Frequently Asked Questions about Syndication Feeds
What are ‘Syndication Feeds’?
Syndication feeds are subscriptions to news and updates from a web site. You can view various sites’ feeds in a single news aggregator (also called a “feed reader” or a “news reader”) and see at a glance which of your favourite web sites have been updated. If so, you can click on a link and visit the site to read more.
Why would I read a feed rather than just visiting Poetry X or subscribing to your newsletter?
Subscribing to our syndication feed means that you know when Poetry X (and other sites you visit that offer feeds, and most sites do) has been updated. While our feeds don’t contain any content that isn’t also found on our web site, by adding our feed to your feed reader you can see announcements as they’re added. Our newsletter also provides updates about Poetry X, but less frequently, and via e-mail.
How do I subscribe to the feeds?
Subscribing to a feed varies depending on what feed reader you use, but usually you can just click on one of the little orange buttons that says "RSS," "XML," or "Atom."
What’s the difference between XML, RSS, RDF, Atom, etc.?
Each of those confusing names is just a different format for subscribing to a feed. All of our feed formats contain (mostly) the same information. We provide the same syndication feed in multiple formats so that no matter what feed reader you use you’ll be able to read at least one of our feeds.
Why are there so many choices?
Syndication feeds are still fairly new on the web, and different organizations have created different formats for making feeds. Since different feed readers support different feed formats, we provide multiple feed formats so you can choose the format that best suits your needs. Most feed readers will understand multiple formats.
So which feed should I use?
When in doubt, select the "RSS 2.0" feed. It’s compatible with the most feed readers.
