What is RSS?
RSS is an easy way for you to keep up-to-date with the latest news from your favourite websites without having to revisit them every time you want to know what's new.
RSS stands for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication.
Getting a news reader
To make use of an RSS feed, you need to download something called a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks RSS feeds and lets you read any articles that have been added to them.
There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser (software that allows you to visit websites such as Internet Explorer, Safari and Firefox), and some of which are downloadable applications.
Using our RSS feeds
Once you've chosen your news reader, you can then 'subscribe' to our RSS feeds by:
- choosing which 'issue room' you would like to receive updates on: www.childrenscommissioner.gov.uk/issue_rooms
- clicking on the 'Open RSS feed' link which you'll find in the RSS box
- entering the web address of the RSS feed into your news reader.
