Today I want to tell you about “Adding thumbnails to RSS feed” or better to say “Show featured images in RSS feed“.

By displaying featured images or post thumbnails in your RSS feed (or Feedburner feed) you will make it more accurate, beautiful and more informative, especially if you are showing just excerpts of your posts. Text is boring, give some images to your subscribers.

As an example you can visit My RSS Feed, Don’t forget to subscribe!

My statistics shows that subscribers are coming from RSS readers more often if your post have some images.

That trick is working on my blogs, maybe it will work on yours.

To output your featured images in your RSS feed, you need to add some code to your file.

Go to your Word Press Dashboard / Appearance / Editor, choose and add this code at the end in new line (make a copy of your file… This hack is working (for Word Press 2.9 and later ) but not immediately, because Feedburner needs to update your changes first.

You need to wait 24 hours or write a new post to force Feedburner to update your feed.

I hope that this Word Press hack was useful for you.

Just leave a comment ff you have any questions about adding thumbnail images to your RSS feed and Feedburner.

Avoid creating multiple sidebars and duplicating widgets by adding check boxes to each widget in the admin (as long as it is written in Word Press version 2.8 format) which will either show or hide the widgets on every site page.

Great for use with Thesis theme, or just to avoid extra coding.
