What is RSS?
To make content more readily available and to save you time we have RSS enabled the press release section of this site. This page is denoted with the RSS icon at the left hand side of the page.
An RSS feed (also referred to as, a "feed") is simply a subscription to updates from a Web site or Web page. Through RSS, you can be automatically notified as soon as updates are made. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. Technically, a "feed" is an XML file on each of these Web sites that is specially coded to list the latest news and updates in a machine-readable format.
To read RSS feeds, you will need some software on your computer (an RSS reader client) or access to a Web site that offers the same functionality. To "subscribe" to "feed", simply right-click the related icon and click Copy Link Location or Copy Shortcut, then paste it into your RSS reader.
What clients are available?
There are two main types of clients available, some free, some available for purchase. These are desktop aggregators installed on your computer and are available for Windows, Linux, and just about every other platform.
Web-based or online clients are special Web sites where you set up an account and then subscribe and read all your RSS feeds from the one location.
The desktop-based clients have the advantage of letting you read the news articles offline and being as fast as your computer. The web-based clients have the advantage of letting you view your feeds from anywhere you have an Internet connection and Web browser.
How do I add a feed to my client?
The exact procedure depends on the capabilities of your RSS reader software, but follows the same basic steps:
1. Using your Web browser, go to the site of the organisation you want to follow
and look for the icon.
2. Right-click the icon and click Copy Shortcut (Internet Explorer) or Copy Link
Location (Firefox), or the equivalent for your browser.
3. Start your RSS reader software.
4. Look for the button, link, or menu that says 'Add a Feed' or similar.
5. Paste in the URL you copied in step 2.
6. Click OK or Add to add the feed.
7. The feed should now be added to your list of feeds.next page
