  2. Hi,

    Your plugin doesn’t seem to work properly for me. When I set it to use a thumbnail it doesn’t respect the size in the feed.

    It looks like it’s pulling in a full size image, I don’t know why it would do that. The RSS readers don’t seem to respect the “?resize” part, so I end up with a massive image.

    1. Here is where the problem seems to be, in the souce code of the RSS feed for the image it says:

      “Dave-Swift-2.jpg?resize=150%2C150″ width=”570″ height=”571”

      Now that is clearly not right, the RSS reader sees the width and height attribute and uses that, not the 150×150 resize… in actual fact, what it does is use a 150×150 resized image and force it up to 570×571 so you end up with a horribly pixelated thumbnail

  3. Hi,
    you have a bug in your code for enclosure tag. You hardcoded mimetype to “image/jpg”. the correct mime type is “image/jpeg”. Anyway, this still doesn’t work with a PNG file.
    You did it right on the media tag.
    Fixed lines of code look like this:

    list($width, $height, $type, $attr) = getimagesize($url);
    echo '';
    list($width, $height, $type, $attr) = getimagesize($url);
    echo '';

  4. Hello,

    I have wordpress 3.5 and just installed your plugin however I cannot get the images to come into my feedburner feed. I have cleared the cache, tried different browser, forced the feedburner feed to refresh, reposted a blog post.

    Please help.

    Thanking you.
    Kind Regards,
