1. I’ve written just the same plugin, but it looks like I haven’t updated it in over two years so it’s not showing up on the wp.org repo any more! http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/feed-thumbnails/

    Thanks for the tip, John. I actually did search the repo before and didn’t find anything, so I just created it. Your plugin is a good in being able to extract images from the content as a fallback.

    Thanks a lot Kaspars! This is exactly what I need. Currently using it in my functions.php with some modifications.

    How come you put it in GitHub and not the WordPress plugin repository?

    • Kaspars says:

      I wrote the plugin for my own needs so I chose GitHub because I don’t want to deal with writing docs, etc. In addition, GitHub provides an easy way for others to contribute to the code. You don’t even need a local Git client to submit things like docs.

  5. Is your Plugin: Add Featured Images as Enclosures to Posts in WordPress RSS Feeds still current? I am using WordPress 4.2.2


  6. Nick says:

    This has been a nice solution for an issue I was having with one RSS feed, so thank you. I’m wondering if the php could be easily modified to pull the first post’s image instead of featured image?

    Hello Kaspars, I want to know if there is a way to use the full image size instead of the thumbnail.

    • Kaspars says:

      Yes, there is the rss_enclosure_image_size filter which can be used to set the thumbnail size. For example, this snippet will set the image size to “large” “full”:

      add_filter( 'rss_enclosure_image_size', function() {
          return 'full';
      } );
