Using the RSS Feature
Posted by on 12 April 2011 11:02 AM

RSS (formally "RDF" and known also as "Really Simple Syndication") is a set of  Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog  entries, news headlines or podcasts. An RSS document, which is called a "feed", contains either a summary of content from an associated web  site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with your  web site in an automated manner that's easier than checking it manually.

RSS content can be read using software called an RSS reader. The user subscribes to a feed by entering the feed's link into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a browser that initiates the subscription process. The reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new content, downloading any updates that it  finds. Internet Explorer users view feeds on the Feeds tab in the Favorites Center. To view your  feeds, click the Favorites Center button, and then click Feeds. Internet Explorer also provides the Common Feed List to other programs. This allows you to subscribe to feeds with Internet Explorer and read them in other programs, such as e-mail clients.

Like a newsletter, the RSS feature is a great way to keep in contact with visitors, keep them up-to-date, and get them to return to your  website. If you use the News or Blog  modules, encourage visitors to use the RSS feature.

Within the NE1 web builder, the RSS module can be configured using the "Add-On Modules" tab at the top of the webmaster page. By clicking the "Add New RSS Chanel" button, you are free to add as many RSS feeds as you like. The feeds can then be inserted on any page in the same manner as any module is inserted.
