The current website of the Chatmouettes
Of course, our website is the best place to keep you posted on the latest news but also on all the subjects that we are deeply interested in. The comments enable you to react on our articles and to interact with us !
But these days the communication’s possibilities have never been so diverse so why limit ourselves to just visiting this website ?
Our RSS feed
What is a RSS feed ?
To keep yourself updated on new articles published on a website, you have to visit this website regularly, which can become off-putting.
A RSS feed enables you to keep up to date as soon as a new article is published on the issuing website. No need to go and check if there are any news on the websites, the information reaches you directly.
Today, the RSS feeds are widespread on the web and are a very efficient way to keep informed.
How to use the RSS feed ?
You’ll see, it’s quite easy.
Different options are available :
- Read the feeds of information in your web browser or your messenger client.
- Examples of web browser managing RSS feeds : Firefox (Windows, Mac OS, Linux), Opera (Windows, Mac OS, Linux), Internet Explorer (from version 7, Windows), Safari (Mac OS, Windows).
- examples of Firefox extensions to improve the review of RSS feed : Wizz RSS News Reader, Sage, Brief.
- examples of messenger clients managing RSS feed : Thunderbird (Windows, Mac OS, Linux), Outlook (from version 2007, Windows), Mail (Mac OS).
- Or use a specific tool, called “RSS drive” or as well “RSS reader“.
- examples of softwares : RSSOwl (Windows, Mac OS, Linux), RSS Bandit (Windows), Akregator (Linux), Liferea(Linux).
- examples of websites offering the possibility to read RSS feeds : Netvibes, Google Reader, FeedBurner.
- You can also install free softwares like Tiny Tiny RSS or rssLounge on your own server, if you have this option, to stay independent and keep your data hidden from view.
Once you have chosen your preferred tool, you just need to add the address of the RSS feed in that one to be automatically and instantly informed as soon as news are published on the website.
The address of our feed to be added in your aggregator is : http://chatmouettes.fr/en/feed/
