For those of us a little computer savvy - there's a RSS feed available for us to plug into our RSS readers.

Paste this URL into your reader:
http://xtranewscommunity2.smfforfree.com/index.php?type=rss;action=.xml

When used with IE8, this gives you the ability to see and view any new posts the moment they are posted and no matter what other sites you may be on at the time.



What is RSS?

RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.

Benefits and Reasons for using RSS

RSS solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. You ensure your privacy, by not needing to join each site's email newsletter. The number of sites offering RSS feeds is growing rapidly and includes big names like Yahoo News.


RSS Feed Readers and News Aggregators

Feed Reader or News Aggregator software allow you to grab the RSS feeds from various sites and display them for you to read and use.

A variety of RSS Readers are available for different platforms.
Some popular feed readers include

  • Amphetadesk (Windows, Linux, Mac),
  • FeedReader (Windows), and
  • NewsGator (Windows - integrates with Outlook).


There are also a number of web-based feed readers available. My Yahoo, Bloglines, and Google Reader are popular web-based feed readers.

Once you have your Feed Reader, it is a matter of finding sites that syndicate content and adding their RSS feed to the list of feeds your Feed Reader checks. Many sites display a small icon with the acronyms RSS, XML, or RDF to let you know a feed is available.

I thought about that but is not really necessary - the new ones show up on the main page.
Easy to follow.

Because this group is so brand new (even though it is simply a new home for an old community), everyone is obviously playing and posting heaps. Perhaps when the novelty wears off, the number of posts will decrease slightly.

BTW, the detailed group Stats currently show a grand total (as this is posted) of 779 message posted). There were only two posted prior to four days ago when the existance of this group was officially announced at the old group, resulting in people joining up and posting 777 messages in just over four days.

Not a bad total for only four days, methinks!!  Shocked  Grin
