What is an RSS feed?

RSS - also known as Really Simple Syndication - is an XML-based format for distributing news articles. The Redwood Times has RSS feeds for news stories. The feeds include headlines and summaries of stories, and link back to contracostatimes.com for the full stories. The feeds are completely free to use, both through an RSS reader or to include Redwood Times headlines on your web site.


How do I subscribe to a feed?

There are several ways to read an RSS feed. You can download a free RSS reader such as RSSBandit, FeedReader or GreatNews. You can use a web-based RSS reader such as rojo.com.
