WordPress Featured Image into your blog Feed

The new release of the wp rss image wordpress plugin allows to include the “Featured Image” of your post as thumbnail into your blog feed. If you don’t assign a thumbnail to the post the plugin takes the first image uploaded to the post gallery.

This version also avoid the extra http request to determinate the size of the images, reducing the loading time. Also is important to use any cache plugin to improve your site response.

The plugin is available here:

Accordion Image Menu V 3.1 – Less Code More Flexibility

This is a new release of the Accordion Image Menu Worpress plugin. The plugin allows to use the feature images or the images uploaded to the posts and pages galleries as background for the menu items.

On the previews versions the accordion was based on mootools but its causes a lot of interaction with others popular plugins which use jquery. So, I decided to implement a jQuery Plugin that allows the same functionality and avoid including another javascript framework.

Special Features

  • Allows to combine pages and categories and apply order to them
  • Can be integrated with the wordpress > 3.0 menus interface
  • The plugin uses the medium size image attached to post and pages
  • The menu uses the top image from the posts/pages gallery
  • You can use it to list recent posts
  • Multiple transition effects included (Elastic, Bounce, Sine, Pow, Quart, Back, Circ)
  • You can include ‘the title’ of the target pages
  • Allows to include multiple menus on your blog
