Embed RSS (XML) on campaign

Hi,

Need a little help here. I'm trying to embed XML from RSS to my campaign, all tags work except [XML_FEED_ITEM_IMAGE].
I would like to know which part of RSS item pulled by this tag?

I've tried these:
- item.media:thumbnail.url
- item.media:content.url
- item.image
But none works.

Thanks

Hi Rob,
Thanks for that. I've checked that and used [XML_FEED_ITEM_IMAGE] but still no luck.
Here's what my RSS item look like:
Code:
<item>
<title>A Title</title>
<link>
http://domain.com/4321.html
</link>
<description>
Some description....
</description>
<media:content url="http://domain.com/images/image4321.jpg" type="image/jpeg"/>
<media:thumbnail url="http://domain.com/images/image4321.jpg"/>
<enclosure url="http://domain.com/images/image4321.jpg" type="image/jpeg"/>
</item>

Hey,

How about you try with:
Code:
<media:content="http://domain.com/images/image4321.jpg" />
or:
Code:
<enclosure url="http://domain.com/images/image4321.jpg" type="image/jpeg"/>
But not both

THANKS!

This works (media:thumbnail and enclosure removed)
Code:
<media:content>
http://domain.com/images/image4321.jpg
</media:content>

Another simple questions.

1. Is it possible to use first rss item TITLE as email subject? If so, what tag should I use?

2. I have 5 RSS items and I want to have different placement of the items in the campaign like this:
- I want the first one to be placed as a headline, using a big image and a title plus rss item description.
- While the rest (2-5) are placed on sidebar of the campaign, using small images and titles only, without item description.
Can I do a numbered RSS tags, something like this:
Code:
[XML_FEED_BEGIN url='http://www.bata.com/news/feed/' count='5']
        <table>
            <tr>
                <td align="center" width="450">
                    <a href="[XML_FEED_ITEM_LINK_1]">
                        <img src="[XML_FEED_ITEM_IMAGE_1]" width="430"/>
                    </a>
                    <strong>[XML_FEED_ITEM_TITLE_1]</strong><br />
                    <p>[XML_FEED_ITEM_DESCRIPTION_1]</p>
                </td>
                <td align="center" width="150">
                      <table>
                           <tr>
                               <td>
                                   <a href="[XML_FEED_ITEM_LINK_2]">
                                   <img src="[XML_FEED_ITEM_IMAGE_2]" width="130"/><br />
                                   <strong>[XML_FEED_ITEM_TITLE_2]</strong>
                                   </a>
                               </td>
                           </tr>
                           <tr>
                               <td>
                                   <a href="[XML_FEED_ITEM_LINK_3]">
                                   <img src="[XML_FEED_ITEM_IMAGE_3]" width="130"/><br />
                                   <strong>[XML_FEED_ITEM_TITLE_3]</strong>
                                   </a>
                               </td>
                           </tr>
                      </table>
                             ......... (until 5)
                </td>            </tr>
        </table>
    [XML_FEED_END]

It is from next version, and also it's possible to use any number of feeds you want not like right now when you can only use a single feed.
Just stay tuned for upcoming version, somewhere this month.
(i think this answers both your questions).

What code did you use inside your Newsletter Editor to work with <enclosure......>???

I don't use <enclosure...>
Maybe you can try to use this (same as mine):
Code:
<media:content>
http://domain.com/images/image4321.jpg
</media:content>

This means you have to remove your <enclosure...> and change <image> to <media:content>
