How to Read and Subscribe to RSS Feeds
Before you begin subscribing to APU’s RSS feeds, you need a place to read the subscriptions. Subscribers have several options for reading news:
- A customizable personal site, such as my.yahoo.com or Google Reader.
- A desktop RSS news reader or aggregator, available for both Windows (SharpReader) and Macintosh (NetNewsWire Lite), or web-based (Bloglines.com).
- An RSS browser plug-in, such as Pluck for Internet Explorer and Firefox.
- An RSS-enabled browser, such as Safari.
Which application you use to read RSS feeds is up to you, and you can use more than one.
Once you have selected and set up your personal site, news reader, or an RSS-enabled browser, you can subscribe to any APU RSS feed in a number of ways.
- On the RSS listing page, drag the orange RSS button for the item you’re interested in into your news reader.
- On the RSS listings page, drag the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader.
- On the RSS listings, cut and paste the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader.
