What is RSS?RSS (Really Simple Syndication) provides news feeds allowing you to see when websites have added new content. You don't need to visit the website, the news comes straight to you as soon as it is published.
How do I start using RSS feeds?You will need a piece of software called a news reader or aggregator. There are plenty available for free to download if you search the Web, or your browser may be configurable to include RSS. If you are downloading one, please ensure it is suitable to your operating system. The reader checks your chosen websites for any updates, and provides summaries and links to more information.
Once you have your reader, you need to supply it with specific feed. For example, on the home page of this site there will be an orange RSS icon sat beneath the main banner.
If you click on the RSS button you can subscribe to this RSS feed in a number of ways, including the following:
Some browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, automatically check for feeds for you when you visit a website, and display an icon when they find one. This can make subscribing to feeds much easier. For more details on these, please check their websites.
Please be aware that the RSS feed from this site will include feeds from all Doublestruck sites, including QKit (CIE), Testbase (QCA), Exampro (AQA), ExamWizard (Edexcel) and ExamQuest (OCR).
