For Beginners

• What is RSS?
RSS (Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication) is a popular way to collect content, such as news headlines, without requiring you to constantly visit a Web site to see latest updates. Typical RSS feeds contain headlines, a brief description and links to longer articles on the Web.

• Why Would You Use RSS?
Simply put: to save time and bandwidth.

Instead of remembering to come to Cal State Fullerton News, the news comes directly to you. CSUF RSS Headlines contains summaries of news and events at the university sent right at your virtual doorstep. [ view screen shot ]

What's more, because RSS feeds carry a small amount of data, it can be sent to any XML-compatible device such as cell phones, PDAs or Blackberry without a lengthy download process.

• How to Get Started
If you do not already have an RSS reader, please review the listing on the right side bar to get you started. There are many free or little cost RSS readers to choose from–many are downloadable software and some are free web-based readers which don't require download.

Try it! If you would like to test an RSS reader, we recommend you try a web-based reader such as My Yahoo! or CNet's NewsBurst to start.

Once you've obtained a feed reader, subscribing to an RSS feed is simple—just look for the appropriate XML code. Most Web sites that publish an RSS feed will display a tiny orange box or button labeled "RSS" or "XML."

Click the button and your Web browser typically goes to a page of cryptic code. Just copy the URL of that page and plug it into your feed reader. The software will then automatically retrieve and display that site's latest information.
