What is an RSS news feed?
RSS stands for 'Really Simple Syndication' news feed, allowing you to receive the latest news direct to your computer, either downloaded or live depending on the program you use.
Instead of visiting the site and searching for the latest headlines and videos, if you sign up to one of our many RSS feeds they will be sent straight to your RSS reader.
How can I start using your RSS feeds?
Most modern Internet browsers such as Opera 9, Firefox 2.0 and Internet Explorer 7.0 feature integrated RSS readers. Alternatively, you can choose from a range of different online or desktop RSS readers.
Online readers allows you to view feeds online, from any computer, simply by visiting a website. Desktop RSS readers download the stories straight to your computer.
For a list of the different readers you can use, go to this site: www.newsonfeeds.com/faq/aggregators

How do I sign up for your RSS feed?
Simply click on the 'RSS Feed' link at the bottom of the lead story in each section. For example, if you would like the latest Shropshire Star News stories, simply visit the 'News' section and you will notice an orange button on the left hand side.
