What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for distribution of content. RSS feeds allow your favorite news, topics, products, blogs and more to appear in your RSS reader as they are posted, without having to visit the Web site.
RSS feeds require an RSS reader tool to function. Most readers are free and only require downloading and installation on your computer.

How do I establish an RSS Feed?
PennWell and Utility Products offers a variety of RSS feeds with headlines, descriptions and links back to the web site for the full story.
Once an RSS reader has been installed on your computer, click the XML RSS link next to the category you desire. Then follow your RSS readers instructions to insert the RSS feed. In most cases, the process is very easy and may only require a few steps to activate. However, the process may vary from reader to reader.
Use of RSS Feeds:
Link to Content Pages:
The RSS service may be used only with those platforms from which a functional link is made available that, when accessed, takes the viewer directly to the display of the full article on the PennWell Site. You may not display the RSS Content in a manner that does not permit successful linking to, redirection to, or delivery of the applicable PennWell Site web page. You may not insert any intermediate page, splash page, or other content between the RSS Content and the applicable PennWell Site web page.
PennWell retains all ownership and other rights in the RSS Content, and any and all PennWell logos and trademarks used in connection with the RSS service. You must provide attribution to the appropriate PennWell web site in connection with your use of the RSS Content. If you provide this attribution using a graphic, you must use the appropriate PennWell web site's logo that PennWell has incorporated into the RSS Content.
