Why Are There Duplicate Images Appearing In My Blog Posts From 3rd Party RSS Feeds?

This Article Is For:

  1. Clients using the RSS Subscription Settings
  2. Clients who see 2 images within blog posts that are pulled from 3rd party feeds.

You may on occasion have duplicate images appear in blogs posts that been added as a 3rd party feed via the RSS Subscription system. This is because most 3rd party feeds do not provide a featured image, so we have to pull the image from the blog description in order to generate one.

However if there is already a featured image tag set by the feed, then 2 images may appear within the post.

If this issue occurs for you, please use this javascript, and it to the Blog Category Custom Header HTML.

  1. <script>
  2. $(document).ready( function() {
  3. let featuredImg = $('.content-header .media-container img').attr('src');
  4. $('article img').each(function(){
  5. if ($(this).attr('src') == featuredImg) {
  6. $(this).remove();
  7. }
  8. });
  9. });
  10. </script>
