What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML format designed for sharing web content like news headlines. An RSS service consists of a list of items, a description of each, and a link to a webpage.

How do I use RSS?

To use RSS, you will need a special RSS news reader or aggregator that will allow you to collect and display RSS service. RSS news readers allow you to view all your different RSS feeds in the same place and, by automatically retrieving updates, stay current with new content soon after it is published.

There are many different news readers available, many for free. Most news readers are applications that you download and install. Some others are web-based services you sign-up for that work inside an Internet browser.

A list of news readers

After setting up your news reader you will be ready to use RSS feeds. To subscribe to our feed, right-click on the link above (with single-button mouse hold down the control-key and click on the link) and select "Copy Shortcut" or "Copy Link Location" to copy the location (URL) of the service. Follow the instructions for your particular news reader, and then paste this location wherever it asks for the location of the service you wish to subscribe to.
