Ahh… that's just one of the problems with not having an IT guru hiding in this place.  We've scratched around to try to fix the problem from this end, and for the time being we can't find a solution.  We're working on it, but in the meantime there may be something you can do:

Every instance that we've found of this occurring to date has been with Wordpress, so there's a fair chance that you have a Wordpress Blog which in its standard configuration does not serve "thumbnail" photographs to your RSS feed.   There are many sites offering instructions as to how to fix this, and in a few weeks if we can't solve the problem we'll try to post some directions here.

In the meantime, if you could try to work your way through the instructions found by searching Mr Google for "Wordpress Feed Thumbnails", apparently there is a plug-in available to do the job, or  perhaps you could try the following solution (found at the above link).    Please note we have not tested this code so do so at your own risk;

Paste the following code in your functions.php file. 
Apparently the post thumbnail should be visible once you saved the file.

function diw_post_thumbnail_feeds($content) {
global $post;
if(has_post_thumbnail($post->ID)) {
$content = '<div>' . get_the_post_thumbnail($post->ID) . '</div>' . $content;
return $content;
add_filter('the_excerpt_rss', 'diw_post_thumbnail_feeds');
add_filter('the_content_feed', 'diw_post_thumbnail_feeds'); 
 Don't forget to let us know how you got on so we can share your success (or learning curve) with others.


  1. cant see my blog .. even I m registeres since long time .. hamburgdaily photo ..

    1. Hello Hamburg Daily Photo

      Thank you for contacting the portal of the City Daily Photo community. I apologise for not listing your blog when we launched the portal, but we are missing many of our long-time bloggers and it will take time to get you all back again. I have copied your URL and will include it in the feed for the portal during our Australian Thursday. I have left this same message on your Hamburg Daily Photo blog.

      Could you send me a message via the drop-down 'Contact' of this portal to tell me your name please?

      Once again, my apologies for not including you.

  2. Not so easy to fix as this does not correspond at all to how's interface works, and to make it even harder I actually post via Windows Live Writer. Yes, I checked and

    My only suggestion is that you take your feed from my Feedburner rather than WordPress.

  3. Why is it so difficult to contact the admins of this page and to request a blog to be added to the portal? I have been trying to get a hold and nothing has changed. I still would like to be added.

    Thank you!

  4. Hi Hipsta Barista! It is difficult for me to contact you because you haven't left a contact email! I have actually sent three replies to a non-existant address, and to leave a comment on your blog requires registration at Tumblr!

    Please contact me using the contact form at and including your correct email address and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!




Hopefully you will find the answer to the most common issues we find with the here. If you can't find the answer you need, please contact us and we'll try to work with you to solve the problem.


Even a baby could install one of our banners in the side bar of your blog. Find them on our MEMBER'S BADGE PAGE!
