Get DriveLink on a Newsfeed...

You can now get the latest posts to the DriveLink site automatically, by using a newsreader. Now that doesn't mean you'll need to organise Fiona Bruce or Trevor McDonald to read the site for you, but you utilise an RSS reader to collect the information. Find out more after the jump...

Many websites now have an RSS newsfeed, and here on DriveLink, I thought it was about time to offer you the same. Posts that are put up on the site are automatically picked up by your computer, which means that you don't even need to visit this site to get all the latest on chainsaw maintenance issues.

I'm going out on a limb here, and reckoning that there's a high chance that you'll be using a Windows machine running Internet Explorer - we'll deal Mac's and Safari, or Firefox in a moment.

When you visit this site, you may notice that in Internet Explorer 7 there's a little orange RSS icon - clicking on this allows you to view the news feed and you should get the option to subscribe. Once you've subscribed, you just have to save it to your Favourites when prompted, and from then on hitting Ctrl-J will bring a list of your feeds up.

If you use a Macintosh with Safari then it's a bit different (but not much). When you come to this site (or any other with an RSS feed) using Safari you'll see a blue rectangle with "RSS" showing up in the address bar. Click on it, then check down the side for the "Actions" menu - select "Add Bookmark..." and away you go.

For those of you using the Firefox web browser, you'll see the orange RSS icon in the address bar, click on it and you'll get the option to subscribe.

Of course, if you're using 'odd' operating system - OS/2 Warp or BeOS, for example - you're on your own!
