Why Use Feeds?

March 21st, 2011


There are two icons, one icon is for receiving RSS feeds and one icon is for receiving email feeds. We offer these two ways of more conveniently staying in touch with Klausbruckner & Assoc. News.

What Are RSS Feeds, How Do I Use Them?

RSS stands for ‘Really Simple Syndication’, and it is a technology that is being used by millions of web users to keep track of their favorite websites. Previously to keep track of updates on a website you had to ‘bookmark’ websites in your browser and manually return to them on a regular basis to see what had been changed or added.

Now, if you subscribe to our RSS news feeds, then you will be able to receive the latest fire and building code related news and articles quickly after they were published and without the need to visit our website directly by using bookmarks.

Ok, Let Me Try It Out

First, get one of the free RSS readers, e.g. get the “Google Reader,” but there are many others. If you already have a personalized web page, such as MyYahoo, MyGoogle and MyMSN, you are all set. Now, with a few button clicks, our RSS feeds can be simply added to your favorite RSS reader or personalized web page.

Example: Say you have a personalized Google home page and you would like to add our news updates into your home view. Just move the cursor over the “RSS” icon, a list of readers will appear, then click on “Google” as your RSS feed reader. A Google page will ask you whether you would like to add the Klausbruckner & Associates RSS feeds to your Google home page or the Google Reader. Choose and you are done!

Give it a try and, by the way you can easily unsubscribe from our news feeds, just click on the unsubscribe option in your RSS reader or your personalized home page and you will never receive updates from us again.

You Don’t Want To Use RSS? Email Is A Great Alternative

If you choose email feeds, you can receive email updates whenever new articles are posted in our News section.

Just click on the email feed icon in the sidebar, the Feedburner page will ask for your email, and after you verify your address, you are all set. Now you will receive an email each time the feed is updated, but no more than once in a 24-hour period.

You can easily unsubscribe from our email feeds. Just look for the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each new update in the email. Click it and you will no longer receive email updates from us again.
