WordPress tip: how to display featured images on RSS feed

Here is a simple code which let you display the featured images of your posts in your RSS feed…

…in that way, your featured images will be displayed on all your social feeds, like Facebook for instance.

Please add this code in your functions.php file :

[icon style= »chain » color= »red »]functions.php[/icon]

  • Use this code to display the featured images :

[code]
function imageRSS($content) {
global $post;
if ( has_post_thumbnail( $post->ID ) ){
$content =  » . get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, ‘thumbnail’, array( ‘style’ => ‘float: right; margin:0 0 10px 10px;’ ) ) .  » . $content;
}
return $content;
}

add_filter(‘the_excerpt_rss’, ‘imageRSS’);
add_filter(‘the_content_feed’, ‘imageRSS’);
[/code]

 

  • Use this code if you have the Get the image plugin, in order to scan the pictures in your post if it doesn’t have featured image :

[code]
function imageRSS($content) {
global $post;
if ( has_post_thumbnail( $post->ID ) ){
$content =  » . get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, ‘thumbnail’, array( ‘style’ => ‘float: right; margin:0 0 10px 10px;’ ) ) .  » . $content;
}
else {
$content =  » . get_the_image(array(‘width’ => 150, ‘image_scan’ => true , ‘image_class’ =>  », ‘meta_key’ => array( ‘Thumbnail’, ‘thumbnail’ ))) .  » . $content;
}
return $content;
}

add_filter(‘the_excerpt_rss’, ‘imageRSS’);
add_filter(‘the_content_feed’, ‘imageRSS’);
[/code]

[code]

function show_image_feed($content) {

global $post;
$args = array(
‘post_type’ => ‘attachment’,
‘numberposts’ => 1,
‘post_status’ => null,
‘post_parent’ => $post->ID
);

$attachment = get_posts($args);

if ($attachment) {

$content = ‘

‘ . $content . ‘
ID) .' »>Read the rest.’; } return $content; } add_filter(‘the_excerpt_rss’, ‘show_image_feed’);

[/code]
