Jargon Buster – What is a RSS Feed?

RSS technology has been around since 1995. It is the one of the simplest ways of staying connected with the latest news, blogs, audios and videos and the technology is commonly used by major news publishers such as the BBC. It usually contains a title, date and short description about the news, and allows you to click and follow the links of interest to read the full article.

Why RSS feeds?

RSS readers are native to most browsers and email clients such as Outlook and can be streamed to any RSS reader whether on phone, tablet, or desktop.

Allmakes 4×4 stock around 10,000 active product lines and every day changes are being made to our products in terms of price, brand, range and availability. By using RSS technology, we can inform you of these changes as they happen, allowing you to update your systems and make any necessary adjustments to your supplier choices.

How to subscribe to the Allmakes RSS feed

Subscribing is easy and you can choose where the feeds are sent to. The first thing to do is to obtain your RSS address which can be found on the portal under the feed in the left column.

Next, try one of the following:

  • Subscribe and read daily updates using Internet explorer or other browsers e.g. Firefox, Safari, Chrome (requires extension) etc. Instructions>>
