What is RSS?

Many of the index and contents pages have little orange buttons on them, like this:


These are links to a "RSS Feed" for that page. RSS--meaning "Rich Site Summary" or "Real Simple Syndication"--is a great way to keep track of new content on your favorite websites. Simply subscribe by entering the RSS Feed's address into a RSS Reader. Then, your RSS reader will periodically check the website and notify you if there is new content. For example, if you subscribe to one of the Pietisten author pages, you would be notified when an article by that author is added to the site.

The articles on the left contain more information about RSS. They also contain links to some of the popular RSS Readers.
