Help With Adding An RSS Feed
RSS is an Internet format that gives you a new way to quickly and easily access Web-based headlines, blurbs, and article links from a wide variety of sources. It's most often used for showing the latest headlines from online newspapers, magazines, weblogs, and vendor and technology information sites. For more information about RSS and how to get started with it, please read InternetWeek's Getting Started With RSS, by TechWeb Pipelines Features Editor, Valerie Potter.

Using Automatic Discovery
To access an RSS feed, you need a software program known as a news aggregator, news reader, or RSS reader. If you already have an RSS reader and it supports auto-discovery, and the Web site whose RSS feed you want to subscribe to supports auto-discovery, saving the feed is usually as easy as loading the site's home page in your RSS reader. (All Pipeline sites offer auto-discovery.) Your RSS reader will then display feed-available icon that you can click to subscribe to the feed.

Not all RSS readers are programs; some are free Web-site services, like BlogLines, NewsGator, or My Yahoo. Most of these services do not support auto-discovery. You may see buttons on Web sites that make subscribing RSS feeds to those services much easier.

Adding An RSS Link Manually
When auto-discovery doesn't work, the manual process is easy enough:

1. Copy the RSS feed link from the content site. For many people, this is the most confusing step. If you see an RSS icon like this Right-click and choose Copy to extract RSS Feed URL, and you're using Internet Explorer in Windows, you can right-click this button and choose Copy Shortcut to copy the RSS link. Another option is to left click the link and copy the URL from your browser's Address bar. You'll often see unintellgible code in your browser window when you just click an RSS link. This is the XML stream, which is not intended to be interpreted by most browsers. (New plug-ins available for some Web browsers will make this possible, however.)

2. Open your news aggregation tool, initiate a new channel, and paste the RSS link into the URL field. After a few seconds, the feed will populate in your RSS reader. The process of initiating a new channel goes by different names in different news aggregators. It might also be called "adding a new feed." If necessary, consult your news aggregator's Help or documentation for more information.


Where To Get An RSS Reader
RSS readers, also called news aggregators, are available in several varieties. They can be Web-based services, standalone client software, or plug-ins for existing Web browsers or email packages.

Most of the Pipeline editors are using FeedDemon by Bradbury Software (recently purchased by NewsGator). It was written by Nick Bradbury, author of HomeSite and TopStyle, two popular Web development tools. Here's a short list of RSS readers you might like to try:

  • FeedDemon — A full-featured Windows news aggregator.
  • NewsGator — A plug-in for Outlook 2000 and newer.
  • Bloglines — A free Web-based aggregator.
  • NetNewsWire — A popular Mac RSS reader.
  • NewsMonster — A Mozilla browser plug-in supports Linux and Windows.
  • Google Search: News Aggregators.


    What Exactly Is RSS?
    Most sources define RSS as an acronym standing for Really Simple Syndication; other sources say the acronym derives from Rich Site Summary or RDF Site Summary. In fact, all may be correct.

    Whatever the letters stand for, RSS is a light-weight XML format for distributing headlines, links, and brief descriptions of Web-based content. Web content providers develop and serve RSS "feeds," or streams of headline content designed to be accessed by news aggregator or RSS reader client software. An RSS reader lets you peruse headlines, read summaries, and the click links to specific stories to open them right on their original Web sites in your default Web browser.
