What is RSS?

How would you like to have the latest DIVE news and features delivered directly to you, rather than surfing for it?

Now you can with 'Really Simple Syndication' (RSS).

RSS allows you to identify the news that interests you and have it delivered directly. All the latest news delivered to you as it breaks.

Several websites currently provide RSS including The BBC, The Guardian and CNN, and it is growing all the time.

How do I use RSS feeds?

First you need to choose a news reader. Many different versions can be accessed by using a browser or from downloadable applications. All allow you to display and subscribe to RSS feeds.

Once you have set up a news reader, all you have to do visit a website that provides an RSS feed, then click on the RSS button.

When you click on the button you can subscribe to the feed in various ways. You can drag the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader or cut and paste the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.

Some browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, have functionality which automatically picks up RSS feeds for you. For more details on these, please check their websites.

These news feeds have been utilised to create the ASADA news feeds page
