Using RSS
  • What is RSS?
  • Allows a browser or other internet application to
    view updated news articles or updated pages. An
    xml document helps to update a program on newer
    articles.

Using RSS
Access the File menu in the upper left, and
access the New and then the Account option
under that. The Account Wizard window pops up
with a title of New Account Setup. Select the
RSS News Blogs button and click Next
19
Using RSS
The next window pops up with a title of Account
Name. Change the account name if you wish.
(News Blogs by default). Click the Next
button at the bottom of the window.

The next window pops up with Congratulations
for the title. Select the Finish button at
this window.
21
Using RSS
The account is placed under the list on the left
frame of Thunderbird. The main frame changes
with a title of Thunderbird Mail News Blogs.
Click the Manage subscriptions link.
22
Using RSS
The new window pops up with RSS Subscriptions
title. Click the Add button in the lower left.
23
Using RSS
Another new window, titled Feed Properties pops
up.
Open an Internet browser and access a site with
RSS enabled. Typically news sites that have
articles posted somewhat often will have RSS
available. Ex digg.com..baltimoresun.com/sports
.news.yahoo.com. Open up a site, such as
www.baltimoresun.com/sports/
24
Using RSS
Note the upper left corner, next to the address
is the orange icon. This means the site is RSS
enabled. Also below on the page you may see the
same icon or a slightly different icon, still in
orange, with XML on it. Other sites will just
place a regularly colored link with RSS. Copy
the link location by right-clicking the link off
the webpage. It should end with an ".xml or
.rss.
Take this link and place it in the Feed
Properties window.
25
Using RSS
Click the X button in the upper right corner of
the RSS Subscriptions window.
26
Using RSS
Select the new subscription below the News
Blogs section. A list of articles will appear
in the upper right frame. Selecting an article
will produce the webpage.
27
Using RSS
This shows what a summary may look like. It will
depend on what summary  the website has posted
some may include more information and possibly a
picture in an article summary.
