|HAVE WE GOT NEWS FOR YOU?|
Story updated March 26, 2008
Actually, yes we have.
Pinball News is now available for your own pinball web site or computer desktop with our RSS feed.
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and consists of a simple XML file containing our top news stories as seen on our front page.
Using the appropriate code, you can take this file and convert it to HTML code you can include on your web site to display the latest pinball headlines. The code will check occasionally for changes to our XML file and update your site automatically.
Alternatively, you can get RSS readers for your home computer which work like your internet browser or sit on your desktop showing the latest headlines. Windows Vista comes with one called a Gadget that sits on the side of your desktop.
You can even view these headlines in your normal browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.
In all these cases, you need to point your software at our RSS feed.
So where is it? You can find it at:
If you want to add it to your own website, the code you should use depends on how it is set up but if you Google for details of RSS News there's lots of information out there.
