What is RSS?

RSS, or Really Simple Syndication, is a format for delivering the latest news or other information from a web site directly to anyone with an interest in that content. When you subscribe to an RSS feed, your RSS reader will alert you whenever new web content is available. The reader will send a headline and short text on the subject, and if you are interested, you can click to read the full story.

The HRO currently offers two RSS feeds for use in news readers: one for when a Floor Report is published during legislative sessions, and the other for all other HRO publications.

Requirements for Receiving RSS Feeds

There are a number of ways to access RSS feeds. You can install a news reader that displays RSS feeds from the web sites you select, enabling you to view hundreds of headlines at once. After installing the news reader, you can add each feed manually from the web site by copying the news feed address and pasting it into your reader. News readers provide an option to subscribe to a feed so you will automatically receive updates.

An alternative to downloading a dedicated news reader is to use a web-based news reader. Some newer browsers allow you to click on a news feed link to display the feeds. Many commercial content providers now allow users to add RSS feeds directly to their personal pages.

Here are the steps:


Choose a newsreader (aggregator) to organize and read your content.


After installing your RSS newsreader, click the link of the RSS Icon icon next to a set of links or headlines or from the list of categories on the right you wish to subscribe to.


Follow the prompts offered by your RSS newsreader to complete the subscription.


Use your RSS newsreader to read news when it arrives and click headline links to get the full web page.
