29/03/2005 - About RSS now has the facility to syndicate news and pr via a system called RSS.

What is RSS?
(which originally stood for "Rich Site Summary", but later became known as "Really Simple Syndication") is a way for sites to make content, such as news articles, available by another means.

What is it used for?
RSS feeds are used by many sites (such as FactoryEquipment, BBC news, Yahoo News) to publish a variety of content - for example a summary of their latest news. These summaries can be subscribed to and viewed like bookmarks in a web browser or like email in an email client (in, for example, Mozilla Thunderbird). They can also be viewed in a special reader designed just for managing and reading RSS subscriptions.

Links to RSS feeds can be found wherever the icon is located in the News Rooms or on the site in general. (For example, the RSS icon next to "Daily News" is the feed for subscribing to the Daily News. As well as feeds for individual PR sections, such as Product Focus or Daily News, there is a feed for "Editorial" in general, which comprises of News, PR, Foreman's Yell items and Spotlight features.

Feeds can also be subscribed to by area of interest - for example items relating to Bar Coding & Labelling or Instrumentation & Control.

So how do I subscribe?

In order to use RSS news feeds, you need a reader. There are many different readers available, some which "plug in" to your web browser and others which are standalone applications (like a web browser or email client such as Outlook Express or Thunderbird).

There are links to the right to a selection of readers (Please note, is not responsible for the contents of external links or software contained therein.)

You can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including by dragging the URL of the RSS feed (indicated by the icon) into your news reader or by copying and pasting the URL into a new feed in your news reader.
Some browsers / readers can automatically pick up the RSS feeds for you when you click on them. For more information check the help / instructions for your reader software.
