    Importing RSS Feed Issue

    Hello everyone. I am currently using wordpress and the RSSImport plugin to capture local news articles to place on my website. The only problem is that none of the feeds will show the description regardless of my selection in the shortcode nor will they show the images from the feed.

    I would really like to know of anything I can do to make this happen. I really like Topix's display of RSS feeds and would like to know if I could accomplish something like this?

    I'm new to coding and this would be a great help.

    You can see the feed and view the source code at www.statelinereye.com/news

    Thank you!

    Can you post the shortcode you are using as well as the feed you are trying to import?

    Yes...Thank you.

    Here is the shortcode I am using for RSSImport:

    [RSSImport display="10" feedurl="http://blog.lehighvalleylive.com/phillipsburg_impact/atom.xml"
    displaydescriptions="true" html="true"]

    The feed is here: http://blog.lehighvalleylive.com/phi...mpact/atom.xml

    The shortcodes for RSSImport can be found here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/rss-import

    I can't seem to get the description function to work no matter how hard I try. I also would like to pull the images as well from that feed and display them next to the stories as seen in the Topix news pages.


    Is that possible?

    I am so thankful for your help.

    It seems the RSSImport plugin doesn't support atom feeds. RSS Just Better does support atom feeds and can display the descriptions but only partially but it can't display images. The SimplePie RSS reader can display descriptions and supports Atom feeds but not images. Supposedly image support is coming in a future release of RSS JB. I haven't been able to find a reader that will show images as well.
