What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for sharing and distributing Web content, such as news headlines. Using an RSS reader, you can view data feeds from various news sources including the Jamaica Gleaner. RSS feeds are free and JamaicaGleaner.com currently uses RSS 2.0.
RSS/News Aggregators (also called Readers) will download and display RSS feeds for you. There are a number of free and commercial News Aggregators are available for download.
Many aggregators are separate, "stand-alone" programs; other services will let you add RSS feeds to a Web page.

Another way many people use RSS feeds is by incorporating content into weblogs, or "blogs". Blogs are web pages comprised of usually short, frequently updated items and web links. Blogging as a publishing tool is used for many purposes: traditional journalism, personal journals, group discussions around a topic, and many combinations in-between.
Use of RSS Feeds:
Link to Content Pages:
The RSS service may be used only with those platforms from which a functional link is made available that, when accessed, takes the viewer directly to the display of the full article on the JamaicaGleaner.com, SportsJamaica.com or JamaicaStar.com Site. You may not display the RSS Content in a manner that does not permit successful linking to, redirection to or delivery of the applicable Jamaica Gleaner Site web page. You may not insert any intermediate page, splash page or other content between the RSS link and the applicable Jamaica Gleaner Site web page.
JamaicaGleaner.com, SportsJamaica.com or JamaicaStar.com retains all ownership and other rights in the RSS Content, and any and all JamaicaGleaner.com, SportsJamaica.com or JamaicaStar.com logos and trademarks used in connection with the RSS Service.
