RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.


Basically it's like news feeds for your favorite web sites, but without actually having to go visit them. Using a "news reader" you "subscribe" to a bunch of sites, and then when new content is published/posted you'll see the updates in the news reader. Many people who blog and read others blogs use them to check for updates. It's a lot easier to check one program than it is to open 10, 20, 30+ web sites.


I like to use bloglines.com as my news reader. This way no matter what computer I'm at I can check my rss feeds. Plus it's free and has many of the same features of some of the locally installed programs that I have used in the past.


Here is a description I found on the web in case that made no sense what-so-ever:

RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the "recent changes" page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.


RSS-aware programs called news aggregators are popular in the weblogging community. Many weblogs make content available in RSS. A news aggregator can help you keep up with all your favorite weblogs by checking their RSS feeds and displaying new items from each of them.


With all that said... I find message boards hard to follow in an RSS feed, but if you were just limited to Amber Alert forum then that would be beneficial to get the updates quickly. A seperate feed for each forum may not be bad either, but at that point you might as well just visit the site. ;)

Having an RSS feed for the Amber Alerts is a good idea. You would probably want to establish a standard format for the topic title so that the critical information (like city and state) would be in the feed item title, for those RSS readers that only initially display the item title.


Jeff, does the forum software/system already provide you with the tools you need to make the feed, or are you going to have to build/acquire an additional tool to do this?

I understand why you wouldnt want to do it for all the forums but I wouldnt mind seeing it for them....Maybe the RSS would filter out just the "today" posts so that you only see the new ones... I cant wait to be your beta tester!
