RSS Feeds

Subscribe to our news feeds and get our news items delivered to your desktop.

News feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content.

You can get the latest headlines in one place, as soon as they are published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.

Feeds are also known as RSS. There is some discussion as to what RSS stands for, but most people opt for 'Really Simple Syndication'. In essence, the feeds themselves are just web pages that are designed to be read by computers rather than people.

You can subscribe to our RSS feeds below.

How do I start using feeds?

In general, the first thing you need is something called a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser and some that are downloadable applications.

Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your email or keep it on a web-based service.

Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want it to receive.

How do I get a news reader?

A range of different news readers are available and new versions are appearing all the time. Different news readers work on different operating systems, so you will need to choose one that will work with your computer.

News readers

You can select a suitable news reader from Google Directory.

How do I use the Judiciary of Scotland website RSS feed?

If you click on the XML/RSS button on our home page you can subscribe to the feed in various ways. You can drag the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader or you can copy and paste it into a new feed in your news reader.

Some browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, have functionality that automatically picks up RSS feeds for you. For more details on these, please check their websites. We do not accept any liability for our RSS feed.
