More About RSS Feeds

You can subscribe to the State Theta Galleries RSS feed in a number of ways, including the following:

  • Simply click the RSS icon
  • Drag the orange RSS icon into your News Reader
  • Copy and paste the URL of the RSS feed into your News Reader

RSS Feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content.

By subscribing to the feed you can get the latest news updates in one place, as soon as it's published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.

Feeds are generally known as RSS ('Really Simple Syndication') which are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people.

State Theta Galleries provides a single feed for its news updates which is accessible at the top of every page by clicking on the orange RSS icon.

How do I start using feeds?

You will need one of the following to read RSS feeds:

Modern web browser

Modern browsers, including Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Safari and Chrome deal with RSS feeds in different ways. Many of them allow you to add RSS feeds as a browser favourite or bookmark folder, automatically updating them with the latest content.

Note that from Mountain Lion onwards Apple has disabled RSS capabilities in Safari.

Some will automatically provide subscription options whilst others will require you to copy the url of the feed into a web-based or desktop news reader.

The URL for the State Theta Galleries website is: http://www.statetheta.com/State_Theta_Galleries.xml

Web-based news readers

Web-based news readers check feeds and displays any new articles that have been added. They let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, making this option useful if you want to access the feeds from multiple computers or devices.

Desktop news reader

Some email software allows you to read RSS feeds. Note that from Mountain Lion onwards Apple has disabled RSS capabilities in Mac Mail.

In addition, there is dedicated news reader software available that you can download and install on your computer.

http://netnewswireapp.com/ is recommended for Mac users.

News Reader for iPad

Install a news reader from the App Store eg. News Free - RSS Reader on your iPad.

Now, when you click on the RSS icon it will automatically open the News Free Reader where your subscription will be listed under 'Custom Feed'.

How do I get a news reader?

There is a range of different news readers available and new versions are appearing all the time.

Different news readers work on different operating systems, so you will need to choose one that will work with your computer.

Once you have chosen a news reader, you can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including simply clicking on the RSS Icon or by dragging the URL of the feed into your news reader or by copying and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader. Most sites that offer feeds use a similar orange button, but some may just have a normal web link.

If you need to copy and paste the URL of the State Theta Galleries RSS Feed, here it is:
