Alternate Image Feature
FeedWind shows thumbnails when an RSS feed when images contain URLs. Without a URL, nothing is shown. The Alternate Image feature is a way to manually enter URLs for images that do not have them embedded in their metadata, so the thumbnail will always be shown in the feed. The feature is in place so users are always in control of the images shown in their feeds.
To use the Alternate Image feature:
- From the dashboard, navigate to the General tab.
- Select Thumbnail.
- Under the Thumbnail tab, find the text box labeled Alternate Image
- Enter the image URL in the text box. Click outside the box to refresh the preview.
- Click Save and Get code to copy the update feed URL for use on your site or blog.
Please note that while this feature allows you to place any URL that you cut and paste from an external source, it does not contain a mechanism that identifies copyrighted materials. As such, you should only use URLs from images that you own or those that are royalty-free.
