What are RSS feeds?
RSS feeds help you stay up to date with new content added to websites. By subscribing to an RSS feed from a website, you will be alerted via your RSS feedreader or aggregator as soon as any new content is added to that site. To subscribe to an RSS feed you need a feed reader, a piece of software that checks RSS feeds and alerts you to any new content. For information about getting a feed reader and to learn more about RSS and how to subscribe, visit http://gethelp.library.upenn.edu/guides/engineering/alerts/whatisrss.html.
What kind of RSS feeds can I get from PennTags?
PennTags RSS feeds notify you when new posts have been added to the page you are monitoring. There are different feed options available. You can subscribe to a general PennTags feed that will notify you whenever a post is added. You can also subscribe to more focused feeds that will notify you of new posts containing a specific tag or tags, of posts by a particular person, or of posts by a particular person using a specific tag or combination of tags.
How can I get the RSS feeds I want?
To make sure you are correctly subscribing to the feeds you want, go to the page in PennTags with the posts that you want to follow. From there, click on the RSS icon to get the RSS feed URL. Copy the URL and add it to your RSS feed reader. For instance, if you want to be notified every time a new post with the tag video_games is added to PennTags, go to http://tags.library.upenn.edu/tag/video_games and click on the RSS icon that appears on that page. Copy the URL and add it to your feed reader. To learn more about navigating PennTags and finding posts containing specific tags or written by specific people, see Navigating PennTags.
