Code to Add Featured Images to RSS Feeds

In wordpress the post thumbnail or featured images are usually only displayed within your site design. You can easily extend that functionality to your RSS feed with a simple function in your RSS feed.

function rss_post_thumbnail($content) {
global $post;
if(has_post_thumbnail($post->ID)) {
$content = '<p>' . get_the_post_thumbnail($post->ID) .
'</p>' . get_the_content();
}
return $content;
}
add_filter('the_excerpt_rss', 'rss_post_thumbnail');
add_filter('the_content_feed', 'rss_post_thumbnail');
