Summary

My RSS Feeds

19 May 2012

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) allows you to subscribe to a website and read the feed. It provides an alternative to joining my email list using the link at the top of each page.

RSS feeds can be read using software called an "RSS reader", "feed reader", or "aggregator", which can be web-based, desktop-based, or mobile-device-based. You subscribe to a feed by entering the feed's URL into the reader or by clicking a feed icon in your web browser.

RSS saves you manually checking on my website to see if there is new content. Instead you can subscribe to the RSS feed, with new content being pushed to you when it becomes available, to read at your convenience.

Feed of the 20 newest items on my website

The simplest way of adding the RSS feed is to copy the address of the feed and past it into the appropriate place in your feed reader. The feed's address is http://www.mohammedamin.com/RSS/MA-20-newest-items.xml If you click the link instead of copying the address, some browsers such as Internet Explorer 9 will give you a preview of the feed, while others such as Chrome may simply show you the rather complicated text of the XML file which makes up the feed.

For example, with Microsoft Outlook 2010, proceed as follows:

  1. Copy the following text http://www.mohammedamin.com/RSS/MA-20-newest-items.xml
  2. Change the view to Mail view.
  3. Right click the RSS Feeds folder.
  4. Select Add a New RSS Feed and left click.
  5. A small window opens up. Into this window paste the text which you copied at step (1) by using the keys CTRL-V
  6. Left click the little button which says Add
  7. You get a box asking Add this RSS Feed to Outlook? Left click the little button which says Yes.

Outlook creates a folder for the Islamic finance feed, showing you the unread items.

If you click the yellow RSS button at the end of this sentence, a window pops up which allows you to add the feed to a number of different feed readers. RSS Feed Readers
