RSS feeds explained

The Newham Partnership Working website provides web feeds that allow you to see when websites have added new content. Instead of you having to browse the websites to see if there is a new update, you can use RSS to get them to tell you as soon as the information is published.

RSS in general allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. It also saves you time by not needing to visit each site individually. RSS feeds can be sorted out by date, title or category.

What is an RSS feed and how can you tell if there is one?

RSS, or 'Really Simple Syndication' is an easy way for you to keep updated automatically on information you like. Websites offering RSS feeds typically carry a small orange buttons, or an icon often labelled 'RSS' or 'XML'. They can be read by RSS readers or aggregators.

How do you get a RSS Reader?

There is a range of different RSS Readers available (free or paid) and different readers work on different operating systems. Some are accessed using a web browser, and others are downloadable applications, so you will need to take this into account when making a choice.

How do you use RSS?

Navigate to the page of interest check if it has an RSS feed and click on the link. You can get the URL for the feed by clicking on the orange RSSbutton next to the feed name or in the Browser.

Alternatively search for RSS feeds through your Reader software. One common way is to copy and paste the URL for the feed into your Feed Reader.
