What is RSS?
RSS technology allows you to feed news from our web site direct to your browser. You might want to do this to keep in touch with our latest events or because you wish to follow the progress of our exciting Development plan. This is a first attempt at adding RSS to the web site.
Below you can see the content of our RSS feed as currently constituted. This will develop as we get used to the technology!
This is what the feed currently contains:
How to set up RSS on your browser
If you are using Internet Explorer 7 or Mozilla Firefox you should see a little symbol at the bottom right of the window. Click on this and you will be subscribed to the service!
Manual setting up of RSS using Mozilla Firefox
Firefox is an excellent internet browser that has the advantage of being independent of Microsoft. It is easy to set up RSS feeds.
Go to the Bookmarks menu and select 'Manage Bookmarks'. Under the 'File Menu', select 'New Livemark'. Create a name for the Live Bookmark and add the URL: http://www.thegarret.org.uk/rss/rssfeed.xml. New articles from our site will appear as Live Bookmarks in Firefox. Click here for Firefox Help .
Manual setting up of RSS using Internet Explorer
Is of course slightly more difficult than using Firefox! But simple enough if you download a newsreader of which many free examples exist. To find out more click here.
