Get the Shots News on our RSS Feed

What is RSS?

In a world heaving under the weight of billions of web pages, keeping up to date with the information you want can be a drag.

Wouldn't it be better to have the latest news and features delivered directly to you, rather than clicking from site to site? Well now you can, thanks to a very clever service, RSS.

RSS stands for 'Really Simple Syndication'. It allows you to identify the content you like and have it delivered directly to you. It takes the hassle out of staying up-to-date, by showing you the very latest information that you are interested in.

How do I start using RSS feeds?

The first thing you need is something called a news reader. They are included in Windows Vista, Windows 7 and most modern browsers. Even Outlook can be used. There are also news readers you can download and install.

Once you have chosen your news reader, all you have to do is add the RSS feed. In Internet Explorer 8 you will see a little RSS icon turn orange when a feed is present or just visit the main news page and click on the Orange RSS button.

If you click on the button you can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including dragging the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.
