What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Sundication) is an XML-based format for sharing and distributing Web content, such as news headlines. Using an RSS reader like Feedreader, FeedDemon, Newz Crawler or RssReader, you can view data feeds from various sources, such as WVUsports.com, including headlines, game summaries, and links to full stories.

How do I access RSS?

RSS/News Aggregators (also called Readers) will download and display RSS feeds for you. A number of free and commercial News Aggregators are available for download and can be added to Internet Explorer or Microsoft Outlook.

Many aggregators are separate, "stand-alone" programs; other services will let you add RSS feeds to a Web page. Yahoo! users can add RSS feeds to your My Yahoo! page; to make this easier, you can click on the "Add to My Yahoo!" button to the right of each link above.

Another way many people use RSS feeds is by incorporating content into weblogs, or "blogs." Blogs are web pages comprised of usually short, frequently updated items and web links. Blogging as a publishing tool is used for many purposes: traditional journalism, personal journals, group discussions, etc.

If you are using the Firefox Web browser, support for Webfeeds is built in. If you are a Macintosh user, support for RSS is built into the version of Safari that shipped with Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).

How do I add your Webfeed to my aggregator?

Click on the button, copy the link in your browser and follow the instructions provided with your news aggregator.

How do I add your Webfeed to my browser?

Windows and Macintosh users: if you are using Firefox, look for the orange link in the lower right corner of the browser. Click on that and add the link to your bookmarks.
