What is RSS?

There is some debate as to what RSS actually stands for, but the majority settle for 'Really Simple Syndication'. In plain English this means that news of the latest site content can delivered directly to you, the site user.

This saves time and hassle by removing the need to visit mwstewart to check for updates. Instead, details of these updates can be delivered to you automatically.

How do I use RSS on

RSS requires the use of a newsreader to function, and most browsers now have this built in.

If the article you are viewing has a dedicated RSS feed, then an RSS icon: [RSS Feed] will appear at the bottom of the article next to the Email Email Icon, Save Save Icon and Print Print Icon option buttons.

Click the RSS icon to be taken to the RSS feed page. The following icon: Firefox subscribe will appear in the bottom right hand corner of the browser. Simply click the icon and select Subscribe to 'Current Feed', choose a place to store the new bookmark, and from then on any updates to the site will automatically appear within the bookmark (even if you are not browsing this site). Try it!

My Browser doesn't have a 'Subscribe' option. Where can I get an RSS newsreader?
