Here Is A Guide to Using RSS Feeds

RSS makes it easy to stay up to date. You can identify content you like and have it delivered directly to you.

What is RSS?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. An RSS feed is simply a list of items, each containing a headline, description, and a link to a web page.

This website  provides RSS feeds so you can subscribe to the content and receive updates automatically straight to your computer.

How can I start using RSS feeds?

To view RSS feeds you will need an RSS aggregator, more commonly referred to as a ‘reader‘. The reader checks the feeds you are subscribed to and displays any new content. This means you don’t have to check individual websites for updates – the reader does it for you. Typically a reader will automatically check for new content every hour.

Each feed is treated a bit like a folder in an email program, with a number in brackets next to the name of the feed – this shows how many new stories there are.

When you click on a story, you see the headline, a brief summary, and a link to the full story.

Depending on which reader you use, when you click the link, it either opens a web page within the reader interface, or opens up in your web browser. Some RSS feeds provide you with the full story so there is no need to visit the website.

Where can I get an RSS reader?

There are hundreds of RSS readers available on the Internet, and the majority are free to download and use. We recommend Feed Reader

Other Type Of RSS Readers

Web-based readers:

Free websites like Bloglines and NewsGator allow you to log in and check your feeds, a lot like web-based email accounts. Use a web-based RSS reader if you want to be able to check your feeds from any computer in any location.

Web browsers with built in RSS readers:

The most recent web browsers have RSS readers built in. The latest versions of Mozilla Firefox and Apple’s Safari both have native support for RSS feeds, as well as version 7 of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.

How do I subscribe to an RSS feed?

To subscribe to a feed, you need to add it to your reader. The standard way to indicate a feed is with an orange icon like you see on the bottom left of this page
