XF 1.4 Feeder - additional elements


Well-known member
When I'm trying to feed an rss to the xf feeder, I notice only specific elements can be displayed.

For example, I have a feed that includes:


The first two elements are text, and the other two are urls. I can display the first three but the fourth one simply does not return the url value when I click Preview Feed Entry, it simply shows {image}. The only difference between <link> and <image> is that the Image one has an https url instead of an http.

Any idea what I can do?
I don't believe an <image> tag is actually exposed on a per entry basis; I'm not sure it's actually a valid part of a feed. (Normally this is done through enclosures, which we do expose.)

{image} won't work though as we don't provide a replacement for it.
Thanks for the response Mike - I believe an RSS feed can contain anything in terms of tags etc, the <image> tag is there simply because I put it. I can name it any other way, but essentially all I need is to be able to get a url from one tag and use it in my posts.

Is there any other {element} name I can use to parse that url ?
RSS has a specification, so not all tags are allowed unless you potentially put them in extension namespaces, but getting access to that would require custom development.
