Feature request: image selector

Feature request to add an (advanced) field to the settings screen, so I add the CSS to select an image.
Use case:
In 90% of the case I can obtain the image for the page the url points to. For overview pages that point to URLs that are behind a paywall this would be quite useful!)

Hi Rene, we do want to offer image support in a future update. What would be useful for you, the selected image returned in the <description> (above any extracted description text) or in a separate enclosure element? (Or perhaps both?)

Personal preference: I’d like to be able to select it as a separate ‘enclosure’ element (as in the RSS 2.0 spec) https://validator.w3.org/feed/docs/rss2.html

Hi Rene,

Just a note to say we’ve now added support for an item image selector in Feed Creator.

The image URL is used in three places in the feed output: inserted into a media:content element, an <atom:link rel=”enclosure”> element, and a regular element inside a content:encoded element.

In the JSON output, the image URL will be included in a property with the name “image”.

Thanks! Nicely implemented, very versatile…
