RSS: Feed the Beast

An RSS Feed well keep you up to date on the new posts and updates on blogs, wikis and news sources you want to follow. You can add it to the side bar on your blog if you’d like in the Admin panel of word press… But first you have to find the link!

I tried looking for the standard RSS (Rich Site Summary) logo. A little orange wifi looking thing. Never found it. But don’t fear, you can “hack” into the source code of the website and pull it straight from the HTML. (Left click- view page source or Control U or Command U) There is also a trick using page source code to find the last person who looked at your facebook…

Copy this link into your feedly box, or whatever RSS reader you are using. Eh viola. I used IFTTT (If this than that @ ifttt.com) to automatically post the RSS feed from the course website to my blog. IFTTT can also make a smart light turn blue when it rains, or purple when the Vikings score. Beware, this can panic house guests.
