A news feed is way to have a list of new web content (including press releases, videos, Podcasts, photo galleries, virtual tours, eBlasts, etc.) sent right to your computer. News feeds are also called RSS. There really isn't good agreement on what the letters RSS stand for, but most people say it means Really Simple Syndication.
How can I use Fort Vancouver's News Feed?
Another way to receive the news feed uses a feed reader. Feed readers are simply software that can check the feeds of Web sites and present you with a list of the latest news from those sites. There are many different types. Some work with your Web browser and others are downloadable applications that work on their own.
Once you have chosen a feed reader, all that is left to do is identify the feeds you want it to receive. To subscribe to Fort Vancouver's News Feeds click on the links at the top of this page and then copy and paste the URL of Fort Vancouver's News Feeds into your feed reader.
