RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication," and is a popular way for websites to syndicate their content. Free Christian Content.org offers one RSS feed of it's own for new content listed on the site. By subscribing to an RSS feed, you can receive the content as soon as it's published, without the need to visit the website. RSS has several advantages over email. You don't have to provide your email address and you don't have to go through a complicated process to unsubscribe from a feed... you simply delete the feed. In short, RSS is safer and easier to manage than email.
The pages listed on this menu contain Christian RSS Feeds. You will need a Feed Reader to view the content of the feeds. Some email programs and web browsers can read RSS feeds or have plug-ins available. There are also programs called RSS readers that allow you to manage and read your RSS subscriptions. There are several free ones on the net. A simple one to use is FeedReader
. You simply download it, install it, click on the new feed button, and paste the RSS Feed URL into the "New Feed Wizard" window, click "Next", click "Finish" and your feed is set up and ready to use.
To get the URL of the feed: Firefox/Netscape
: right click on the XML icon and select "copy link location. Internet Explorer
: right click on the link or icon and select "Copy Shortcut".
