We have recently added RSS (Really Simple Syndication) to our website to provide an easy way for you to keep updated automatically on the latest content added to our website.
Instead of you having to go to the What's New pages within the website to see what new content is available, you can use the RSS feed to tell you everytime there is something new.
News feeds, in essence, are web pages designed to be read by computers rather than people. They allow you to see when websites have added new content. You can get the latest headlines or updates in one place, as soon as they are published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.
The first thing you need is a news reader. This is a piece of software that automatically checks the feeds you have subscribed to and lets you read any new articles that have been added. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser and some of which are downloadable applications.
Once you have a news reader installed on your computer, if you click on the orange RSS button on a website, you can subscribe to the feed in various ways (see View our Feed below).
Some examples of news readers are:
We update our RSS feed as soon as new relevant information is posted on our website. As we update our site the feed is updated, and your feed reader will display the headlines with links to the full items.
You can view our web feed in your own Reader by dragging the URL of our feed (http://www.tiresias.org/rss.xml) into your news reader, or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed or subscribe box in your news reader.
Some browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, will automatically check for our feed when you visit our website, and display an icon when they find it.
Alternatively you can view our current feed at: http://feeds.feedburner.com/Tiresias.
