RSS feeds

What are RSS news feeds?

News feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content. You can get the latest headlines as soon as they are published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.

Feeds are also known as RSS - Really Simple Syndication.

How do I start using feeds?

The first thing you need is a news reader - a piece of software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added. There are many different versions: browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer.

Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want it to receive. The RSS feeds available from the GMC website are listed below.

You can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including by dragging the URL of the feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.
