    Hey Guys,

    I'm importing a friends RSS feeds and would like the Feeder to import any images included - is this possible?

    Or is there an addon that can do this?

    It should grab images within the media tag.

    Do I have to add that in?

    I currently have the feeder import box displaying the default:


    url="{link}"Continue reading.../url

    ...the bottom line is in BBcode, but i removed the ['s.

    also - is there a way to have feeder import just ONE item, in the designated time frame that you select?

    it seems to import multiple each manual import, so i want to make sure it's not importing 5+ posts each 24 hours that I run it.

    What is the feed you're pulling from? If the image is in the content (as HTML), it will be pulled in like that. Otherwise, it'd have to be an enclosure which is separate.

    The feeder will pull in any entries that it hasn't seen before with a cap (5 per run). There's no option to control that.

    Can I request the ability for us to set the amount of imported content per feed, to be considered for the future?

    The feed originator has control over the content in the feed.

    At best you would only be able to reduce the content, not change nor increase it.
