RSS Plugin not showing images

I am trying to get images to load in the RD Simple RSS plugin (left corner of news item). No image appears, only the text.

Hi @Tyroner

There aren't any images in this feed in the tradional sense. There are mp3 audio files, one for each story, but no story images.

There is a logo, (https://emergencymedicinecases.com/wp-content/uploads/powerpress/EMCases-logo-3000.jpg), possibly maeant to be used as an icon for each audio file. The xml label for this is <itunes:image which is a bit unsusal in my experience. I'm not sure if the rss plugin will know how to handle that or the audio, you would need to experiment. I have never tried the plugin with with mp3 files.

To look at an RSS feed, I open the URL using Firefox and then look at the page source and searchfor the images (e.g something that ends in .jpg or .png). The xml labels also need to match the valuse in the plugin.

Hope that helps, cheers, Alan
