News feed from Maghery.com
What is a News feed?
News feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content. You can get the latest news and results in one place, as
soon as its published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.
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
How do I start using feeds?
In general, the first thing you need is something called a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks the feeds
and lets you read any new articles that have been added. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed
using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications.
Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable
applications let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your e-mail using Outlook,
or keep it on a web-based service like Hotmail.
Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to is set it up to receive the feed from Maghery.com. From every
page on Maghery.com you will notice an orange button on the left hand side - click on this button.
If you click on the RSS button you can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including by dragging the URL of the feed
into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader. Most sites that offer
feeds use a similar orange button.
How do I get a news reader?
There is a range of different news readers available and new versions are appearing all the time.
Different news readers work on different operating systems, so you will need to choose one that will work with your computer.
