Child theme that we can edit the functions.php file or a featured image rss plugin
we would either want to add the following code snippet to the Arras theme via a child theme or use one of the plugins.
Both discussed here:
We embrace whatever is easiest for you, but maybe a child theme that you give us write privileges is easiest and quickest?

Hi Stephen - We can do child themes - see https://dev.commons.gc.cuny.edu/hosting-partner-handbook/#custom-themes-and-plugins. But a child theme may be a larger commitment than what's called for in this case. You cannot edit the Commons codebase independently; you'd need to submit the theme to me, via Redmine, and I would review. You're also then responsible for maintaining the child theme over time, which may not work well with the way you're staffed.
A plugin built for this purpose is more likely to be maintainable for you and for our team in the long run. This one looks pretty good: https://wordpress.org/plugins/send-images-rss/ If you think it'll serve your purpose (perhaps you can test on a separate WP install, if you've got access?) then we can include it in our next maintenance release.

Thanks, Boone. I have a big request.
Could you add the following plugin previous to the release schedule?
Asking because we are developing our new site on:
release planned for MLK and we really need the feed from:
to populate our new site.
We thoroughly tested and know it works.
