What's an RSS Feed?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication" It's an XML-based format for distributing and aggregating web content such as news headlines. Most major news publications such as CNN, BBC and Rueters provide RSS Feeds. The availability of an RSS Feed is usually indicated by an graphic. You've probably noticed this graphic on many websites you've visited.

How do I use RSS Feeds?

Using RSS Feeds is a convenient way to get all your City news and events from one place. Instead of going to multiple websites, you can create your own personal collection of news and events using RSS. Your feeds will be updated automatically each time a new item is published.

To create your own collection of news and events, you'll need an application that can read and display RSS Feeds. Tools you use every day such as browsers and portals will do this. There are also "news reader" or "news aggregator" programs (many of which are free) that have an e-mail-like interface and are easy to use.

News reader applications all work slightly different, but in general to add an RSS Feed, do the following:

  1. Click on the graphic. You will see XML (or eXtensible Markup Language) code in your browser. This is to be expected, since you are not meant to view the raw RSS Feed in a browser window.
  2. Copy the URL.
  3. Paste the URL into the "Add News Feed" option of the application you are using.
Below are applications which you can use:

The MyYahoo and MyMSN portals also support RSS Feeds.

FireFox 1.0: Use "Manage Bookmarks" from the tool bar to add RSS Feeds or click on the at the bottom right corner of your browser (Note: Not all RSS Feeds will support this feature).
