  • Hi Dukewes,
    Actually feedzy uses the images contained within the feed’s items. That’s why you can’t specify the size of them.

    Nevertheless, if you are administrator of the site where you’re picking the feed, you can add this short function in it functions.php file :

    function bweb_feedzy_insert_thumbnail_RSS( $content ) {
    global $post;
    if ( has_post_thumbnail( $post->ID ) ){
    $content = '' . get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, 'medium' ) . '' . $content;
    return $content;
    add_filter( 'the_excerpt_rss', 'bweb_feedzy_insert_thumbnail_RSS' );
    add_filter( 'the_content_feed', 'bweb_feedzy_insert_thumbnail_RSS' );


    the only place i saw this issue is with blogspot because they only give 72x72px through the rss feed but if you edit freedzy-rss-feeds-shortcutcode.php and use this quick fix until the developer is able to do something better, find Fetch image thumbnail around line 127 replace the whole function with the below:

    //Fetch image thumbnail
    			if ( $thumb == 'yes' || $thumb == 'auto' ) {
    				$thethumbnails = feedzy_retrieve_image( $item );
    //Replace Blogger(Blogspot) thumbnail size from 72px to 250px
    $thethumbnail = str_replace('s72-', 's250-', $thethumbnails);

    Yes its a quick fix and if an update comes out with out this issue being resolved you will need to add the code again, but if like me your site design and function means everything this quick fix will help a lot.

    The size of the images I am fetching doesn’t appear to be an issue. If you take a look at the news feed on my site (, you can see the images are very blurry, but if you open up the articles, you can see the images are of very large size. I am, however, fetching from this feed: Could this be affecting the resolution of the images?

    Hi Guys,
    @dxlwebs: Thanks for the tip, i’ll probably add it to the next version of feedzy.
    Dukewes: The images within your feed are only 80x80px, that’s why they looks blurry. Eg:
    So I suggest you to define the feedzy thumbs size parameter to 80.

    That worked! Thank you!
