How to use RSS feeds

RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication, so before you go any further, keep in mind that RSS is really simple!

So how can I deal with RSS feeds and get real time updates of new dive sites, new zones, new coutries, photos and general news. Let's do this in few steps...

Step 1: Use a News Aggregator!

The easiest way to experience RSS is through an RSS "newsreader" or "aggregator" for your desktop computer.

This software will fetch and organize recent content and provide simple ways to read it. There are many RSS aggregators, and three comprehensive lists of them can be found here. What aggregator you should use depends on your own needs. Often it is best to try several out before deciding which you prefer. We personnaly have tried both Thunderbird and Firefox as standalone RSS Agressor:

We also have tested the following web sites that provides Online RSS Aggregators:

Step 2: Grab feeds!

Here is the list of RSS feeds of this site.

Choose the RSS feed you'd like to use and copy and paste the link into the appropriate section of your RSS reader. On most browsers you can right-click the link and select "copy shortcut" or "copy target address" or something like that. Some RSS readers will "auto discover" the RSS feeds on sites you browse, so no cutting and pasting is necessary! Please consult the documentation for your RSS reader for more information.

Additional sub-feeds
Sub-atlas items

On all coutries, zones, dive sites, you will find RSS icons that links to item-specific RSS feeds. For example, all new pictures added into USA can be tracked using this feed!

Step 3: View the content!

These feeds contain recent updates of This includes a title, some content data (Ex: Dive site description, location...) and of course a link to the full description of the item.
