  1. I have been using this for a couple days now and have 2 issues. 1) Is it possible for this plugin to be able to do what it does to images that are visible on my blog through flickr?
    2) When I use this for a local file (wordpress media library) it works fine until I try to erase the image, or overwrite the image. It never goes away, even if I replace it with another image, the original image always shows up in the RSS feed. The new image shows up in the blog, but not the RSS feed.

    1. Hi there -this plugin is exactly what we wanted – but if i change the image or remove it from a post then the image reference still remains in the RSS feed as you stated – in the <media:content RSS element . I tried it with different browsers and even though there is no image in the post anymore the feed still contains an image reference. Any ideas ?

  2. Is there a way to add the images to a custom feed. The client I am working with has certain posts he doesn’t want added to facebook so we developed a custom feed to omit those posts. However the theme I am using has disenabled the featured post option and I would really like to add images to each facebook post that appears.

  3. This sounds great, but I would like to use it to pull fss feeds from other sites.

    Can this be done, and where would I make the changes?


  4. Hi there – this is a great plug in, especially more inportant now in the age of smart aggregating sites.
    It’s working great for one site I have, but I can’t get it to work with a wordpress network – it doesn’t show up in the plugins dashboard. Am I doing something wrong or is it not designed to do this.

    It would be a great asset if it did.
