What are RSS Feeds?
Our RSS feeds allow you to see when we have added new stock to our website. You can be alerted as soon as we add a new stock item, without having to visit our web site.
Feeds are also known as RSS. There is some discussion as to what RSS stands for, but most people plump for 'Really Simple Syndication'. In essence, the feeds themselves are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people.
How do I start using your RSS feed?
If you are using a modern browser such as Internet Explorer 8 or Mozilla Firefox, simply visiting this link will give you an option to subscribe to our updates.
In general, the first thing you need is something called a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications.
Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your e-mail using Outlook, or keep it on a web-based service like Hotmail.
Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to subscribe to our rss feed, which is available here. You can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including by dragging the URL of the feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the link into a new feed in your news reader.
