Subscribe to RSS Feeds Tutorial Transcript:
Welcome to the tutorial on how to subscribe
to an RSS Feed.
Before you can subscribe to an RSS feed,
you must first have an RSS Reader.
For more information on how to select an
RSS Reader, please watch the tutorial for
Selecting an RSS Reader on our website,
After you have an RSS Reader, you can then
begin to subscribe to RSS Feeds. In this
tutorial, I'm going to be using the Firefox
RSS Reader and my personal favorite, Snarfer.
Before we begin, there are many different
ways to subscribe to an RSS Feed.
I'm going to be showing you two of them.
To subscribe to an RSS Feed in a browser
based RSS Reader, you first have to find
For example, I'm going to browse to our
website, www.feedforall.com In your browser,
look for the RSS icon.
In FireFox version 3, the icon is in the
address line on the right hand side. When
you left click on that icon, you'll see
all of the feeds we have available.
Currently in the list are Subscribe to RSS
Software and Scripts, Subscribe to RSS Knowledgebase,
and Subscribe to FeedForAll News.
If you click on any one of them, it may
take the website a few second to respond,
but you should see a screen very similar
to this show up.
Once in the screen, you have several options.
You can look at the feed as it is without
subscribing to it or you can select your
method of subscription.
If you click on the dropdown list, you can
select Live bookmarks to have Firefox's
feed reader subscribe to the feed or you
can select an application of your choosing.
For this part of the tutorial, select Live
Left click on Subscribe Now. Firefox will
then ask what you want to name the bookmark
and ask you which bookmark location to save
Select your preference, then left click
When you do, you can now go to your bookmark
toolbar or go to Bookmarks, Bookmarks Toolbar
and you'll see the feed you've just subscribed
Any time new content is posted to this feed,
you can find it here.
The other option is to subscribe to a feed
using an installed application.
Like I mentioned earlier, I'll be using
Snarfer as my installed application for
the purposes of this tutorial.
So, go back to your web browser, and go
to a site that has feeds.
Again, left click on the RSS icon, then
select one of the available feeds.
This time, click on the dropdown list and
select your installed RSS Reader.
In my case, I'm going to select Snarfer.
Then left click on Subscribe Now.
When you do, it should take you into your
RSS Reading program and auto-fill the Feed
Address for you.
Your Feed Reader should also give you the
option to select your preference on how
you would like the items from the feed displayed.
After subscribing to the feed, it should
then appear in your available feeds list
and show you a list of the items available
in the feed.
Each time you open your feed reader, it
will pull in all new items for the feed.
This concludes the tutorial on how to subscribe
to an RSS Feed. Please visit our website,
