This page tells you how to receive automatic updates when new stories are posted in our Latest News section.
RSS news feeds send you alerts when webpages have been updated, without you having to visit the website itself.
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.
To use these feeds, you need to use a special piece of software called an RSS reader (see below). These are programmers that automatically check selected websites for updated items, such as news headlines or podcasts.
How do I use RSS feeds?
If you don't already have one, first you will need an RSS reader. There are many RSS reader programmes available, including the ones listed below (links available on the right of this page):
- Web: Bloglines
- Mac OS X: NetNewsWire
- Windows: SharpReader
- Linux: Liferea
Once you have a news reader you can begin subscribing to our news feed by looking for orange RSS buttons. You can click on the button to view an RSS feed directly, or drag the button or URL of the feed onto an area of the reader to subscribe.
