Sign up for Coping® with Cancer RSS Feeds

RSS iconRSS

Coping has implemented the capability to syndicate content through RSS feeds to notify you when Featured Articles or News is added to the site. Coping feeds are free of charge.

RSS, sometimes known as Really Simple Syndication, allows Web users to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites they are interested in, such as the Coping with Cancer website, copingmag.com. RSS is a popular means of sharing content without requiring you to constantly visit a website to see what's new. An RSS feed delivers regularly updated summaries of web content, including headlines that link to full versions of that content. When you subscribe to a feed, you will be able to quickly see summaries of new information in one place. Many sites display a small icon with the acronyms RSS to let you know a feed is available. RSS is a widely-supported format for feeds.

To subscribe to Coping's RSS feed, you will need an RSS news reader (also called news aggregator). The latest versions of popular web browsers support feeds directly. In these browsers you can simply click on the RSS icon above, on the Coping homepage Featured Articles banner or at the top of any displayed article or news item to subscribe to our feed. If you click on a feed link in an old browser, it may display unfriendly, unformatted code.

News reader software is also available for different computer platforms, many for free. Some are applications that you download and install and others are web-based and work inside your browser. There are also a number of web-based feed readers available. Coping does not recommend or endorse any news reader.

To subscribe to Coping RSS feeds using news reader software, right-click on the RSS icon on the homepage Featured Articles banner or at the top of any displayed article. Next, select "Copy Shortcut" or "Copy Link Location." Follow the instructions for your particular news reader to paste this location (URL) where it asks for the URL of the feed you wish to subscribe to.

Once you have your news reader, it is a matter of finding sites, such as copingmag.com, that syndicate content and adding their RSS feed to the list of feeds your news reader checks.
