RSS (Really Simple Syndication) help

What is RSS?

VAC's RSS feed allows you to read through the news you want, at your convenience.

By using the RSS reader of your choice or building the feed into your blog (or online personal journal), you can access the latest VAC news in your favourite environment.

Why use RSS?

  • RSS allows you to select the type of news and information you get from Web sites.
  • Once you download your news reader, you can customize it to go and fetch the news every five minutes, or every hour – it's your choice.
  • Because you don't have to subscribe to e-mail lists you have less risk of getting unsolicited (spam) e-mail.

How do I use RSS feeds?

To view RSS feeds on your computer, you will usually need to get an RSS Reader or an RSS Web module. To add the VAC RSS feed, click on the orange button, copy the URL (site address) and paste it into your application. It's simple!

Another way to view RSS feeds is to use a Web-based news reader.

How do I get a news reader?

There are many news readers available on the Web. Some can be downloaded for free; other programs cost money because they are more complex. Some readers will work better on different operating systems. You should think about these things when you choose your software.

More detailed instructions are included in the news reader software that you choose. When new items are added to the VAC Media Room, you will be alerted through a small pop-up window or other alert device.
