RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS is an easy way to receive updates and news from websites. You can get the latest headlines and articles (or even audio files, photographs or video) in one place, as soon as they are published, without having to remember to visit each site every day.
How to use RSS feeds
There is a range of different newsreaders available and new versions are appearing all the time. Different newsreaders work on different operating systems, so you will need to choose one that will work with your computer.
Once you have downloaded and installed a reader, follow its instructions for adding new channels.
City of Sydney RSS feeds, or channels, are available from the addresses listed above and can be read in a program called a newsreader or aggregator.
Try a quick search for "RSS newsreader" or visit the Google RSS directory.
Please make sure that your reader is configured to look for updates no more frequently than every 2 hours. These feeds update only once or twice a day, so looking for changes less frequently is recommended.
