Feedburner.

    Any Suggestions or help greatly appreciated!

    The blog I need help with is lyndseyblog.wordpress.com.

  2. Custom excepts work in Twenty-Ten for archives pages, and I think also in RSS feed.

    Depending on the theme you have activated, excerpts you assign may be displayed on your homepage, RSS feed, or archives page.

    and

  3. Can it be done without using custom excerpts?

  4. I don't know of any other way. But I've discovered on my private test blog, some themes can use custom excerpts for only RSS feeds—just by accident and seeing feeds in other themes I have tried for other reasons…

    Sorry but I'm no where near as thorough with function experiments as Panos was. Activate the custom excerpt module and see what happens when you write in it.

  5. Thank you for your help Tess but I don't seem to be able to add images into the custom excerpt field. It changes the text fine, but can't add an image, which kind of defeats the object.

    Any further help greatly appreciated!

  6. Basically for the feed reader I am using I need the image to be in the description tags of the RSS feed. Anyway of doing this through WordPress? There are plenty of plugins and resources for wordpress.org site but not wordpress.com!

    Please help!
