What is RSS?
RSS, which is an acronym that stands for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary, allows users to keep updated on frequently changing content. RSS employs an XML-based structure that includes a title, date, brief description, and a link to the full text of content. RSS can be used to automatically deliver lists, or feeds, of noteworthy content and descriptive information to users who subscribe to a feed. Feeds can be read through a program called a news reader or aggregator.
How can I receive RSS feeds from OMG?
To begin receiving RSS feeds from OMG, you must first download and install a news reader or news aggregator that translates RSS code into a format that is easily under stood by users. Most browsers do not render RSS, instead they display the RSS code.
How do I subscribe to a feed?
Once you have downloaded and installed your news reader, the next step is to subscribe to a feed. Different news aggregators provide varying methods for subscribing to feeds, but the following instructions typically work for most readers.
- Click on "XML" button, or the accompanying link. Most browsers will display the XML source code.
The URL of the feed will be displayed in your browser's address bar.
- Copy the URL.
- Copy the URL into the "Add New Feed" portion of your news reader. The feed should now show up in your news reader.
Your news reader is now configured to automatically display new updates to the feed.
