What are Feeds?
Feeds, RSS, or Really Simple Syndication, is an easy way for you have news, information and web logs (blogs), from many different websites. Feeds are automatically delivered to you via software called a news/feed reader or aggregator. This allows you to read the content from these different sites without having to visit them individually -- the content comes to you.
How to Access Feeds
Select a Feed Reader
The first thing you need to do is select a feed reader. Feed readers come in a variety of forms. There are web based readers and can be accessed via your browser, desktop based and require that you download and install a program onto your computer, integrated readers which may be added on to certain internet software or as part of the standard program.
Once you select your reader, subscribing to RSS feeds is easy. Most times you can add a feed to your reader by copying the suscribe link URL (internet address) into your reader. This is how you can subscrbe to the Picton Castle Captain's Log and Crew Journals. On other sites you may see orange buttons that are labelled RSS or XML that you can click to subscribe. Sometimes the method you use to subscribe will depend on your reader. You should read the documentation for your reader to get more specific information for adding new feeds.
