RSS is short for:
Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS:
RSS-aware programs called news aggregators are popular in the weblogging community. Many weblogs make content available in RSS.
News aggregators collect news, weblog and other feeds over the web and Aggregate them so the news items are readable from a single place, regardless of their source.
To find feeds to subscribe to, look for a white on orange XML (or RSS) icon on web sites. You could also use a centralized syndication service, such as Syndic8.com.
Bookmarks->Manage Bookmarks.In the Manage Bookmarks window go to
File->New Live Bookmark.Here you can enter/edit the content.
A short cut to this is a "Live Bookmark Icon" in the "tray" of the browser window (on my systems it looks like a simple thunderbolt (like a "Z") in a yellow box. If there is a RSS feed for the website displayed the Icon will be active and clicking it will automagicly add the Live Bookmark. The RSS feed will then appear in your bookmark menu (ususally as a sub-menu).
Tools->Extensionsand click on "Get More Extensions" to install.
To add a site click on the magnifying glass.
Added this link to main page (in navigation bar at top of page):
Also added this bit of code the the <header> section of the page:<a href="mlcug_rss.xml"> RSS </a>
This insured the page would be found by the Smart Bookmark feature in Mozilla/Firfox? (Found this tidbit somewhere on the net.)<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Mlcug RSS" href="mlcug_rss.xml">
Then added the file mlcug_rss.xml to the site.
Content for the RSS feed includes the meeting announcements and the recordings. As a result the xml file is fairly simple. An open source program called ListGarden (Linux, Mac, and Windows) is used to edit and update the xml file.
After the recordings are processed for download he puts them on the Comcast server and tells me what the URLs (links) are. I then add that info the the main web page (format to change after we have a few more recordings). Then I fire up ListGarden and add the entries to the xml file so they show up in an RSS Reader.
