How does RSS work?

To use RSS, you will need a special RSS news reader or aggregator that will allow you to collect and display RSS "feeds." You may download a news reader (many are free) or use a newsreader that allows you to add your feeds directly to a webpage - no download required.

How do I subscribe?

To subscribe to a feed, you have to tell your RSS reader where to find it. Follow these two steps:

1. Determine the location, or URL, for the feed. Right-click (or press CTRL while clicking on some computers) on the RSS link beside a topic. Select "Copy Link Location," "Copy Link" or "Copy Shortcut" (whichever choice shows up) to copy the address of the feed.

2. Open your news reader and paste the feed's address into the reader as it directs you.
