Here’s what RSS is all about and how to subscribe:
What is RSS?
Real Simple Syndication (RSS) is a FREE way for us to send you our latest content straight to your computer. Simply, it lets you know we have added new content to the flokka site, or our members have added new content to their blogs.
You can see blog posts and articles in one place as they are published. Rather than browse or search flokka for new content, you can subscribe to the RSS feed for the content you want to receive and we will send the latest content to you!
When content to the feeds you have chosen is updated (eg. Featured articles), it will be sent straight to your RSS reader and available for you to view at your leisure. RSS feeds contain a headline, summary and a link back to the full story on the website.
RSS is simple, free and only takes a few minutes to set up.
You can get an RSS feed where you see the orange RSS icon on our site.
How do I use RSS?
The first thing you need is an RSS reader. This is software that checks your feeds and lets you read new content as its added. There are some good RSS readers available and they do not take long to access.
Generally, RSS readers come in two kinds. You can download a dedicated desktop reader. This allows you to store it on your main computer. Or you can set up a browser-based news reader. This allows you to catch up with your feeds from any computer, and it does not need a software download.
Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, has links to more than a hundred different RSS readers in its list of news aggregators. All you have to do is go to an RSS reader and follow the instructions on set-up.
Some of the more common web-based readers are:
- My Yahoo!
- Google Reader
How do I get a flokka RSS feed?
Once you have a reader, there are several easy ways you can set up your flokka RSS feeds.
Click on the orange RSS icon. If you have Internet Explorer 7.0 or Firefox 1.0 and above, it will automatically add the feed to your reader.
If you have an earlier version of Internet Explorer, you will be taken to a new page. Cut and paste the url of that page into your feed reader. Your reader will tell you how to save it. You are now enabled for that feed.
Don’t worry, it’s not as daunting as it sounds.
Once enabled, you will start being sent any new content from the feed you have chosen.
And here’s a simple and useful explanation of RSS:
