What is RSS ?

Keeping up to date with the information you want can take time and effort.
One way to save time is to have the latest news, features, articles (your choice) from specified sources delivered directly to you - rather than you having to clicking from site to site each time you would like to receive the latest information.

RSS is a new way do receive information you have selected - easily and automatically.
In case you're curious, there is some discussion as to what RSS stands for, but the majority plump for 'Really Simple Syndication'.

Not all websites currently provide RSS, but it is growing rapidly in popularity and many websites, including the BBC, Guardian, New York Times, CNN, and IvyRose do provide it.

How do I use RSS ?

In general, the first thing you need is something called a news reader. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications. All allow you to display and subscribe to the RSS feeds you want.

Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want.
For example, if you would like the latest IvyRose Health News, simply visit the any IvyRose News page and you will notice an orange RSS button on the left hand side.

It looks like this: Example of apperance of RSS button

If you click on the RSS button on one of the News Pages (illustrated above) you can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including by dragging the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting 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.

How to get a News Reader:

There is a range of different news readers available and new versions are appearing all the time.

Different news readers work on different operating systems, so you will need to take this into account when you make your choice.

If you do not yet have a news reader, or you would like to research some alternatives one way to do this is to select from the menu opposite.
