Homecoming Scotland 2009 RSS Feeds

What is RSS? 

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) allows you to get the latest new content added to websites as a feed on your computer as soon as it is published.  There is no need for you to check the site if you have taken the feed for new content.

How do I start using RSS feeds?

Firstly you need a reader which is software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new content that has been added to a particular site. There are many different readers available.  Some are accessed using a web browser and some are downloadable applications. Browser-based readers allow you to access your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer but those that are downloadable applications let you store them on the computer the application is on. Think of this as similar to the choice of whether to download your e-mail using Outlook, or keep it on a web-based service like Hotmail.

When you have chosen which reader you wish to use, you just have to decide what content you want it to receive e.g. if you would like the latest Homecoming Scotland 2009 event information or news stories. 

Some web browsers (e.g. Firefox, Opera and Safari) check for feeds for you automatically when you visit a website and will display an icon if they find one. Making subscribing to feeds much easier.

To subscribe to Homecoming Scotland feeds using your own news reader use the following links:
