RSS (Really Simple Syndication) has become a very popular way for people to collect and view information from various Web sites, especially news-related or blog-related items. As such, I've created a RSS feed for updated information to the VMI Class of 1990 Web site. I'll show 2 ways to view this RSS feed.
The first method uses a program called Feedreader, a freeware RSS aggregator. Download the program from http://www.feedreader.com, install it, then perform the following steps to add the VMI Class of 1990 RSS feed:
Right-click anywhere in the left-hand pane and select New
External Feed or select File, Add Feed from the menu.
Type: http://www.vmi90.org/vmi90rss.xml in the box as
Click the Next button. Then, select which folder you
want to place the feed and click Finish.
If it worked properly, you should see the new feed added.
The next method is for those that have a customizable Yahoo! homepage with either their Yahoo! account or ISP account. (In my case, SBC/Yahoo! DSL)
Click the Add Content link.
Click the Add RSS by URL hyperlink. An example is
Type http://www.vmi90.org/vmi90rss.xml in the text
box, similar to the following:
Click the Add button.
Click the Add Content button. You should see
something similar to the following:
Click the Home link at the top of the screen. The
feed should look similar to the following in your Yahoo! homepage:
