Drupal 7. I'm bringing in an RSS feed, and for the most part it's working. It's not, however, bringing in the images with each entry. I tried adding an to the list of allowed tags in the admin screen, to no avail. The lines come across as this:

<media:thumbnail url="http://www.bjtonline.com/uploads/tx_bjt/FINAL3_Flexjet_thumb_b.jpg"/>

Any ideas?

  • That is the correct way (AFAIK) for embedding a thumbnail into an RSS feed. What result are you seeing and what result would you expect? – Jeremy French May 25 '11 at 15:25
  • The aggregator is simply bringing in the title - which is linked, correctly, to the articles' URL. I wanted to know how we can modify the module to we can also bring in the image. – Mike May 25 '11 at 15:47
  • Any ideas? I see where the module is bringing the data in, I guess I can customize it there... – Mike May 26 '11 at 14:42

As I've not gotten anywhere with this, I'm working around it. I'm only interested in bringing in the most recent article from a site that's on our own servers - so I'm writing a script that will import it into the node table and I'll use Views for the block.

I'll set the script to run nightly. Thanks for the help guys.

  • instead of this you should show up your script. – WaQaR Ali Sep 23 '15 at 5:22

You can use Feeds: MediaRSS module to fetch media:thumbnail type of data.

This is from the projects page, currently only supports following media types.

media:content - WORKING

media:title - WORKING

media:description- WORKING

media:keywords (csv)- WORKING

media:thumbnail (url) - WORKING

media:categories (csv)- WORKING

media:player (url) - WORKING
