RSS Featured Image

Description

RSS Featured Image adds the featured image into your RSS feed (in the media:content). It works nicely with Mailchimp (|RSSITEM:IMAGE|). In fact, it basically does the same thing as another (and more famous) plugin but without cluttering your WordPress Admin. This is a simple task, and I believe it should be invisible and run peacefuly in the background, with no impact on the UI and the overall WordPress performance.

Usage

By default, the size of the image is “large”. I think it would be a shame to add new options to your WordPress admin only for this, so if you want to change the size, I propose you a filter 🙂 You can include some code in your functions.php to take care of this. This is how you can use it:

function thumbnail_size_for_rss( $default ) {
return ‘thumbnail’;
}
add_filter( ‘rfi_rss_image_size’, ‘thumbnail_size_for_rss’, 10, 1 );

Screenshots

Installation

  1. Upload rss-featured-image to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. That’s all 🙂 Can you believe it?

The RSS feed of my personal blog is important for me as an open source software contributor. This plugin makes sure that RSS consumers of my blog get a first-class experience. I love this plugin because it is lightweight and does exactly what I need without adding bloat. Thanks for maintaining it and keeping this up-to-date!

This plugin has worked for me for a really long time, and still works just fine with the current WordPress 6.0.1 (as expected). Thanks for a simple & effective way to add Featured Images to WP that stays in the background, doing its job. Much appreciated.

Just like the big bloated famous one that's promoted with affiliate links, this one simply adds an image to your RSS feed. I'm still using it with WP 5.8 and it works fine.
