RSS Feed Information
RSS , also known as Really Simple Syndication, is a web feed format used to publish updated information on a website. By using an RSS feed, website publishers can automatically syndicate content directly from their website without using a secondary program or software package. To receive RSS feeds, users need a Feed Reader such as Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer's built-in reader or Google Reader.
How to subscribe to a feed
The steps to subscribing to an RSS Feed will vary depending on your web browser and web reader.
Visit the page to which you want to subscribe, such as the News Releases page. Click the " Subscribe to the RSS Feed for this page!" link at the top of the page. The following pages have RSS Feeds:
- News Releases
- Crime Releases
- Job Openings
- Adult Sports
- Leisure Programs
- Youth Sports
- Recreation Events
If you use Firefox as you browser, you will automatically receive an option to pick the application you want to use to read the feed. Select Microsoft Outlook or browse to your RSS Reader.
If you use Internet Explorer 7/8 as you browser, you will automatically receive an option to subscribe to the Feed via Explorer's built-in reader. Explorer's Feed reader can be accesses through the Tools menu > Explorer Bars > Feeds.
If you use Google Chrome, you will need to install Google's RSS Subscription Extension (by Google) to view the RSS Feed in Chrome.
