    This is an explanation of an RSS feed. You can add them to your page.

    Basically it means you can get updated info added automatically to your pages.

    How do I add an RSS feed? Is it a copy and paste thing?

      There is an RSS capsule you can add, just like the text, photo etc capsules. Add one and enter a URL to whichever RSS feed you want and it will update as the feed is updated.

    Where's the best place to find RSS feeds. I spend a lot of time searching, and never really use them as I give up before I find decent ones. Any tips on finding good RSS feeds?

    It rather depends on the subject you are looking for. Try... "whatever subject I want + RSS," in the google search. I am sure you will find something you like.

    Mark, that's what I've been doing. And, lately, it seems that I have to sift through several pages before finding something. I tend to get a lot of websites that seem like they'd be perfect, but there's no RSS button on the page. As the search engines will pull up "RSS" or "feed" in some other context.

    I agree. Unfortunately, you could say the same about almost anything you search for on the internet. big_smile

    I have found reuters to be a good source of rss feeds on a reasonable range of subjects:

    Very cool. Thanks Mark. I'll have to try that site out next time I'm in need of a feed. :-)

    I've been using rss feeds to help keep my sites updated with fresh info.

      Yeah, that's the idea I think.
