RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”. Subscribing to an RSS feed is a simple way of being notified of website updates as content become available. The WFP Executive Board Document Feed (RSS) will notify subscribers of new documents added to the site in the language of your choice. Every time a new document is added to the Executive Board Document Feed (RSS) your feed will automatically be updated, so you will not need to keep checking the website for updates.
FAQ 02: Why should I subscribe to the Executive Board Document Feeds?
The feed will let you know when documents are posted to the website, so you won’t have to check your email or search around the website to see the latest documents — they’ll be automatically collected in one destination for you. You can subscribe to language-specific feeds, and get documents from a particular area or subject, as well.
FAQ 03: What do I use to read the feeds themselves, and how do I do it?
All you need is an RSS reader, and these are built into most major browsers, including Firefox and Internet Explorer. Firefox calls this feature Live Bookmarks — all you need to do is click on an RSS link (almost always identified with a small orange box like this ) in Firefox and an option to subscribe will appear. Updates will then appear in your bookmarks folder.
Internet Explorer also offers RSS subscriptions, which work in much the same way as Firefox – just click on an RSS feed link and an option to subscribe will appear.
If you have Outlook email, it offers a folder to subscribe to RSS feeds. Just click on the folder in your mailbox called RSS Feeds. At the top, you will see an address field with the words Outlook:RSS Feeds in it. Enter the address executiveboard.wfp.org here, and you will be able to navigate to the board site from within this window. Find the links to the RSS feeds you want to subscribe to, click on them, and you’ll automatically be subscribed within Outlook.
