What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a powerful tool which allows readers to keep up-to-date on breaking news and information from a web site. With RSS, you get news delivered right to your desktop or mobile device.
As defined by Wikipedia, RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is "a group of XML based web-content distribution and republication (Web syndication) formats primarily used by news sites and weblogs (blogs)." An RSS service (also known as an RSS channel or feed) consists of a list of items, each of which contains a headline, description, and a link to a web page. The redcross.ca RSS service makes the full content, such as a full-text article, available on www.redcross.ca. This content can also be accessed by the link in the RSS service.
How do I use the redcross.ca RSS?
You can use an RSS news reader or email aggregator that will allow you to display RSS feeds. News readers allow you to view the RSS service and keep on top of new content appearing soon after it is published.
Step 1 – To get started, you'll need to download and install a free RSS news reader client. Many are available (some as browser extensions).
Step 2 – Set up and install your news reader according to the news reader instructions.
Step 3 – At redcross.ca, right click your mouse and copy the web address to your clipboard from the RSS Feed Box
Step 4 – Paste this web address where asked by your news reader.
