Really Simple Syndication (RSS)
What is RSS and how can I use it to get the latest news releases from
Department of Health Services?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a way to receive up-to-date
information from those websites that provide this technology. Department
of Health and Family Services will deliver the latest news releases using
this XML technology.
Using RSS will require that you have a "feed
reader". There are many available for download on the Internet
for little or no cost. Some of the newest web browsers include the ability
to read an RSS feed and to keep track of subscriptions. If your browser
does not automatically read RSS feeds, go to your favorite search engine
and type in, "RSS feed reader" to search for a reader.
When you have a "feed reader", subscribing to information
from our site is a simple as visiting our News Release page and looking
for the orange "RSS" button. When you click on either the
orange button or the "subscribe" link, you will see a page of code. Ignore this code and instead copy the URL for the page into
your feed reader. Now you will have access to the latest news releases
without needing to visit our site.
