- How do I subscribe to a Feed?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a collection of standardized data formats used to easily distribute frequently updated information. This syndication system allows users to subscribe to summarized information without browsing a full website.
The City of City of New Haven website has many feeds available. Look for the icon to subscribe to the feed of information displayed in that area.
In order to subscribe to an RSS feed, you will need an RSS reader. RSS readers are frequently built into web browsers. RSS feed readers are also available as desktop clients while others are accessed completely online. Searching the Internet will provide a great number of RSS readers but, for your convenience the lists below outline some popular options.
Online RSS Readers
Most browsers and desktop feed readers will detect when you click on a feed link. If your client doesn't have this feature or if you are using a web-based feed reader service, you can click on the icon and copy the URL from the address bar of your web browser. You can then paste the URL into the appropriate location in your selected feed reader.
