ADSHG Website Alert RSS Feed - www.addisons.org.uk

By Nick Willson  Wednesday, 04. July 2007 22:26:22

The ADSHG Website Alert RSS feed allows you to see when we add new topics and information to the ADSHG website. In this way your computer automatically informs you when topics appear on our homepage, without you needing to first visit the website.

 

What are RSS Feeds?

Our RSS1 feed allows you to see when the we add new content to www.addisons.org.uk. In this way your computer automatically informs you when new topics appear on our homepage, without you needing to first visiting the website.  The RSS Feed replaces the previous ADSHG Website Email Alert, which has now been retired from use.

What do I need to receive these feeds?

In general, the first thing you need is some form of news reader. This is a piece of software that checks the feeds you have subscribed to and lets you read any new articles that have been added. There are many different versions, some browsers now support feeds directly, you can use your browser to access an on-line reader (provided for example by Google or Yahoo) or you can download a separate application to your PC.  The BBC website provides details of the various news readers.

The simplest way is to install Firefox 2.0.0 (or later) or Internet Explorer 7 (or later) which both now directly support RSS called "Live Bookmarks" in Firefox and "Feeds" in Internet Explorer.

How do I start using feeds?

Just click on the orange button below or the one on our homepage in one of these browsers and you will be taken to a special RSS webpage. Depending on your browser you need to click the "Subscribe Now" button, "Subscribe to this feed" link to register it with your browser.

You can then place the feed on your browser toolbar or in your browser favourites and it will show the current new content on www.addisons.org.uk

ADSHG Website Alert

1There is some discussion as to what RSS stands for, but most people plump for 'Really Simple Syndication'. In essence, the feeds themselves are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people.
