What is RSS?

Wouldn't it be easier if instead of having to visit all of your favourite sites in turn and trawl through them looking for new content, you could have all the latest items delivered automatically to a single place on your computer?

RSS is a technology that allows this to happen!

What do I need to use RSS?

To use RSS it is necessary to have access to a News Reader. There are many different types, but the main choice is whether to use a web-based one (such as Yahoo, Bloglines, Newsgator or Google) or to download a standalone application (which runs on your PC even if you don't have a browser open).

After gaining access to a News Reader then it is necessary to subscribe to the feeds. The exact way to do this depends on the reader - consult your readers help documentation for guidance.

Some newer browsers (including Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera) offer support for RSS without the need for an additional reader. To check if your browser does provide support then consult the browsers help documentation.

Syndication of our content is now managed through Feedburner and all content is made available through one feed rather than separate ones
