    Exclamation Steeler Addicts now has an RSS Feed

    Yet another feature added to SA! This is one is cool because if you are at work you can now still see what's going on at SA without even logging in

    Some of you are probably In a nutshell here is what RSS is:
    Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a lightweight XML format designed for sharing headlines and other Web content. Think of it as a distributable "What's New" for your site. Originated by UserLand in 1997 and subsequently used by Netscape to fill channels for Netcenter, RSS has evolved into a popular means of sharing content between sites (including the BBC, CNET, CNN, Disney, Forbes, Motley Fool, Wired, Red Herring, Salon, Slashdot, ZDNet, and more). RSS solves myriad problems webmasters commonly face, such as increasing traffic, and gathering and distributing news. RSS can also be the basis for additional content distribution services.

    There you have it! There is a link on the Homepage to the RSS feed, after you click on the button, depending on how your system is setup and what browser you use, you can either subscribe to the feed or you can copy the link in the url bar and paste it into your desired reader, or here is the link for you: http://www.steeleraddicts.com/forum/external.php?type=rss

    Enjoy!!

    This image will give you guys an idea of what this feature can do. For example, I use FireFox and it has this handy feature to subscribe to feeds. Notice the drop down window coming from "Steeler Addicts News". This is the latest threads that are in SA and I can click on that link and see if there is anything new at anytime. The cool thing is I don't have to be signed into SA or viewing any SA page. This can also be setup other ways as well such as using an RSS feeder, which maybe Top Gun can elaborate on. Also, I believe with Yahoo and Google you can setup feeds as well from sites of your choosing I would have to double check that...

    Would that be the same as like using Tabs in your Toolbar

    most browsers today come with RSS readers built in, or with FF you can download the extension for it if need be.
