Previous RSS subscribers need to update code
By Beth McGuire
RISMEDIA, Jan. 15, 2007-In conjunction with RISMedia's new Web site launch, the company also has announced it now offers both a new RSS feed as well as a java script code, for readers who want to have the real estate news leader's daily headlines appear on their home page.
Readers who previously had entered the former site's java script code (prior to Dec. 20, 2006) and who want to continue displaying RISMedia's news on their Web site, must update their site with RISMedia's new code. To do this, delete the old java script from the html of your Web page. Enter the information requested here http://rismedia.com/news-feed.php and copy the new code into the html of your Web page.
If you are unsure how to do this, consult the company that hosts your site or your company's IT professional.
New RSS Feed
To add RISMedia to your RSS feed, enter the information requested here http://rismedia.com/news-feed.php and copy the link displayed into your RSS reader.
If you don't have an RSS reader, there are many free downloads available such as FeedReader.com, NewsGator.com, RSSReader.com and Google.com/reader.
What is an RSS Feed?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a format for sharing Web-based content through automatically updated links. Sites like RISMedia.com can provide public RSS feeds that include articles, industry related news. Subscribers to these feeds use software to include this information on their own Web sites, or to read the information directly.
The RSS feed is an xml encoded document. Users of RSS content use programs called feed 'readers' or 'aggregators': the user 'subscribes' to our feed by supplying the link above to the feed reader. The reader can then check the RISMedia feed and other feeds you wish to subscribe and see if any of those feeds have new content since the last time it checked, and if so, retrieve that content in a nicely formatted manner.
RSS-aware programs are available for various operating systems. Client-side readers and aggregators are typically constructed as standalone programs or extensions to existing programs such as Web browsers and E-mail readers. Many browsers have integrated support for RSS feeds. There also are other applications that can convert an RSS feed into several usenet articles, viewable through the major newsreader software such as Mozilla Thunderbird
