Manage Custom RSS Feeds; How to incorporate images and text - doable?

good day dear linux-experts and users hello dear community,

Managing Custom RSS Feeds; How to incorporate images and text into a Custom RSS Feed?

is this possible?

well i heard about the feature of incorporating both - text and images into a RSS-FEED.

is this doable - with
a. every feed
b. certain feets

can you show me how to display images from RSS feed?

Which feed-reader should i use ?


according to this source of description

we can see that this is supported:

The <image> element allows an image to be displayed when aggregators present a feed.

Tips and Notes

Note: The image must be of type GIF, JPEG or PNG.

Child Elements of <image>

Tag Description

<description> 	Optional. Specifies the text in the HTML title attribute of the link around the image
<height> 	Optional. Defines the height of the image. Default is 31. Maximum value is 400
<link> 	Required. Defines the hyperlink to the website that offers the channel
<title> 	Required. Defines the text to display if the image could not be shown
<url> 	Required. Specifies the URL to the image
<width> 	Optional.  Defines the width of the image. Default is 88. Maximum value is 144

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<rss version="2.0">

  <title>W3Schools Home Page</title>
  <description>Free web building tutorials</description>
    <title>RSS Tutorial</title>
    <description>New RSS tutorial on W3Schools</description>

Guess that it is important that the rss-source offers an image.
without that - it would be impossible to show one...
