What are news feeds?
Our range of ICAEW news feeds allow you to access all the latest news and updates from ICAEW's site in one place as soon as they are published.
News feeds and Really Simple Syndication (RSS)
Feeds are also known as RSS. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It is the most effective and easy way to stay up-to-date with the information that is important to you. RSS eliminates the need to continually visit a website for updates. Using RSS, new web content is delivered directly to you the moment it is published. You can also receive Podcasts, images and video content through RSS.
How do I use RSS?
To use RSS you will need a News Reader, also called an ‘aggregator’. This will allow you to subscribe to the RSS feed from your chosen websites. Your RSS feeds will flow directly into your News Reader, making the information you need available in one central and convenient location. When reading your RSS feeds, you always have the option of clicking through to the original website.
If you do not have an RSS Reader you will need to download one. There are a variety of readers to choose from;
RSS news readers
Web based readers
Subscribing to RSS feeds
Inside your reader you will see a button that says ‘subscribe,’ ‘add feed’ or something similar. There will be a box for you to input a URL. Many News Readers will allow you to simply enter the main URL of the website. However, certain News Readers will ask for the URL of the website’s RSS feed. To find the RSS feed’s URL simply look for the RSS button on the website’s homepage (usually an orange button) and click on it, then copy and paste the URL into your News Reader. Once you have entered the URL into your News Reader you are subscribed to that website’s RSS feed and you will begin to receive updates immediately.
