RSS Feeds

What is RSS?

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an easy way of receiving new content from your favorite sections of the IOM website. RSS feeds contain the headlines and a link to the latest Press Briefing Notes, News Releases, Feature Stories, Speeches and Events on the website.

Subscribing to an RSS feed keeps you up to date, without having to constantly revisit the site to check for updates.

How do I read RSS feeds?

You need a news reader (also called an 'aggregator'), which will check for and inform you of new content in the RSS feed.

For Windows users, there are applications such as FeedDemon. Alternatively, Bloglines, My Yahoo! and NewsGator are online services which eliminate the need for downloading an application.

Once you have chosen an RSS reader, please choose the available feeds on the right. If you click on the RSS button you can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including by dragging the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.

Modern web browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, automatically check for feeds for you when you visit our website. An RSS icon is displayed in the URL bar which you can then click on to get the feed.

RSS auto-discovery can be found in the URL bar on modern browsers.
