Using RSS news feeds
What are RSS or News Feeds?
News feeds let you know when new content has been added to the website. You can get the latest news sent to you as soon as it's published so you don't have to login to the website. Each new item is linked back to the site.
These feeds are also called RSS feeds.
Feeds are also known as RSS. There is some discussion as to what RSS stands for, but most people plump for 'Really Simple Syndication'. In essence, the feeds themselves are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people.
How do I start using these feeds?
To use the news feeds you need a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks the sites you are subscribed to and lets you know when something new has been added. This software can be downloaded to your computer or be run over the internet as a browser-based news reader.
Using an online browser-based news reader means you can access the latest updates from any computer - in the same way you can access your email from anywhere using a web based or browser-based email program. The downloadable software version is again like your computer based email program eg Outlook or Entourage and means you can access the latest news from your computer and can also store the information on your own PC. Once you have an RSS or news feed reader you can subscribe to parts of our site and receive the latest updates.
On LuvMyBoat you can subscribe to a news feed or update by clicking on the small RSS icon, or that are usually found in the page or tab heading. Most browsers recognize a page with RSS or news Feeds and will display the icon to the right of the URL or web address in the navigation bar at the top of your browser.
Where do I get a news reader?
It is important that you use a news reader that works with the operating system of your PC - Windows, Mac or Linux based.
You can find out more about news readers by searching online under this topic - make sure you check that the software will work on your computer. Most RSS or news readers are free.
