Images in News Feed

April 5th, 2010 by Erick Beck

We are happy to announce a new, if minor, improvement to the University News and Information website.  In the new system, we are able to include thumbnail images associated with each story.  Now these will be included in the RSS feed as well.  Any story that has a thumbnail will now include a link to its thumbnail in an <enclosure> feed tag, which can be parsed out by most standard RSS libraries.

This doesn’t have any large immediate impact, but anyone who wants to include the news on their website can now do so with images.  In the long term we actually plan on using this concept on the front page of the university website to create some real “Feature Articles” and thereby add some visual spice to what is now a somewhat mundane text-list of headlines.
