Marketplace RSS /Atom feed is lacking of preview or thumbnail image. Currently it’s only display Title, and Desrciption and item’s category. It would be really nice if the RSS /Atom feed also display thumbnai/preview, so that buyers who subscribe to the particular feed can see the looks of the items before jumping into the site.
On the author side, we can plug the thumbnail using simple pie to promote newest items on author sites.
The Wordpress plug-in works for Wordpress users, but non WP users, must use other workaround. And I think using Simple-Pie is the easiest method to stream author’s items
It’s easy enough to add pics to an rss xml
I’d import with Drupal’s FeedAPI module; if the feeds had images in them, I’d be all set.
So that’s +2 on images in the RSS
