Hi Fotis,

Got another question/suggestion for you. I am trying to create an RSS feed ( afloat.ie/itemlist?format=feed&type=rss ) in a Mailchimp newsletter for a client but it is not picking up the images as they are added within the 'description' tag rather than a media tag. Is there any way that this can be changed?

Thanks,
Dave

Added image as an enclosure object.

Check the latest snapshot uploaded in the K2 Demo site and more specifically: demo.getk2.org/categories?format=feed

Keep in mind that Joomla's feed renderer does not support the media object, so unfortunately, I can't add videos, image galleries and attachments to the feed. But at some point in the near future, as K2 move's away from Joomla's too-opinionated/abandoned features, it'll sport its own feed renderers.

Version 2.10 has some nice features baked in for feed and JSON outputs which I'll make sure to mention in the release blog post in the coming days.

That's great, thanks Fotis. Don't think we really need the video etc in an RSS Feed but definitely handy to be able to pull out the main image. Thanks for the prompt response.

Sorry Fotis, I thought I had replied to this again but can't have saved it properly. The feed still doesn't work as expected unfortunately. As outlined on this page here, mailchimp.com/help/rss-merge-tags/ Mailchimp says that images should be enclosed in 'Media' tags rather than an 'Enclosure' tag. Is this something that you would be able to implement?

Thanks,
Dave

As I mentioned earlier: "Keep in mind that Joomla's feed renderer does not support the media object, so unfortunately, I can't add videos, image galleries and attachments to the feed."

This is a Joomla limitation when it comes to producing feed content.

And I'm afraid I don't have the time to create a custom feed renderer for v2.10 specifically. I will certainly consider it for future versions though.

Ah okay, when you said that I thought you meant that it could do images but not the other media types. No worries though Fotis, completely understand that there are always going to be limitations in place there. Thanks for keeping it in mind for future versions though.

Hi both,

I've had a site(actually quite a few) running K2 for years and someone recently requested an RSS feed. I haven't even looked at an RSS feed for something like 5 years. When I look up a feed URL, I get a file download dialog in firefox, and chrome renders the attached.

on a dev server the URL looks like

newmember.test/index.php?option=com_k2&view=itemlist&layout=category&task=category&id=554&format=feed

Which I think is the correct structure

I remember them being rendered in a much nicer way years ago and wonder if something is corrupted, or is this how RSS "works" these days? Would something like feedburner or hootsuite read this output fine? Sorry if its a daft question!!

cheers,

Gavin
