What is RSS 2.0?

RSS or Really Simple Syndication is a useful tool for keeping updated on your favorite websites. RSS makes use of an XML code that constantly scans selected content of a website for updates and then broadcasts those updates to all subscribers through a feed.

RSS feeds are typically used with news sites or blogs, although any website can use them to disseminate information. When an update is sent out, it usually includes a headline and a small amount of text, either a summary or the lead-in to the larger story. You will need to click a link to read more.

How do I use RSS 2.0?

In order to receive RSS feeds, you must have an RSS feed reader. There are a number of RSS feed readers online, many of them free, so with a little bit of searching, you should be able to find an RSS feed reader that appeals to you. In addition to being available on your computer, RSS feeds can also be read on PDAs and mobile phones.

The Hawkinge Gazette and Channel Coast News RSS feeds can also be used on your website.

By either method, the feed will be available as soon as you’ve added it, and your next update will arrive as soon as any changes are made to the page you subscribed to. If you ever decide that you don’t want to receive updates anymore, you simply delete the feed or URL from your RSS feed reader.
