What is an RSS feed?
RSS feeds make regularly-changing content available in a standard format that can be "fed" to your Web site, phone, feed reader, desktop widget, blog, twitter account, Facebook page, or e-mail address. Some feeds update on a regular interval (e.g. daily), others, whenever new content is available. Feeds are a great way to stay up to date. And once you place a feed on your Web site or desktop, it updates automatically. Here are links to some available feeds:
How do I use these feeds?
Find the feed address
If you don't see a link that specifically says "RSS feed" check the address bar of your browser, if the orange "RSS icon" appears in the bar, click that to find the address for the feed(s).
On your Web site or blog
- Use an rss "widget" native to your Web site or blog. Content management systems like Joomla!, Drupal, etc., and most blogging services, provide a way to enter an RSS feed link so the feed content can display, in at least headline form. Sometimes the entire feed article can appear.
On your desktop
For reading and tracking RSS feeds, Web browser-based feed readers (e.g. Google Reader
) have pretty much replaced the use of dedicated desktop reader software. If you use "gadgets" or "widgets" on your computer (e.g. a clock, current weather, etc.), you can configure a feed gadget to display dynamic content.
On your mobile device
If your phone or other mobile device has a way to connect to the Internet, chances are it has an RSS reader built-in. All you need to do is paste the feed address in the RSS reader application, and news headlines, daily bible verses and other content will be available wherever you go.
