    Manage Custom RSS Feeds; How to incorporate images and text?


    good day dear linux-community,

    Managing Custom RSS Feeds; How to incorporate images and text into a Custom RSS Feed?

    is this possible?

    well i heard about the feature of incorporating both - text and images into a RSS-FEED.

    is this doable - with
    a. every feed
    b. certain feets

    can you show me how to display images from RSS feed?
    Note - i run a joomla-cms. And i want to use the RSS-Feeds in the joomla-cms.


    Which feed-reader should i use ?

    according to this source of description http://www.w3schools.com/rss/rss_tag_image.asp

    we can see that this is supported:


    The <image> element allows an image to be displayed when aggregators present a feed.

    Tips and Notes

    Note: The image must be of type GIF, JPEG or PNG.

    Child Elements of <image>

    Tag Description


    Code:
    <description> 	Optional. Specifies the text in the HTML title attribute of the link around the image
    <height> 	Optional. Defines the height of the image. Default is 31. Maximum value is 400
    <link> 	Required. Defines the hyperlink to the website that offers the channel
    <title> 	Required. Defines the text to display if the image could not be shown
    <url> 	Required. Specifies the URL to the image
    <width> 	Optional.  Defines the width of the image. Default is 88. Maximum value is 144
    
    Example
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
    <rss version="2.0">
    
    <channel>
      <title>W3Schools Home Page</title>
      <link>http://www.w3schools.com</link>
      <description>Free web building tutorials</description>
      <image>
        <url>http://www.w3schools.com/images/logo.gif</url>
        <title>W3Schools.com</title>
        <link>http://www.w3schools.com</link>
      </image>
      <item>
        <title>RSS Tutorial</title>
        <link>http://www.w3schools.com/rss</link>
        <description>New RSS tutorial on W3Schools</description>
      </item>
    </channel>
    
    </rss>
    Guess that it is important that the rss-source offers an image.
    without that - it would be impossible to show one...
