What is RSS?
RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) is a method by which users automatically receive information about updates to their favourite websites, such as this one. It is an XML-based format for distribution and aggregating content such as news headlines. RSS provides a way for Warwickshire Police to distribute their content outside of a web browser or even allow other websites to display our content, with links back to our site to gain access to the complete article.
How to read RSS
Internet users can employ special software, like newsreaders and RSS-aggregators, to organize RSS feeds and get automatic updates. Advanced programs can keep you automatically updated on the latest changes to our website by checking RSS automatically.
RSS aggregators are set up to check for updates periodically from the feeds to which you subscribe, usually once every day. In other words, the information comes to you, rather than you having to go to the websites yourself. This saves a tremendous amount of time and you avoid all the non-new information on a web page, including the ads, menus, etc.
Warwickshire Police provides these feeds as a free service. If you intend including any of these feeds on your site, please maintain a link back to us, titled Warwickshire Police and link it to http://www.warwickshire.police.uk. Warwickshire Police reserves the right to require you to cease distributing these feeds at any time for any reason.
