Using BBC News feeds on your site If you run your own website, you can display the latest headlines from other websites on your own site using RSS.We encourage the use of BBC News feeds as part of a website, however, we do require that the proper format and attribution is used when BBC News content appears.In essence, the feeds themselves are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people. In general, the first thing you need is something called a news reader.This is a piece of software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added.If you click on the RSS button you can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including by dragging the URL of the feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.Most sites that offer feeds use a similar orange button, but some may just have a normal web link.You can access any columnist's feed by replacing firstname-lastname in the following URL with the columnist's first name, a hyphen (-), and last name: to top What is a news reader?A news reader (also known as a news aggregator) is simply a piece of software that you can use to read your subscribed news feeds. The longer answer: if you visit a lot of websites on daily basis, or read a lot of weblogs (or "blogs"), a news reader can save you a lot of time.
Different news readers work on different operating systems, so you will need to choose one that will work with your computer.There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications.Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your e-mail using Outlook, or keep it on a web-based service like Hotmail.We reserve the right to prevent the distribution of BBC News content and the BBC does not accept any liability for its feeds.Please see the Terms and Conditions for full details. It is possible to create your own feeds, by using the BBC News search engine.Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want it to receive.For example, if you would like the latest BBC News Entertainment stories, simply visit the Entertainment section and you will notice an orange button on the left hand side.The attribution text should read "BBC News" or "uk/news" as appropriate.You may not use any BBC logo or other BBC trademark.Review the new results, and if they accurately reflect the topic you have chosen you can now use the orange feeds button to add the selection to your news reader, or to your website.Want to be the first to get ESPN.com's headlines as soon as they are published?
